Aaron Craze

A graduate from Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen', Aaron Craze proves that reality television can unearth raw talent.

Aaron learnt to cook on the 2002 televised series devised to train disadvantaged young adults with kitchen skills. After graduating with flying colours he moved on to The Ivy and Claridges before landing himself his very own gastro pub - The Cock Inn.

Unfortunately after a few years, The Cock was forced to close. Craze bounced back though and has returned to work at Fifteen as chef tournant, which allows him to supervise every area of the kitchen.

A regular guest chef on Market Kitchen Aaron made his own exclusive series for the Good Food channel, Aaron Craze: Rude Boy Food and has written a cookery book called Aaron Cooks Italian.
