Penguin Books NZ are bringing Jamie Oliver to New Zealand to promote his best selling book, The Naked Chef. The tour will take him to Auckland, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin for a series of book signings and events.

"Jamie's visit is a fantastic coup for New Zealand. With the level of interest received, I anticipate his tour will be a tremendous and sell-out success," says Penguin Books NZ Managing Director, Tony Harkins.

The Naked Chef has sold half a million copies world-wide and is currently number one on the Booksellers NZ bestsellers list.

In April 1999, at only 23 years old, this British chef achieved celebrity status with his own BBC TV series and the publication of his first book. The BBC series was screened in New Zealand by TVNZ to huge acclaim in January this year.
