Jamie Oliver has paid tribute to Kevin Boyle, one of the first apprentices at the original Fifteen restaurant who was found dead in January, in a supper club event to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the project.

The celebrity chef, who started the Fifteen apprenticeship project in 2002 which now trains young people to work in restaurants in London, Cornwall and Amsterdam, paid special tribute to Boyle and the many graduates who were now enjoying successful careers in the industry.

Five of the original graduates returned to the Islington restaurant to cook a special meal for 65 invited guests including the family of Boyle who were guests of honour at the event.

Speaking at the meal Oliver said the late chef was "a beautiful person and he would have loved this tonight." The supper club was the first of ten similar events that are planned for the year to celebrate a decade since the launch and the subsequant television programme Jamie's Kitchen.
