You sort of expect the cuisine sold by celebrity chef brands to be overpriced, but this is another level. Apparently Oliver’s stand at the cricket ground is selling steak sandwiches for £20 a pop, and bacon sandwiches for £8.50.
One angry Twitter user, Nick Hoult, tweeted: ‘England point to the pitch for a day when only paying for a Jamie Oliver £20 quid steak sarnie raised the pulse’.
Thankfully, one user tweeted the menu for us to gawp at with our own eyes:
If Jamie Oliver thinks I'm handing over 20 notes for a steak sarnie then he's sadly mistaken. twitter.com/AdamClarke501/…— Adam Clarke (@AdamClarke501) May 16, 2013
Jamie Oliver charged £20 for a steak sandwich at Lords yesterday. That'll get the working class in.— Barrie White (@BarrieWhite1980) May 17, 2013
