Celebrity chef and Yorkshireman James Martin’s passion for food began when his father took the role of catering manager at the Castle Howard estate. James learned his craft at Scarborough Catering College before going on to work in London. His first head chef role was at Hotel Du Vin just before his 22nd birthday. As we all know James went on to become one of the stars of Ready Steady Cook before joining Saturday Morning Kitchen in 2006 and staying at the helm for ten years!
In 2016 James went on a tour of France for his TV show, James Martin’s French Adventure, in Floyd’s very own Citroen 2CV, visiting locations inspired by his culinary hero Keith Floyd.
In 2017 saw the launch of James’s own Saturday morning show, Saturday Morning with James Martin, which is filmed in his own kitchen!
