Have you been watching the new series James Martin’s French Adventure? A twenty parter that takes the ex Saturday Kitchen hero through his favourite parts of France. Reminiscing and following in some of the legendary Keith Floyd’s footsteps; his own memories of childhood holidays and his early years as a chef in France. Having been offered the opportunity to buy Keith Floyd’s car, James takes off in the old 2CV on a journey for our discovery of cooking, site seeing – always food related and a look behind the scenes of some fabulous unknown ‘spots’.
Despite being a daytime slot – here’s hoping there’s more – with a touch of the record button you can have your daily dose of fab French cuisine, some cooked on location, with James Martin’s humorous irreverence and more than a touch or two of wine.
The cook book that goes with the series is packed with 80 recipes, many of them French classics, described with an ease that makes them possible to reproduce at home. An oozing Croque Monsieur stuffed with cheese and ham, a delicious Braised Chicken With Red Wine Vinegar And Tarragon, a one pot meal with a lot of finesse.
This is not a travelogue and the dishes aren’t split by region as they are in the series, but by six sections covering snacks and starters, fish, meat, poultry and game, vegetables and salads and of course, desserts and pastries, it’s easy to navigate and there are plenty of full page photos of the recipes and from the series.
