               Why France, you might ask, and why now?

Well it’s been over thirty-five years since I went there as a young chef and, in a way, I owe it all to France. I mean, it was those early trips that set the course of my career – from the unforgettable taste of my first croissant to seeing a steak cooked ‘blue’, not burnt to a cinder.

James Martin's French Adventure sees the superstar chef journey the length and breadth of the country, sampling the very best food France has to offer.

Along the way he cooks seafood in Marseille, shops at colourful Provençal markets, cooks with legendary chefs including Michel Roux and Pierre Gagnaire and explores the vineyards of Burgundy. With 80 recipes for fabulous French classics, as well as James's own takes on the delicious dishes he tastes on the road, you'll be spoilt for choice.

Enjoy a warming bowl of vibrant pistou soup on a chilly evening, or take duck rillettes with fig and peach chutney on your next picnic. For a treat, try scallops Saint Jacques with champagne sauce or a classic boeuf bourguignon. And what better end to a meal than a pear and rosemary tarte tatin or a refreshing iced blackberry souffle?

Overflowing with stunning photography, James Martin's French Adventure is a must-have for anyone who loves the good life and great, simple food.

Best-known as the host of the BBC series Saturday Kitchen, James Martin cut his teeth as a budding chef around the kitchens of Castle Howard as his parents farmed on the estate. Specialising in traditional British cookery, his bestselling recipe books include Slow Cooking, Fast Cooking, Home Comforts and More Home Comforts.

“Food for thought”

Enjoyed the TV Series and the recipes in the book. Disappointed the recipes didn't link back to the places which inspired them.
