James Martin has seemingly kept a low TV profile since finishing up on Saturday Kitchen earlier this year—aside from all those Great British Bake Off rumours, of course - but that doesn’t mean the chef hasn’t been keeping himself incredibly busy.
French recipes from James Martin? We can't wait to add this cookbook to our shelves!
In fact, with plenty of extra time on his hands, James has been lining up a whole host of exciting new projects.
Along with heading all over the country to discover more about our fantastic fresh food producers (here’s what happened when he headed off to discover where our prized Tomkin tomatoes come from), James has also filmed a brand new cookery show set to air in the run-up to Christmas, and is now penning a brand new recipe book too.
That’s right foodies, a brilliant new James Martin cookery book is on its way!
While the finer details are still top secret, our favourite celebrity chef and his team have shared a few teasers on Instagram, which are of course getting fans all revved up.
Breaking the news on Tuesday, James shared a behind-the-scenes snap of some rather good looking crockery, all primed for his first day of recipe shooting.
In the caption, he wrote: “All this can only mean one thing...a new cookbook shoot! V exciting.”
During the second day of shooting, the chef shared a snap of his photographer hard at work reviewing new photographs for the book, and while we don't have a close-up view, we have to admit that that's some very tasty-looking food we spy on his computer screen.
Here’s the most mouth-watering detail we’ve learned so far though; if teasers from food stylist Sam Head are anything to go by, James’ new book will be French themed!
Sharing snaps of goujons, a cep mushroom tart, and what may possibly be duck slices served with runny eggs and veggies, Sam’s Instagram snaps all referenced French food, with the hashtag #France.
