Hi All
If you like France and James Martin then his new show on ITV is a must see. It was wonderful to see our part of, often hidden France, depicted in such a positive light. Guaranteed to make you feel hungry Smile

Jeez, not another Gendarme Bake Off vs Patisserie Bikers! Very Happy

I don't get cookery shows.

Gosh Essar, not all of us want to watch Top Gear Smile
I love the sight seeing food combo. In this crazy world it's so relaxing and reassuring.

I've never seen Top Gear either or any other reality/celebrity/Khardigans or anyone elses "watch me" show.

One or two cookery shows would be watchable; but, dozens of them!. I saw an ad for a children's cookery kid off and almost choked on my cuppa. Why do they think everyone wants to watch several international versions of a cake off - Oz Bake Off, Dutch cheese off.....

Very Happy

To be fair, the James Martin programme is largely travelogue, very much in the style of Rick Stein or of Martin's hero, Keith Floyd. He explores an area rather amiably, meets up with the locals, samples their wine and rustles up a regional-type dish with something of a flourish.
I don't like pure cookery programmes either, but this one is entertaining and informative as well as opening one's eyes to the wider possibilities of the French countryside. It's not everyone's taste, but it works for me.

Ah yes, but does anyone remember Fanny Craddock, the TV chef who always did her cooking in an evening gown? Mind you she had assistants to do the dirty work including her husband, Johnny. This was long before Delia came on the scene.

And the famous quote by her husband on air when Fanny was cooking..

"You too can cook doughnuts like Fanny's".

Note the capital F here!!

Depends on which side of the railway lines:

Yet Another Cookery Program
OR
Yet another Car program

But James Martin is a car nut as well as a tellychef... He did a programme on and with Jackie Stewart without a saute pan in sight, and very good it was too. Although he did enthuse about driving a De Tomaso, which did lead me to question his palate... Rolling Eyes
