‘James Martin’s French Adventure’ is on ITV at 3pm every day this week.
In this brand new food travel series, the TV chef is travelling through France to locations that inspired his culinary career.
Holidaying and studying in France as a teenager, the country was influential in establishing his love for food.
Hitting the open road on a journey of nostalgia, the show follows James as he retraces the TV trip that his role model Keith Floyd (who was also a celebrity cook) once took 30 years ago, while also visiting the places that carved his gastronomic beginnings.
Today (Monday February 20) James visits Normandy. He continues onto Giverny tomorrow (Tuesday February 21) and then moves to Paris (Wednesday January 22), Palace of Versailles (Thursday February 23) and finally – in the last episode of the series – Bois de Boulonge (Friday February 24).
Paying homage to Keith, James travels the length and breadth of the country in Floyd’s very own Citroen 2CV which he owned for 16 years, as he rediscovers the cuisine and the country closest to his and Keith’s heart.
