Chef James Martin has announced an 18-date tour of the UK this October - ‘On the Road Again’ – which will combine his love for cooking and cars, with live demonstrations, cooking tasks and regional guest chefs at each event.

Following the success of his 2016 tour, Martin said: “I can’t wait to get back on the road. Last time around, I was absolutely blown away by the reception - it was really thrilling to be able interact more directly with an audience which is something I can’t do on TV. 

“Lots has happened since 2016. I’ve been on a culinary journey of a lifetime with my French and American Adventure TV shows and my Saturday morning show (ITV), which I hope to integrate in to this tasty live show.

“I’ll be pulling together my favourite recipes and mixing in plenty of surprises and special guests in what I hope is going to be feast of a performance!”

As well as demonstrating his cooking skills - in what he hopes to be an “entertaining, fast-moving immersive show” - On the Road Again will provide Martin the opportunity to showcase his passion for the outdoors and fast cars, too.

Within each live show, guests can expect a “twist” as the chef attempts to create a dish in “the most difficult of circumstances”; a regional guest chef; and insight into both cooking and cars.

Martin added: “It’s very important for me that we put on a show and a performance. It’s not just going to be me standing at an oven baking some bread!

“I had such great feedback from the first tour that I am determined to put all my energy into this one to make it even better!”
