People have different interests and hobbies, and for some, they turn into a favorite job. A classic example of this is James Martin, who became a successful cook at a very early age. Below are some details from his life.
James Martin is a famous TV presenter, chef, author of many books on cooking. Born June 30, 1972 in North Yorkshire, UK. He was born into the family of a chef. His father ran the kitchen at Castle Howard, the oldest house in Yorkshire, and the boy helped his mother in the kitchen, from where his interest in cooking began. He lived in Welburn, attended school in Melton, where he was a member of the school's rugby and cricket team, but failed academically due to undiagnosed dyslexia, also known as reading disorder. This affliction develops despite normal intelligence.
Future cook at the age of 16 entered Scarborough Technical College. The progress was very good, and even three times in a row he became the student of the year.
Thus, he was noticed by chef Anthony Thompson, who invited him to work in London, at Queensgate. James worked in many places, traveled all over France, expanding his knowledge andculinary skills. Trained at Hostellerie De Plaisance, Saint-Émilion, France. He then worked at the famous 3-star Michelin restaurant Maison Troisgros in Roanne (France), and then moved to the staff of Anthony Thompson's One Ninety Queen's Gate restaurant in Kensington, London. Culinary talent was in his blood, as evidenced by the fact that at the age of 22 he became a chef at the Hotel du Vin in Winchester, before starting a television career. The main trump card: every day he updated the menu, and customers lined up. Weekend reservations required eight weeks in advance.
What TV shows does James Martin work on?
The cook is known as a TV presenter. Martin James is the chef of the TV show. He focused on food and desserts in Yorkshire. It all started in 1996 in the projects "Ready, Attention, Heat" and "Big Breakfast". At the same time, he participated in the "Cooking on Saturdays" program (2006-2016). It is worth noting that this program was watched by 2.1 million people.
In 2007, he starred in the BBC Two series Sweet Baby James, named after a song by James Taylor. In it, he focused on desserts, puddings and cakes.
In June and July 2007 he co-hosted The Great British Village Show on BBC One. He ended the year with an episode on UKTV Food called James Martin's Christmas. He also made a 30-episode feature for the BBC in 2007 called Feeding with the Enemy. It aired in July and August 2008. In SeptemberIn 2011, it was commissioned to update the menus for the catering facilities at Scarborough General Hospital and the BBC Hospital. The show has been restarted. The second and third series were shown on BBC One in 2013 and 2014 respectively. In July 2013, James appeared alongside Angela Harknet and Richard Corrigan on BBC One in a special edition of The Great British Menu titled The Great British Budget Menu.
The show aimed to highlight the food monotony of the underprivileged and engage chefs in preparing nutritious meals on a budget. In September 2013, James Martin's Food Map was broadcast in the UK on BBC Two. There were 10 episodes, each focusing on a specific region of Britain.
James researched the products of each area and prepared two dishes per transfer. Since 2013, he has been a Junior Bake Off judge on CBBC. Many of the dishes were inspired by memories of his childhood in Yorkshire and many local small food producers and chefs participated in the program. In October 2014, James presented a new afternoon show for BBC One called Meet the Street. It was aimed at uniting people and overcoming loneliness. In 2015, he appeared on numerous The One Show with Alex Jones.
In 2015, James presented The Box, a daily cooking series for BBC One. In February and March 2016, he held his first live show in the UK called Cookers, Helpers and Cars. In April2016, Martin presented the program Morning with a guest named Ruth. The second transmission took place in July 2016, this time with Holly Willoughby. During the summer of 2016 co-presented this morning show every Friday with Anita Rani. Since 2017 he has been hosting the new morning TV show "With James Martin" for ITV.
You can guess that James Martin's books are about cooking. The first came out in October 1998 under the title "Eating with James Martin". The desserts described in the book are very accessible to housewives. Various recipes are presented that can be prepared both at home and in a restaurant. Some desserts can be prepared in minutes. But there are also festive dishes that need to be given enough time.
In general, the choice is very large, for all occasions. It should be noted that only the book "Desserts" has been translated into Russian. I hope to see more of his books published. He writes that he looks with horror at how people buy everything in supermarkets instead of making delicious pastries at home. James participates in many culinary exhibitions. In 2004 there was one in which they had to choose the best British restaurant. In this exhibition, James was also a participant.
The second book came out in 2000, in the fall. It's called The Book of Delicacies. In 2003, British Dinners appeared. But the last one saw the light in 2007. Its name is "British Village". Many food lovers will need James Martin's books.
Martin likes high performance cars and even raced them. It was televised on December 28, 2008. He was unable to complete the race due to a breakdown.
On June 3, 2013, he won his first race at Brands Hatch, becoming Champion of the Year. Martin also competed in the Aston Martin GT races at the Aston Martin Centenary Festival in July 2013 where he placed 9th out of 30 drivers. In 2009, Martin received a private pilot's license. Martin has two dogs named Fadi and Ralph.

The most famous abstract artists: definition, direction in art, features of the image and the most famous paintings
Abstract art, which has become a symbol of a new era, is a direction that has abandoned forms that are as close to reality as possible. Not everyone understands, it gave impetus to the development of cubism and expressionism.
