Immensely popular northern chef who made a name for himself at Antony Worrall Thompson’s 190 Queensgate. At the tender age of 22 he was head Chef at the Hotel and Bistro du Vin in Winchester, offering his signature style food - Modern British with a hint of Mediterranean.

With wide-ranging experience cooking in the chateaux of France, James combines elegance with glamour. Rarely off the television screen, his own series include Out of the Frying Pan for Carlton (2003 and 2004) and Yorkshire’s Finest for UKTV Food (2004). His series Stately Suppers was broadcast by the BBC early in 2006. James is a regular member of the Ready Steady Cook team and entranced Saturday night audiences before Christmas as one of the celebrities taking part in Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1, eventually reaching the semi-finals. He is now presenting BBC 1's Saturday Kitchen.

James’s multiple talents include driving fast cars and motorbikes. Nonetheless he finds the time to attract crowds at his cooking demos as well as publish a string of books, the latest of which is The Great British Village Show Cookbook (BBC Books, Feb 2007)
