In episode 13, James arrives in the distinct and diverse region of The Camargue. He begins his exploration at Les Marquises, the Laurent family’s farm, where James learns all about the Camargue Bull. We also see how the region is famous for fleur de sel - a delicate salty crust, which forms on the surface of seawater and is hand harvested in the waters of Aigues Mortes. James visits a rice farm where owner, Jacques, shows him around the paddy fields and later cooks James a risotto using his own rice-brewed beer.
TV chef James Martin is set to star in brand new food travel series on ITV, journeying through France to the locations that inspired his culinary career and paying homage to his culinary hero Keith Floyd.
Holidaying and studying in France as a teenager, the country was influential in establishing James’ love for food. Hitting the open road on a journey of nostalgia, the new series follows James as he retraces the memorable TV trip his food hero Keith Floyd once took 30 years ago, while also visiting the places that carved his culinary beginnings.
Exploring and sampling the very best in French cuisine, James’ journey starts in Provence and continues onto Perigord, Burgundy, Alsace, Pay Basque and Brittany, all the while stopping to produce his own versions of the iconic dishes he finds on location.
