James Martin, 48, was showing viewers how to make Goat’s Cheese and Hazelnut with Baked Beetroot Salad in a lovely garden. However, James spoke about his dislike of goat’s cheese, and said on the ITV show: “I like to use a really light goat’s cheese. I’m not a fan of goat’s cheese, it’s got to be said.”
James shared the trick behind getting the perfect onion rings at home.
The chef sliced an onion in fine circles and then dropped the slices into the flour.
“No need to put them in flour first, they’re just going to go straight in there anyway,” he said, as the batter is sufficient coating.
James then used his hands to mix the onions in the flour.
James has had years of success on TV and with his restaurants. What is his net worth?
The 48-year-old was born in Malton, North Yorkshire, and grew up on a farm near Castle Howard, a stately home in the area.
His father had taken on the role of catering manager at the castle, kick-starting James’ love for food and cooking.
James trained as a chef at Scarborough Technical College, where he won Student of the Year for three years running before heading to London to embark on his career in the kitchen.
