James Martin's American Adventure: Everything you need to know about James Martin's new show

It's safe to say we're pretty excited about this one...

James Martin's American Adventure is the latest in a string of exciting new shows to be announced for the well-loved former host of Saturday Kitchen.

After resigning from BBC One's Saturday morning breakfast show following 10 years at the helm, James Martin thanked fans for their support and revealed that hosting the show for so many years was a 'lifestyle choice' that he now needed a break at home from.

However, it would appear as though the chef couldn't resist coming back to our screens pretty quickly, as James has now been announced as the presenter of multiple foodie programmes set to air this year!

There'll be another run of James Martin's French Adventure, his new weekend show Saturday Morning with James Martin and of course this latest announcement - James Martin's American Adventure.

Presumably being thought up following the success of his previous programme, James Martin's French Adventure, James Martin's American Adventure will most likely adopt the same style. It's thought that the chef will be travelling around the country to explore the most delicious dishes from all over America, while bringing us some of his favourite recipes from across the pond at the same time.

Few details have been released about the show but it has been reported that it will follow James as he makes his from LA to New York, and we're expecting some pretty fantastic food if that's the case!

James has revealed he's 'really excited' about his upcoming new shows, and added that the choice of country for James Martin's American Adventure really appealed to him.

'America is a place I have always loved and the chance to go and explore it both for Daytime and Peak at ITV is one I simply couldn't resist!' the chef revealed.

James Martin's American Adventure recipes: What will he be making?

We don't have any details of the specific American recipes James will be whipping up on his new show yet, but we're allowed to dream. We think there'll be plenty of indulgent recipes like fried chicken, waffles and bacon, New York-style pizza and maybe even a handful of Mexican recipes thrown in too, in the form of Tex-Mex favourites like chilli cheese fries, tacos and jalapeño poppers.

When it comes to the puds we're confident James won't disappoint and we have a feeling he'll be making his famous New York baked cheesecake at some point as well as maybe treating us to indulgent sweet treats like cookies and doughnuts.

When is James Martin's American Adventure on?

It's not yet known exactly when James Martin's American Adventure will air, but there have been reports that it will be given both daytime and peak slots.

We can't wait to see what James has in store, and we'll update you with any news on the new show just as soon we hear any!
