James Martin (born June 30, 1972 in Malton, North Yorkshire), is an English celebrity chef who first appeared on television in 1996.
Martin was brought up on a farm in Yorkshire, which gave him a passion for gardening and home cooking. His father was Catering Manager at Castle Howard and Martin worked in the kitchens from the age of 10, cooking for the Queen Mother on one occasion whilst only 11 years old.
Whilst studying at Yorkshire Coast College, Scarborough, Martin was named Student of the Year three years running. After college his career took him to acclaimed kitchens in London and Europe. He then moved to the famous Chewton Glen in Hampshire. In 1993 he opened the Hotel du Vin and Bistro in Winchester where, as Head Chef, he changed the menu every day. It was a great success, with an eight-week waiting list for a weekend table. He also has two restaurants on Ocean Village and Ocean Village Two called James Martin’s Bistro, where he appears on ship and does live demonstrations (check web site for details).
He also owns a Deli in Winchester, called "Cadogan & James".
