Storyline

James May is not a chef. But that's the whole point: you don't need to be a brilliant cook to make delicious food. Transporting us to the Far East, the Med, and the local pub - all from the comfort of a home economist's kitchen - he'll knock up delicious recipes that you can actually make yourself, with ingredients you can actually buy. And all without the usual television cooking format trickery. Written by The James May: Oh Cook! Team

Finally a cooking show for us mere mortals
9 January 2021 | by washy-252-395886See all my reviews

As much as I love a good cooking show where a professional chef shows you how easy it is to turn out a masterful dish of culinary delight there is always something they neglect to point out, you won't be as efficient as they are, if a chef is telling you that you can do this dish in 15 minutes, add 45.

However this is where Mr May comes in, he hides nothing about his cooking ability and even has to refer to the instructions putting himself on the same level as us. He even has plenty of interesting trivia about elements of what he is doing which make you sit there and think, "wow I never knew that". That accompanied with his usual wit and delivery make this an excellent cooking show, and one we can all relate to.
