John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen (series 4)

Series overview

A new series of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen returns to ITV for Saturday mornings.

Series four of the successful cookery show, with husband and wife duo John Torode and Lisa Faulkner, was filmed at the Television Centre studios in London during lockdown. Adhering to social distancing measures amid the Covid-19 crisis, the series was filmed with a minimal crew and following all necessary health and safety advice. 

The nation is cooking more than ever and in this new series professional chef John and home cook Lisa will be able to help viewers easily answer the ‘What’s for tea?’ question, with their accessible, imaginative and easy-to-cook ideas for family meal times. Each episode will have a different food theme and the pair will be using easy to source ingredients that viewers will have in their cupboard, fridge or freezer as well as providing plenty of alternatives and at-home hacks. 

New to the series, John and Lisa will also feature special how-to demos on techniques which they prove aren’t as complicated as some cooks may imagine. From showing how easy it really can be to make pasta without a machine or how to prep and get the best out of an aubergine. 

Episode 1

In the first episode of the new series the food theme is ‘It’s All Greek to Me’, where John and Lisa will provide viewers at home with simple and sunny Greek inspired flavours. Recipes include roast Greek lamb with orzo and olives, prawn saganaki pies, veggie cheat’s moussaka and a super easy baklava for dessert.
