Episode 1
Following the success of his French Adventure, chef James Martin is setting off on the next leg of his journey - the U S of A. 
This is a trip that James has been longing to take and it’s a road trip as road trips are meant to be! He’ll travel with a range of different machines - including a 70s Pontiac and a vintage Porsche. 
Starting in Napa Valley, James and his trusty crew will head to LA, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, New Orleans, The Hamptons and more, all culminating in New York. 
In this peak time re-version of the popular daytime series, James drops in on his old friend, chef-to-the-stars Wolfgang Puck at his Beverly Hills restaurant and cooks on Santa Monica’s famous beach. Plus, James cooks in front of a mural dedicated to his favourite ingredient - butter!
By exploring food which is more surprising, exciting, diverse and enthralling than any of us imagine, James will get under the skin of a nation perhaps more troubled and divided than it has been for a generation, discovering that it can still amaze the spirited traveller with a dizzying range of fantastic cuisine and bucket list experiences… many of which James has a go at. 
James conjures up a vision of the food scene in the USA both unexpected and enthralling, adding his own versions of classic dishes.
