John & Lisa's Weekend Kitchen

Series overview

A brand new series of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen - produced by ITV Studios Daytime - will return to ITV this Spring.
Each week John and Lisa will continue to inspire and influence at home menus for spring into summer. Whether this year the nation is holidaying at home or picnicking slightly further afield, the series is bursting with ideas and packed with original, delicious and always easy-to-cook dishes.

Throughout the series, viewers will also see professional chef John and home cook Lisa make the most of seasonal ingredients, as well as lots of inspiration in what can be achieved from everyone’s store cupboard essentials. Packed with tips and masterclass demos, John & Lisa's Weekend Kitchen is guaranteed to deliver a mouth-watering array of recipes designed for all.  

Episode themes this series include ‘The Anytime Menu’ - a host of dishes made from ingredients that can work for breakfast, lunch or dinner. ‘The Beauty of Baking’ - the science and art of all things baked and beautiful from bread to savoury family meals and some all important sweets and ‘A Taste of Summer’ - be it a stay or a va...cation, these are the flavours that conjure up happy memories of long summer days. With inspiring recipes including huevos rancheros tortilla bowls, strawberry shortcake crunch bake, quick Catalan fish stew, paneer, radish and chickpea curry and sunshine prawns served in a bread bowl. 

Episode 5

John and Lisa have some Summertime Centrepieces at the ready in their Weekend Kitchen.

With hope of seeing more friends and family, these dishes are sure to please everyone. John starts with his favourite beef rendang - a slow cook that’s worth the wait. There are drinks and nibbles with courgette and pea fritters and a ginger mocktail. Lisa has some beautiful prawns served in the tastiest bowl of all - a bread bowl. And finally there are super simple ricotta ‘doughnuts’ and chocolate sauce for dessert.
