John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen

John Torode MBE and Lisa Faulkner return this Autumn for series nine of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen 

Chef John Torode MBE and home cook Lisa Faulkner will be back on ITV1 and ITVX this autumn for series nine of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen - and the duo are on cloud nine this time round with the added bonus of a brand new book to accompany the series.

Following the success of series eight and their new Australian adventure series earlier this year, ITV have commissioned a further 10 episodes of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen fronted by the hugely popular culinary couple. 

Produced by ITV Studios Daytime, the new series will see the perfect partnership serve up a mix of delicious, exciting and original family-favourite dishes that encompass time-saving and cost effective hacks that viewers are familiar with.

The ten-part series - set to return Saturday mornings - will deliver mouth-watering themes including ‘Top Traybakes’, ‘Time Saving Treats’, ‘Simple But Special’ and ‘Fakeaway-tastic Feasts’. Whilst other new themes such as ‘Take 5’ will show an array of dishes using just five key ingredients, ‘Breezy Brunches’ for leisurely weekends, ‘In a Spin’ will provide a new take on some classic traditional meals, ‘Flour Power’ explores delicious and imaginative uses for this store cupboard staple (including gluten-free versions), and a mix of ‘Weekend Warmers’ and ‘Decadent Dishes’ will provide the ultimate comforting and guilt-free dishes for the autumnal months ahead.

John Torode said:

"We are back! We have been preparing for series 9 of Weekend Kitchen which has just been incredible - these dishes will blow your mind this autumn. To have our very first ever book together to go alongside it will make this series extra special too, we really cannot wait to reveal more soon!"

 Lisa Faulkner added:

"We are so happy to be back for another brilliant series. Weekend Kitchen never feels like work for us which is why we love it so much. We adore putting together these new dishes and now to have all of our favourite recipes and more in one book fills me with such joy."

For the first time viewers and fans of the couple can enjoy John and Lisa’s recipes from this new series and a selection of favourites from the previous eight series’ in their debut cookbook John & Lisa’s Kitchen. 

John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen is produced by ITV Studios Daytime and will be sponsored by Waitrose.

The book John & Lisa’s Kitchen will be published in the UK, US and Australia by Quadrille this September.
