| AND FINALLY| LAST WORD 1 2 3 4 5 WORDS: GEORGINA MARIC | PHOTOGRAPHS: WILL IRELAND, SHUTTERSTOCK TUCK INTO A FEW BITE SIZED MORSELS OF FOODIE TRIVIA WE DISH UP SOME TASTY FACTS ABOUT JAMES MARTIN He got through to the semi-final of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing back in 2006 and lost 3½ st in four weeks during the process! James still holds the world record for carrot chopping, in which he peeled and cut up 22 (515g) whole carrots in just one minute. The TV chef once dated film producer, Barbara Broccoli, known for her work on the James Bond films. James ended things when she insisted on buying him a state-of-theart Aston Martin DBS, chassis number 007, costing £180,000. He later said the reason the couple split was because he didn’t fit into her Hollywood world. James’ latest recipe book has just hit the shelves, called Slow Cooking: Mouthwatering Recipes with Minimum Effort (£20, Quadrille), and features show-stopping slow-cook dishes that anyone can master. A performance car fanatic, James entered a vintage Maserati in the 2008 Mille Miglia car race, but he failed to complete the course. ‘THE SE LLY ISN’T COOKING REAED. IT ’S AT COMPLIC HEFS BASICALLY C GREAT TO APPLYING HEAT . THAT’S DIENTS INGRE IT,’ SAYS JAMES F HOT STUFF RET O C HARD WORK PAYS OFF Like many of the great chefs before him, Luke Thomas had an early start Teenage chef, Luke, is just 18 but has become the newest chef-patron at Berkshire restaurant Luke’s Dining Room, at Sanctum On The Green hotel. Since the age of 12 he has worked evenings, weekends and holidays in restaurants and as part of his training, did work placements at top restaurants including The Fat Duck and Rhodes W1, Alinea in Chicago and La Pergola in Rome.
