James Reeson was last seen on the ABC and BBC Worldwide network in his own series, James Can Cook, prior to that James fronted the very popular series, The Occasional Cook. James started his cooking career in Bristol UK, has worked in the best hotel in Plymouth, followed by Burgh Island and next stop – Paris. James' most vivid memory is his time doing laps of the Mediterranean cooking on a sixty-foot ketch and then a Saudi Princes fifty-metre cruiser strapped to a swivelling stove in a kitchen the size of a cupboard!

From intimate bistros, to head chef in a two-hundred seat restaurant, James has vast experience working with different kitchens, customers and conditions. Now, James has made Australia his permanent home and believes it is, without doubt, the best 'foodie' place on the planet.

"It's so exciting to be able to do what I love five days a week and inspire viewers across Australia to have fun in the kitchen and treat their taste buds with fresh food," Reeson said. "Australia really is home to some of the highest quality ingredients and to be able to have access to such first rate produce is fantastic."

James is extremely passionate about his cooking and he loves to use fresh quality ingredients. He has an energetic and inspirational flair that will encourage any home chef – his passion to create delicious dishes really is contagious.

Ok, everybody is entitled to their own opinion but, seriously, have you ever actually made any of his dishes? I have made several and they are generally fantastic! I personally love James' relaxed, friendly style - so refreshing to watch a chef who is not totally conceited and his knife work alone is a joy to watch. Try his roasted pumpkin and mussel soup (I used smoked oysters instead) absolutely sensational and impresses dinner party guests although it is the simplest thing in the world to make. Keep up the great work, James, can't wait for the next series...

Was going to make the Zucchini Soup recipe but the ingredients say. 1 BAG of frozen peas. Last time I bought peas I had a choice of 500g or 1kg bags!! So, that didnt help much. Also I have never heard of a head of garlic so I can only assume that means a full garlic but half of that would be far too much for any dish. Not happy, not making this soup!!
