Whether skateboarding across the kitchen as a child,or taking part in the world's most prestigious vintage road race, TV chef James Martin has never been oneto sit still. In this entertaining narrative he revealshow his two passions - cooking and cars - have fuelled his hopes, dreams and successes and made him the household name he is today.
