James Martin mocked for ‘using too much butter’ by celeb chef and co-star Francesco Mazzei | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
“Our afternoon snack – guess what it was? Sugar with extra virgin olive oil on top. I’m not joking – that’s what it was.
“If you try that with kids now, they will not talk to you for the rest of the day!”
However, Francesco confides that James is “a big fan” of the ingredients, even if some might describe them as unhealthy.
“I was [also] the first one to bring nduja to this country from Calabria and James Martin gave me the chance to showcase that on the show,” he explained of the spicy sausage snack, for which he is now renowned.
“The fact that I can showcase some of my south Italian ingredients on the show, and make Calabria known as a region where the good food is, has been amazing.”
