Throughout the summer James Martin is going to be sharing some of his best food tips and recipe ideas with us – like the delicious warm tomato relish for his Ultimate Burger:

We’re going to be listening out for the kind of things our Facebook fans would like to see from James. If you’ve got a question or kitchen dilemma you’d like him to help you with leave a comment on our Facebook post. We’ll pick some good ones for James to answer next time he’s with us.

James says: “I can’t wait to get stuck in. I can’t think of a better way to offer inspiration to busy families looking to cook up simple, tasty meals on a budget while still having time to enjoy life.”

You can find out how James has been getting ready for his new role at Asda in our Good Living interview – and see the first of his summer recipes here.
