Self-effacing and focused on great food, craftspeople and artisanship, it provides rare insight into the life of a top flight chef. The multi-award-winning James is a winner of the AA Welsh Restaurant of the Year, holds a Michelin star, 4 *** AA rosettes and has a score of 7 in The Good Food Guide.

I'm delighted to have written my first book. It's a story that focuses on family and food. My grandmother and parents were influential and supportive and in turn I'm encouraging my own children to be part of the restaurant."
