The Grand Tour’s James May to Front Cooking Show for Amazon


Amazon Prime Video has ordered a seven-part cookery series led by The Grand Tour’s James May.

The series, produced by Plum Pictures and New Entity, will be based on May’s first cookbook, Oh Cook!: 60 Easy Recipes That Any Idiot Can Make, published by Pavilion Books. Each episode will cover a specific cuisine theme—including pasta, pub classics, Indian, cakes and roasts—and will feature three recipes each alongside some quick-fix recipes that can be created from the staples generally found in a cupboard.

“I’m delighted to be back working with Amazon Prime Video but in a way, you may not have seen me before,” said May. “I’ve arrived at the age where I spend most of my day thinking about my next meal, so I made a TV series about it. Cooking your own curry is so much more satisfying than ordering a takeaway, even though it won’t taste as nice.”

The new 7×30-minute Amazon Original series will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories later this year.
