  • About James Martin
    James Martin has made a huge impact since he began to appear on British television in November 1996 and has rarely been off the screen since.  After hitting new record viewing figures of 2.1 million hosting the BBC’s Saturday Morning Kitchen, James has recently added two additional shows to his list – fronting Sweet Baby James and The Great British Village Show. In Autumn 2006 James gained a whole new army of fans with his newfound prowess on the dance floor when he appeared in the British version of Strictly Come Dancing, dancing his way straight into the semi finals. In 1994 at the ripe old age of 21, James opened the Hotel and Bistro du Vin at Winchester as Head Chef, where he daringly changed the menu every day. Such was the success of this venture, there followed an eight week waiting list for weekend diners. James’ television career began in November 1996 with Ready Steady Cook and he was also a frequent guest on Saturday Kitchen. James carries out many cookery demonstrations across the UK each year at various events including The Derbyshire County Show and The Malvern and the Yorkshire Food & Drink Show, and was also involved in The 2004 National Fish & Chip Shop of the Year Awards. Last year James also judged the prestigious Nestle Toque D’Or Award. His first book, Eating in with James Martin was published in October 1998. This was followed by a series of cookery books including The Deli Cookbook in Autumn 2000, Great British Dinners in 2003 and Easy British Food in mid June 2005. Great British Winter was published in 2006 and James' latest book, The Great British Village Show Cookbook hit the shelves in February 2007.  
  • Appliances
    I chose the Dual Fuel Range with the charbroiler and griddle as it gives me the best of both worlds, with gas hobs for excellent temperature control and a dual convection electric oven. The fact that there are eight cooking modes, which provide four different heat sources within the same oven also greatly attracted me. This function means I can roast, proof bread and griddle using the same appliance. It also reduces cooking time and gives even browning without drying out the food. James is a steadfast fan and owner of Sub-Zero & Wolf, shown by his choice of these products, specifying them not only on 'Saturday Kitchen' but in both his previous and current homes.
“I have always found the Wolf brand first class, dependable and so easy to use, which is essential when cooking in a fast-pace environment like a busy restaurant kitchen.”

  • Restaurants
    When Simon Rimmer opened his first restaurant, Greens, ( in 1990, he did so with two cookery books, no idea how to cook, but a passion to create a great destination restaurant….and chat girls up! He wasn’t even supposed to be in the kitchen. His role, or so he hoped, was front of house lothario to the beautiful people of West Didsbury. However, financial reality got him into the kitchen (no money to employ anyone) - a decision that changed his life. Within two years the Guardian described Greens as one of the most exciting restaurants in the UK, even though it was vegetarian. From there, Greens has gone from strength to strength, increasing from 28 to 48 covers in 2005 and, after the purchase of the dress shop next door, it’s now a massive 90 covers…and still packed.

    I have found that to produce the best possible food you also need the freshest ingredients. In all my years of cooking professionally I haven’t come across anything that beats my Sub-Zero Fridge/Freezer unit in terms of size, configuration and technical superiority.  It is an invaluable tool for me because of the superior refrigeration system unique to Sub-Zero.  With other brands there is an exchange of air between the fridge and freezer, meaning humidity levels are low, which can dry out food.  My Sub-Zero model keeps the air in each compartment separate, preserving all food, especially fruit and vegetables, for longer. My Wolf Gas Range (R486G) is one of the most precise instruments in my kitchen.  The six separate burners can go from the lowest flame for simmering and melting to a strong searing heat for the utmost control. The griddle gives me the flexibility to cook directly on the temperature control surface which is great for breakfasts, pancakes and even scallops and delicate white fish. The new showroom with everything on show makes me want to move home so that I can create a new, even better kitchen. Antony is a huge fan of Sub-Zero and Wolf and insists on cooking and cooling with the brands in both his UK and Spanish homes.
"I’ve been using Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances at home for many years, I’m deeply impressed."

    Wolf makes the best kitchen kit.  I truly believe this.  I’ve been making chocolate truffles for years and never has it been easier than on my electric hob.  I am no longer prey to the risk of chocolate burning and can make hundreds every weekend if I want.  Making custard is a total delight rather than the normal, slightly hair-raising experience. My Sub-Zero crisper keeps fruits and vegetables fresh for about a week longer than in my old fridge.  It’s hugely impressive and also incredibly beautiful.  My Sub-Zero freezer allows me to see exactly what I’ve got stored away so that I can always whip something out if I suddenly have people coming over.  The ice-machine is made for throwing parties...we can’t wait to have our first one. The new Wolf showroom is not only dead slinky but provides an informal, cosy place to cook for people using Wolf’s incredibly sexy appliances.  There is no showroom that I would rather cook in.
"I adore my Sub-Zero fridge/freezer.  It looks like a spaceship in my kitchen, quite the sexiest thing I’ve ever owned.  Even my husband is obsessed with it, which is a real turnaround! With my Wolf ovens he may even be cooking for me next."

For example,  Riccardo’s take on spaghetti carbonara combines pecorino cheese, pancetta, and an egg poached at a low temperature for an hour – a tip picked up in Japan – which, when mixed together by the diner, makes a rich yet cream-free sauce.

    Riccardo has chosen Sub-Zero & Wolf appliances for his home kitchen and selected the state-of-the-art kitchen equipment to complement a gastronomic vision that is delivered with techniques reminiscent of a master craftsman. I first discovered Sub-Zero & Wolf because I was living across from their stunning showroom on the Brompton Road.  I am not a billionaire, but Wolf’s ovens and stoves are so worth the money as they bring the passion back to cooking. They are truly for people that love to cook as the control they allow is amazing and second to none.

  • Ulrika Jonsson

    Ulrika Jonsson

    Ulrika Jonsson is a Swedish born television presenter who first became famous as a weather presenter.

    Together with her husband Brian Monet, she has recently moved into a new family home in South Oxfordshire which sports a state of the art Sub Zero & Wolf kitchen! Ulrika is a keen gardener and has been an avid cook since she was 10 years old.

    When asked about her relationship with food Ulrika says that her love of cooking was established when she moved to England in 1979.  “My stepfather taught me all the foundations and I quickly developed a love for Italian and French food.  Instead of going out at weekends when I was a teenager, I was at home baking and creating a new recipe every weekend.” She says there’s nothing quite as depressing as an empty fridge!

    Aged 17 Ulrika spent a month in France on a cookery course and in her late 20s visited Italy to do the same.  In 1999 she took part in the first ever Celebrity MasterChef alongside Rick Wakeman and Jenny Agutter with judges Raymond Blanc and a rookie Jamie Oliver.

    The family built a new house, and the most important room in the house is the kitchen. For Ulrika and her family, the one area of no compromise was the kitchen appliances.

    Ulrika on Wolf:

    “Wolf not only makes the most stylish hobs and cookers, they work magic! If you’re serious about cooking, you cannot help but be seduced by the solidity and the functionality.  There’s nothing better on the market.”

    Ulrika on Sub-Zero:

    “As for refrigeration, I have loved Sub-Zero for years.  Living in the country, it’s crucial for me to have a fridge and freezer which keeps food fresh for as long as possible.  Knowing Sub-Zero technology will prevent my food from deteriorating is unbeatable.”

    “It’s funny, as I thought I knew who made the best fridges but in reality the products we had been looking at aren’t even close to Sub-Zero, who really do manufacture a high-end product with great design and well thought out engineering. Most importantly, you can tell a lot of consideration has gone into the consumer, as it’s just so easy to use. From the integral ice and water dispenser, to the way the internal drawers open and close it’s all just…perfect.

    During my racing career I have always admired the designers and engineers who get the very best out of their cars. It’s clear to see that the same dedication and passion runs through the Sub-Zero team. I never thought I would be so excited about a fridge!”

    Do you do much cooking, or does Danielle create most of the meals?

    I would say I’m the secondary cook but I enjoy cooking, I find it quite relaxing. I wouldn’t claim to be particularly good but I conjure up the odd thing.

    How much time as a family do you tend to spend in the kitchen?

    Quite a lot, I think we’re lucky to have a big kitchen so as a family I think we spend quite a lot of time here.

    As an ambassador for Sub-Zero & Wolf and one of England’s best-loved footballers, how important is nutrition to you?

    We’ve got a greater understanding of nutrition now. Certainly didn’t when I played football, we’d eat crazy stuff just before a game! Now, I think we’re a little more conscious of eating properly. I’m interested in nutrition and getting the right things inside me.

    Have you noticed that your food lasts longer in your Sub-Zero?

    Absolutely, it’s a great piece of kit, I love that fridge. The glass front means you can see what’s in there and it’s huge – when it’s full even my four have trouble emptying it! Everyone loves it, they say “wow!”

    What’s the favourite part of your kitchen and why?

    My wine storage, because wine is bit of a passion of mine.

    Have your appliances met your expectations?

    They’re amazing, and people that are more expert cooks are always impressed when they see them!

    How do they compare to what you’re used to? Can you feel the difference in terms of quality engineering and manufacturing?

    Not only are they aesthetically lovely, they are beautifully made. They just feel solid and strong; you can tell when things are brilliantly manufactured, and they are.
