‘John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen’ returning to ITV for series eight this Spring

‘John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen’ will return to ITV for an eighth series this Spring it has been confirmed.

The show, hosted by John Torode and Lisa Faulker, has been a huge ratings success for the channel. The new series will feature 10 episodes and follows the autumn and festive airings (series seven), which achieved the highest audience share since ‘John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen’ first launched in 2019.

Best known for their expertise creating delicious, original and family-favourite dishes that encompass cost effective and time saving hacks, the couple will continue to deliver more mouth-watering meals that pair perfectly with the imminent lighter evenings. 

The 10-part series is set to make a return to Saturday mornings this spring, with episodes for all you need to enjoy the perfect Easter gathering, and new themes such as ‘Long Weekend Lunching’, ‘Best of British’, ‘Brilliant Bakes’, ‘Go Green’, ‘Family Feasting’ and ‘Garden Party Pleasers’, will also showcase new kitchen must-haves and cooking methods to help prepare and produce the tasty fare.  

Viewers can expect a host of recipes from the deliciously simple ‘Carbonara’ style Lasagne, Fish Finger Katsu Tacos or Rhubarb and Custard Tart to the more decadent but doable – Burnt Basque Cheesecake, Roasted Leeks topped with Burrata or a warm Roast Chicken Salad with gorgeous greens. 

Torode said,We’ve tailor made some rather brilliant new recipes. There will be plenty of green, tasty, seasonal and healthy stuff, but we’ve also tried to introduce a few new ingredients here and there and gone a little bit off-piste too – definitely some new and outrageous things too in this series!”

Faulkner added, “There will be a lot more fresh and lighter options that are also very cost effective that we want viewers to explore with us, but we are just so happy to be back together doing this. We really do love it so much and welcoming new viewers each time. The whole thing is such a pleasure to do.”

‘John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen’ is produced by ITV Studios Daytime and will be sponsored by Waitrose. It will air on ITV1 and ITVX.
