Celebrity chef James Martin has been travelling on Virgin Trains this week, serving up treats from his new seasonal menu to surprised customers in the operator’s newly refurbished First Class Carriage.
The train operator’s new executive chef then put his catering skills back into action as he travelled from King’s Cross to Leeds.
On arrival in Leeds, Martin met suppliers whose food is featured on his recently launched First Class menu, which is currently being served on the east coast route.
Martin said: “It was great to hear from the local suppliers whose produce has gone into making the new Virgin Trains seasonal menu and to be able to share with them the great feedback we have had so far from customers.”
A new James Martin menu is being rolled out to Standard Class customers in autumn as part of Virgin Trains’ ongoing £40m investment in its fleet.
