How well known is James Martin in the US?

Newbie and first question....

I have to admit to being a bit of a fan of his (avatar is from his new iPhone/iPad app) and I'm in Scotland - Just wondered how well known he is elsewhere in the world, particularly the US?

Interesting! He's become a hell of a lot more popular in the UK than either Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsey.

Welcome to DC, and tell us about him!
