What is Mary Berry cooking up now?
Bake-off star will go back to her roots after being given a second series in 10 days
PENN resident and national treasure Mary Berry has been given a second BBC show in just 10 days.
BBC Two has commissioned a six-episode series titled Mary Berry Everyday, where she will be celebrating the food and ingredients she uses most, proving you do not need an exotic larder to be able to cook well.
The octogenarian will explore the dishes that have been the cornerstone of her cooking for six decades and will strive to show how you can easily turn your everyday cooking into something more special, using her shortcuts and tips.
Mary will be travelling to her mother’s childhood home in Scotland to experience the fine venison, salmon and of course Scotch whiskeys, before donning an apiarist’s suit to collect honey from bees.
She will also trace the lineage of the great British pie and learn to milk goats and make her own goat’s cheese.
The news comes just ten days after Mary was awarded a brand new BBC series, Mary Ber- ry’s Secrets from Britain’s Great Houses.
The accompanying cookbook will be release by BBC Books in January 2017.
Mary Berry is set to make a star appearance at the Gerrards Cross Bookshop, Packhorse Road, on Sunday.
She will be signing copies of her new book, Family Sunday Lunches, and celebrating the 10th birthday of the shop, which is itself an institution.
In her new book Mary delves into one of the great British traditions – the Sunday lunch.
The shop advises that Mary will only be signing copies of books purchased from the Chorleywood and Gerrards Cross Bookshops on the day.
She will be there from 12.45pm to 1.45pm.
