There are few TV shows that instantly make you feel good and comforted, but Mary Berry never fails to put viewers at ease. The chef has become a national treasure, cooking on our screens for years now. From her days judging alongside Paul Hollywood on the Great British Bake Off to starring solo in shows such as Mary Berry Everyday, the presenter will be back on the BBC this year for a new cooking programme called Love To Cook.
In this show, Mary seeks out other people to share their own passions and stories. Of course, she will be sharing some of her favourite recipes and inspiring the nation to love cooking just as much as she does, as well as encouraging us all to grow and produce our own food.
The official BBC synopsis of the six-part series reads: ‘Mary shares her passion through some exceptional dishes, from those that will inspire beginners, or put budget at their heart without sacrificing flavour, to recipes that will please a hungry crowd.
‘In doing so, she celebrates heartwarming classics that are perfect to nurture those around you, and of course, recipes that focus on what we love to grow as a nation, be it from an allotment or an industrious window box. No one, be they a novice or a seasoned cook, will be able to resist Mary’s commitment to teaching and her lifelong joy of cooking.’
Mary Berry described Love To Cook as ‘me in a nutshell’, so we can’t wait to see what the baking legend rustles up for us this time.
The Best Home Cook judge added: ‘My cooking is all about sharing what I know and love, teaching and inspiring everyone to enjoy cooking as much as I do. Over the past year many have had unexpected time on their hands at home and have found a love of cooking to be comforting and healing in very difficult times.
‘Love To Cook is all about celebrating just that, with wonderful characters, as I travel the British Isles in a quest to meet and share in our passion for food.’
We can’t wait to see Mary Berry back in her element! Love To Cook is due to air later this year on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
