The nation’s beloved cook, Dame Mary Berry, is back for a brand new series for BBC Two and iPlayer, Love To Cook, it was announced today (FRI).
Commissioned from Sidney Street, part of BanijayUK, the six-part, half-hour series is due to transmit later in the year.
Mary Berry loves to cook more than anything else and has been teaching Britain to make delicious dishes for over six decades. Now in Mary Berry: Love To Cook, Mary searches out kindred spirits with their own remarkable passions, shares their stories, and together with imparting her favourite recipes, inspires the country to fall in love with cooking, growing and producing food.
Across the six episodes 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. Mary celebrates heart-warming 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. The accompanying book to the series, of the same name, will be published by BBC Books.
Mary Berry said: "Love to Cook is me in a nutshell! 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."
