Mary Berry has announced the launch of a brand new show for the BBC, which will see her share her culinary knowledge to help novice cooks make delicious meals for their loved ones.
It’s been four years since Mary, 86, left The Great British Bake Off, having previously judged the competition alongside Paul Hollywood, 55.
However, the appetite for Mary from TV audiences has never waned, with the food writer and chef set to embark on a new show titled Mary Berry’s Fantastic Feasts.
In the three-part series, Mary will meet members of the public who don’t have much experience in the kitchen but want to serve up dishes that will impress their friends, family, colleagues and loved ones.
Mary will swoop to the rescue, teaching them how to make dishes that are not only achievable for people who aren’t naturally drawn to the kitchen, but also taste delicious.
The TV presenter expressed her excitement over the series, emphasising that teaching is ‘in my DNA’.
‘I can’t wait to share my knowledge and encourage the novice cooks – and with my celebrity sidekicks by my side we will make it fun all the way!’
Each episode will focus on a different celebration, where the cooks involved in the show are invited along to Mary’s home to explain to her what they want to cook up for their chosen special someone.
They will also be joined by two celebrity helpers, who will be on hand to help alongside Mary every step of the way.
As Mary sets about helping her pupils, she will provide them with invaluable critique and step-by-step instructions that they can follow, which should come in especially handy when trying to wrap their heads around tricky techniques.
On the day of their Fantastic Feast, the participants of the show will receive help from Mary and the celebs as they make their dream meal a reality.
Catherine Catton, head of commissioning for popular factual and factual entertainment at the BBC, said that the broadcaster is ‘very excited to have Mary back on our screens’, adding that they are ‘looking forward to seeing her transform novice cooks and helping them create incredible celebratory feasts for their loved ones’.
Emily Hudd, managing director of Rumpus Media, the company making the show, added: ‘Mary’s back to sprinkle her magic over some very special get-togethers with recipes that will inspire everyone to get into the kitchen and celebrate!’
Earlier this year, it was reported that Mary’s show Best Home Cook, also on the BBC, was facing the axe after just two series.
In May, a BBC spokesperson said that no decision had been formally been made.
However, it was understood that the non-celebrity version would likely be dropped.
