BBC cooking up stately new show for baking star Mary Berry
The BBC has announced that it will be sticking to its favourite recipe of Mary Berry, stately homes and food history for a new series - the first the baker has signed up to since The Great British Bake Off ended its run.
Although the BBC recently lost the hit programme to Channel 4, its star Berry chose not to follow and will now host a new show for BBC One that includes some elements of the cake contest.
Mary Berry's Secrets From Britain's Great Houses will keep the stately home setting of the Bake Off, visiting a different residence each time to find out about the culinary traditions within its walls.
Echoing the popular food history section of her former series, Berry will create her own recipes inspired by each home's cooking past.
