Mary Berry to host new cooking show on BBC Two
Queen of baking Mary Berry is set to return to BBC Two to front a new cooking series, the broadcaster has announced.
Hitting screens in the new year, her newly commissioned show called Mary Berry Everyday will explore some of the recipes that have formed the cornerstone of her cooking over her career.
Across six episodes the 81-year-old will travel to her mother's childhood home in Scotland to enjoy venison, salmon and whisky, and try her hand at beekeeping in search of honey.
She will also pursue the history of the great British pie and learn to milk a goat and make her own cheese, as she celebrates the food and ingredients she turns to most and shows an exotic larder is not needed to create delicious dishes.
The announcement comes after the firm TV favourite and judge on the hugely popular Great British Bake Off chose not to follow the show to Channel 4 when the programme rights were sold.
