Not many people would dare voice even the slightest criticism about food cooked by Michel Roux Jr, but the grande dame of baking, Mary Berry, does tonight. She — very politely and with a twinkle in her eye — suggests the crème pâtissière in his fruit barquettes would be improved with the addition of just a little vanilla. Then, with a smile and a slightly saucy wink, she disagrees with him that butter is better than baking spread in a Victoria sponge.
Fans of The Great British Bake Off will love this edition of the show, not just because it’s focusing on cakes, pastries and breads but because, when Berry’s baking on telly, all seems right with the world.
Chef Michel Roux Jr and drinks expert Kate Goodman are joined by The Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry, and together they create the perfect afternoon tea. Food writer William Sitwell sings the praises of sliced white bread, and chef and broadcaster Rachel Khoo celebrates the patisserie in Paris.
