The Corporation has announced that Mary Berry Everyday will be screened on the channel next year, following her success on BBC2 with Mary Berry’s Foolproof Cooking and Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites.  

She has already revealed that she will be making Mary Berry’s Secrets from Britain’s Great Houses for BBC1. 

In Mary Berry Everyday the 81-year-old celebrates the food and ingredients she turns to most as she seeks to prove that you don’t need an exotic larder or a chef’s training to create delicious dishes every night of the week.

The BBC said in a statement: “Across six tantalising episodes and to celebrate some of the recipes that have formed the cornerstone of her cooking over six decades, Mary travels to her mother’s childhood home, Scotland, to enjoy their venison, salmon and whisky; dons a white suit to try her hand at bee-keeping in search of some delicious honey, a particular love of hers; pursues the history of the great British pie; and returns to her own childhood when she learns to milk a goat and make her own goat’s cheese.”

Recipes range from healthy and wholesome ideas, easy-to-make crowd pleasers and family classics.

BBC2 channel editor Patrick Holland said: “I am thrilled that Mary is returning to BBC2 to share her magic. Her everyday recipes are inspirational and delicious and her series will be a real treat for the audience.”
