Rating: 4 out of 5.

Paul March Hunnings is a lucky man. As Mary Berry’s husband he’s constantly on the receiving end of wonderful food. This time it’s “comfort food to warm the greyest of days” – butternut squash soup, smoked mackerel pâté, Mexican tortilla bake, chicken casserole and crème caramel. Not all at the same meal, obviously.

When Mary says something is “quick and simple”, she means it. There aren’t dozens of ingredients or any difficult cheffy techniques to master although turning out a crème caramel onto a plate requires a bit of skill and a lot of nerve. The result is almost as good as his mum’s, says Paul.
