Mary Berry Everyday

Feeding The Family

Series 1 - Episode 5 Feeding The Family



A sunlit summer lawn. Kids running in and out of a sprinkler. A family game of croquet. The backdrop for this week’s edition looks as coolly idyllic as a Boden advert, while Mary produces dishes for her family that add to the general, English loveliness.

The recipes themselves look great, particularly a sort of melanzane/lasagne hybrid, but even if you don’t attempt them there are tips along the way to make a mental note of.

Pre-soaking your sheets of pasta, for instance, or heating the milk first before adding it to a white sauce. And one very Mary idea: add honey to strips of chicken you’re frying and they’ll brown quicker and not be overcooked. Cunning.


Mary shares some inspirational ideas to make fabulous family meals. Plus, she shows her granddaughter how to make her own goat's cheese.
