Episode 4: Mary Berry's Country House Secrets

Summary

In the final episode of the series, Mary visits Goodwood House, home to the March family, famous for their iconic horse racing and motoring events. She is taken on a thrilling lap of Goodwood motor circuit by Lord March, before attending one of his infamous dinner parties where 300 guests dine in style in splendid state rooms. Mary also learns more about the Estate's organic farm, before preparing a Coq-au-Vin and a four-tier cake for a cricket tea set in one of the oldest cricket clubs in the world. Last in the series.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Another lovely country home, another glorious banquet, this time a dinner for 300. Mary Berry is given a lift from the railway station to Goodwood House by Lord March in his splendid Rolls-Royce. Which rather beats a minicab with an overpowering novelty air freshener.

On arrival she makes a starter of smoked salmon, asparagus and quail eggs before wandering around the house, where she’s discovered by its art curator. “Hello Mary, are you enjoying our Canalettos?” he asks politely. Yes, Mary is enjoying the Canalettos.

It’s all terrifically polite (of course it is, Mary Berry is most gracious) but like the rest of the series – this is the last episode – it feels teeth-achingly obsequious.
