Mary Berry – Love to Cook: Episode 4 (S1EP4 BBC Two Thurs 2 Dec 2021)



For Mary, cooking is so much more than assembling ingredients; it’s a way of showing her family and friends that she cares.

Mary teams up with her daughter Annabel as they head to Carmarthen Bay to meet forager Craig Evans. Armed with his vast knowledge of edible plants, they indulge in their two loves – the great outdoors and cooking.

Mary then travels to Cumbria to meet Carlisle-born Harrison, whose friends helped him to turn his life around and discover solace through the great outdoors. Known as the Fell Foodie, Harrison takes Mary for a walk, equipped with his trusty backpack to find an idyllic streamside spot. Here he roasts Mary a sea bass followed by a lemon and blueberry cake – all made from scratch on a tiny camp stove on the picturesque hillside.

Mary presents us with four recipes, all favourites of her family and friends. These include a roast fillet of beef with fresh horseradish, served with a magical platter of vegetables that can be cooked ahead, a colourful roasted pepper, beetroot and feta tart, and a scrumptious crusted salmon with samphire, served with a velvety lemon sauce.

Mary also shares some tips on how to spend less time in the kitchen and more time entertaining, with some of her favourite ideas on how to prep ahead.

Mary’s final recipe is a paradise chocolate cake, an indulgent dark chocolate sponge that’s dripping with chocolate icing and decorated with beautiful shards of white and dark chocolate.
