Mary Berry's Absolute Favourites Synopsis

In this official tie-in to Mary's gorgeous new six-part BBC Two TV series, Mary reveals the secrets of her very favourite dishes. Featuring all the foolproof recipes from the show, Mary introduces you to her favourite dishes using produce from the farmers' market, the herb garden, the seaside, the countryside and more. This all-new collection of 100 fuss-free, delicious recipes offers yet more inspirational ideas that anyone can try. From tempting Mini Beef Wellingtons, perfect for a party, to her foolproof Saturday Night Pasta, Mary's no-nonsense advice means cooking for friends and family has never been simpler. And of course, there are plenty of indulgent cakes and teatime treats for those with a sweet tooth. The book also contains Mary's favourite Christmas recipes, and will tie-in to the two 30 minute Mary Berry Favourites Christmas specials.

The Good Book Guide Review

Undaunted by age (she is now eighty), Mary Berry has just recorded a new television series for which this is the accompanying book. Distilled from a lifetime of cooking, she picks her hundred favourite dishes, with an emphasis on preparing ahead to ensure relaxed entertaining. There are stunning canapés – mini beef Wellingtons, and simple starters – homemade gravadlax or smoked trout tians. Main dishes are beef pie with filo crust, venison with cherry and wine sauce, spatchcock poussins with orange sage and ginger, sea bass fillets with brown shrimp and caper sauce, seafood linguine with fresh tomato sauce, or paella, along with vegetable dishes and salads. Hot and cold puddings include winter apple and blackberry crumble tart and delicate apricot frangipane tart and the book ends with teatime treats, everything mouth-wateringly photographed. It is definitely one of Mary Berry’s best and most useful collections – I have not found a single recipe that I do not want to try!
