Mary Berry fronts new BBC cooking show

June 21, 2022

Dame Mary Berry is returning to the BBC with Mary Berry Cook And Share, a brand new series celebrating what drives her lifelong passion of cooking.

Commissioned from Sidney Street, part of BanijayUK, the new BBC Two and iPlayer series will be guided by the nation’s much loved cook as she shows audiences how to whip up recipes that are perfect to share, be it at big gatherings, with small groups or even something special for two.

Berry will travel to some of her favourite locations across the UK to meet others who come together over food, as part of family celebrations, to bring communities and generations together, and as the pinnacle of summer festivals and events.

Berry commented: “Sharing recipes is always an utter joy for me and this series is the ultimate guide, whether you are cooking for a crowd or just for two. I’m loving visiting some spectacular parts of the country at extraordinary events, gatherings and beautiful locations for this new series. I have always believed there is no better way to spend time with family and friends than over fresh home cooked food – and now more than ever that feels so important.”

Co-executive producer and MD of Sidney Street, Karen Ross, added: “We are so excited to be filming Mary doing what she does best! Inspiring the country to cook from scratch, sharing both her delicious recipes and incredible knowledge. This delightful series will please anyone wanting to get into the kitchen, from the most experienced to a whole new generation of home cooks.”

Ricky Cooper, Commissioning Editor, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment for the BBC, said: “Mary has spent her life sharing her knowledge, her passion and of course her recipes with audiences all over the UK and beyond. So we’re delighted she’s returning to the BBC to share her love of cooking – and the impact it has on our lives and communities – in what promises to be a truly spectacular series.”

Across six episodes, Berry will inspire and delight with her sharing recipes.
