BBC Two commissions new cooking series from Dame Mary Berry

Mary Berry: Love To Cook is a six-part, half-hour series which sees Berry visit fellow foodies to hear their stories, aiming to ignite the same passion for producing and cooking food in viewers.

Berry will also share her favourite, flavourful dishes for beginners or experts, a small budget or a big crowd, using primarily UK produce.

BBC Books will publish the accompanying book to the series.

10 things you might not know about The Great British Bake Off

Each series sees twelve amateur bakers attempt to out-bake their opponents and impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, with encouragement (/harassment) from the comedians presenting, currently Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas.

With one of the highest average audiences of any programme in the UK (in 2016, nine of the top ten most-watched programmes of the year were episodes of the show), Bake Off has become a Great British institution.

The six-part series will see Berry show viewers easy to follow recipes so they can create the ultimate comfort foods from their homes.

Berry travels the UK and goes abroad, inspired by the people she meets and the food she tastes, giving viewers simple dishes to cook that will brighten their day.

Commissioned by Sidney Street, the series finished filming in January 2020 and a book of the same name will be published by BBC Books.
