Food writer and TV presenter Mary Berry is back on the small screen next month, with a BBC series focused on Easter fare.
In the two-part show, which will air in BBC2 at a date and time to be confirmed, ‘Great British Bake Off’ judge Mary will explore the roots of her faith through the medium for which she is best known: food.
Mary shares her favourite Easter recipes, including hot cross buns, Simnel cake and roast lamb, and learns how every Christian community and culture – from Russians to Filipinos to Caribbeans to Italians and Poles – has its own way of commemorating and celebrating the holiest time in the Christian calendar through food.
In episode one of ‘Mary Berry’s Easter Feast’, Mary discovers the traditions followed by diverse British families and communities during Lent and Good Friday, and the food that brings them together, as they each prepare for the Easter celebration.
These families will join Mary for her Easter feast in the next episode.
