The BBC has released details of Mary Berry's next series, ‘Mary Berry's Secrets From Britain's Great Houses', her first show since leaving the Great British Bake Off.
Speaking at the Broadcast Commissioning Forum today (4 November), Charlotte Moore, director of content at the BBC, announced food writer and presenter Berry's new show for BBC One.
In the new, yet-to-be-filmed series Berry will explore the food produced in Britain's stately homes, revealing the "upstairs" and "downstairs" life of the properties, meeting the present-day custodians and their staff as she visits the gardens, kitchens and private rooms.
She will also be producing her own recipes to celebrate the heritage and legacy of the houses and the people she has met.
Berry said: "I am so excited to be doing this new series with the BBC - I have always had an enquiring mind so I know I will be inspired by the great houses we visit."
Charlotte Moore, director of content at the BBC, said: "This series will be a real treat for BBC One viewers to go behind the scenes with Mary Berry and explore Britain's great houses through her love of cooking."
Tanya Shaw, managing director of Shine TV, the production company also behind MasterChef, added: "Following the success of Mary Berry's Easter Feast last year, we are delighted to be working with Mary on this exciting new series. I can't think of anyone more perfect to tell the stories of these great households and to bring us such a unique insight into Britain's rich culinary past."
