Foolproof Cooking

Written by

Mary Berry


28 January 2016

Who’s the author? The lovely Mary Berry. National treasure, queen of baking and former much-loved judge on the BBC’s Great British Bake Off series.

What’s it about? Mary welcomes us back into her kitchen and shares her collection of foolproof recipes that are completely dependable. Foolproof Cooking also accompanies her BBC Two tie-in TV series.

Recipes we love: Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding, Cheese and Garlic Tear-and-Share Scones, Whole Sea Bass with Lime and Dill Butter, Chicken and Bacon Lattice Pie, Bubble and Squeak Potato Cakes and Cardamon Sponge with White Chocolate Icing.

Good book for: Anyone looking for a collection of dependable, delicious meals. From simple weekday dinners to bakes for weekend, these foolproof recipes will have you covered every time.

You’ll like it if: You enjoyed the Foolproof Cooking BBC Two TV series and are already a Mary Berry fan. This book, like her previous publications, doesn’t disappoint and is full of stress-free recipes that are still full of flavour. It’s one of those staple cookbooks that you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again for those failsafe favourites.
