In the series finale, Mary cooks dishes inspired by her home and family. No matter how busy Mary is, her top priority is to have the family round for a meal and three generations of Mary’s family visit her in the kitchen and get involved with the cooking.
To start, a delicious Malay fried rice. It’s Mary’s husband Paul’s favourite dish and bursting with flavour, it never fails to be a real crowd pleaser. One of Mary’s joys in life is cooking with her grandchildren and it’s no surprise that Mary’s next dish, a delicious chicken pasta bake, has become one of their favourites! Next, the family come together to enjoy a delicious harrisa spiced lamb casserole – a perfect alternative to a Sunday roast.
Then it’s back to the kitchen where Mary’s granddaughters are on hand to help make three different- flavoured scrumptious biscuits, all made from the same dough. To finish, Mary makes her easy lemon meringue pie – the perfect desert for a family gathering; simple to make but guaranteed to have them coming back for seconds.
In this delightful six part series, the nation’s best-loved home cook draws on her wealth of cookery know-how to share a selection of her absolute favourite recipes. Each week Mary draws inspiration from a favourite place, one where she loves to spend time, and cooks up tried and tested crowd pleasers as well as a bounty of new dishes that are easy to make, yet guaranteed to impress all your family and friends.
Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites Ep.6 dishes:
1. Chicken pasta bake (Saturday night pasta)
A wonderfully comforting dish, this can be made ahead and will go down really well with the family. It is certainly my grandchildren’s favourite!
2. Mini three-way biscuits
These are my favourite biscuits to make with my grandchildren – three classic biscuit flavours from just one batch of dough.
