In Classic Mary Berry episode 1 2018, soothing and much-loved home comfort delights, from the very simple to the extremely decadent. Mary indulges her love of comfort food with homely recipes to warm the heart, including Eggs benedict florentine, fall-off-the-bone slow-cooked lamb shanks and deliciously rich chocolate truffle pots.
She invites Swedish fire-chef Niklas Esktedt to share the joys of caveman cooking with her, and finds herself outside by an open fire enjoying his inventive venison meatballs with blackened celeriac and mouthwatering Swedish donuts.
Classic Mary Berry ep.1 recipes:
Eggs Benedict Florentine
A classic dish, and such a treat to have when eating out. But (wrongfully) thought to be tricky to make at home – go on, have a go!
Chocolate truffle pots
Velvety smooth and chocolatey with a truffle on the top to give extra crunch – buy the truffle if you’re stuck for time.
Wild mushroom galettes
These make a wonderful first course or light lunch. Classic garlic mushrooms in a galette, similar to the old-fashioned vol-au-vent.
