The best of Mary Berry

Tonight, the Great British Bake Off is making its Channel 4 debut, and there’s going to be one vital ingredient missing – the mighty Mary Berry.

We love Mary. From her knowing glances at the camera to her incredible sense of style, we wouldn’t mind if she’d adopt us – especially because we know we’d be very well fed.

Mary’s recipes, you see, are fool-proof. They just work. We’ve yet to try a Berry creation that hasn’t been perfect.

From beautiful bakes to family-friendly roasts, the queen of bakes does not fail.

Prue Leith has incredibly large shoes to fill.

In celebration of the work of Mary, we’ve compiled a Pinterest board of her best work. Give it a go as you watch the show tonight.
