It’s that time of year again – that time where most of the British public become master bakers and food critics. Where it’s acceptable to judge other people’s culinary skills when you literally possess none yourself.
Mary Berry is a British cookery writer, TV cook and Aga expert. From an early age Mary knew she wanted to pursue a career in food having learnt the art of baking from her mother. At the young age of 18 she trained at the Bath College of Home Economics, followed by a Paris Cordon Bleu course, and finally qualified as a teacher.
