Mary Berry's Foolproof Cooking - Episode 5

Mary shares her foolproof recipes for those days when you are simply run off your feet. Her mantra is ‘get organised, and try to do things ahead’ and the dishes she prepares in this episode are ones you can get together in no time. Tomato soup made from ingredients from the store cupboard and express bacon and pesto pasta are perfect examples of dishes that take under 20 minutes to rustle up. When Mary feels the need to unwind there is one recipe that is perfect for slowing things down – her salmon, fennel and pea risotto.


After visiting Wiltshire and meeting Sonia, who runs a vegbox scheme, Mary is inspired to create a delicious roasted cauliflower dish, which is also the perfect accompaniment to her stuffed chicken thighs. Finally, Mary makes the perfect little quick pud – passion fruit pots with sweet lemon crisps.
