Mary Berry Cook and Share Season 1 Episode 02 Description
Mary travels to the beautiful city of Bristol. Her connection to the city is extensive: it was here that she had her first job and where her son William studied at university, and it’s currently home to her granddaughter Grace.
The largest city in the south west of England, Bristol is a vibrant, multicultural town with a strong community spirit. From the buzzing, recently developed harbor front to the flourishing independent restaurants, Mary is ready to rediscover the city she knew of old.
First stop is a sunrise hot air balloon display. Mary used to watch them float silently above the city, but now she prepares to see then up close. Next, a Michelin-starred restaurant embracing the street art so synonymous with Bristol. Mary is intrigued by the 20-course tasting menu, but having been inspired by the creativity of Bristol and its favorite son Banksy, will she try her hand at spray painting?
New experiences abound, but there’s one place special from Mary’s past she always visits when in Bristol – her beloved late son William’s memorial plaque, a tribute from his university tutor commemorating his life and time spent studying in the city.
Mary will be cooking up her own mouthwatering recipes. Her Tuscan chicken and her pear and blueberry galette are firm family favorites. There’s also shakshuka, perfect for sharing and served with deliciously simple garlic parsley flatbreads, cooked overlooking the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Plus a dish bursting with flavor: her prawn and courgette stir-fry.
