Mary Berry on family arguments over food and drink, and her fondness for Reverend Richard Coles

Mary Berry makes cooking seem so straightforward and soothing. The kitchen in her new series, the aptly named Love To Cook, is softly lit and apparently stress-free. “Oh, it’s my relaxation,” says Bath-born Berry, 86, of whipping up dinner.

Does any house not have a Mary Berry cookbook on a shelf somewhere? “I don’t find the kitchen stressful because I do know what I’m doing,” she says. “And I do wash up as I go along.”
