Following her exit from The Great British Bake Off, Mary Berry has a new gig that will see her exploring various stately homes in the UK and revealing their secrets through interviews with present-day custodians and their staff.

Fittingly, food will remain a central theme of the BBC1 series, tentatively titled Mary Berry’s Secrets From Britain’s Great Houses. Inspired by the houses’ rich culinary histories, Berry will be producing her own recipes and celebrating the heritage and legacy of these extraordinary houses with all those she has met.

“This series will be a real treat for BBC1 viewers to go behind the scenes with Mary Berry and explore Britain’s great houses through her love of cooking,” said Charlotte Moore, director of content for the UK pubcaster, in a statement. Moore commissioned the 6×30-minute series, along with Tom McDonald, head of commissioning, specialist factual and natural history.

The series is produced by Shine TV, with Tanya Shaw and Lorna-Dawn Creanor on board as executive producers.

Berry announced her departure from Bake Off in September following news of the culinary competition series’ move from BBC to Channel 4Show hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins also quit the show ahead the move. Paul Hollywood, however, said he will continue on as a Bake Off judge when the new season on C4.
