Mary Berry’s Household Tips & Tricks is Mary Berry’s latest book, and you might be surprised to know the nation’s favourite baker, known for her judging role in Bake Off, is showing us that her skills extend well beyond the kitchen to the rest of the home.
Mary has written more than 70 cookbooks in her time, but her latest title, set for release on 5th October, offers fans something a little different. Mary Berry’s Household Tips & Tricks isn’t about soggy bottoms and Victoria sandwiches; this book will let readers in on Mary’s household secrets.
Think of it as a comprehensive guide to cleaning and home maintenance that will help turn any house into a home. What’s more, the illustrations are beautiful.
‘This book is a collection of skills I’ve learned for running a home. Gleaned from years of practical experience, along with all the hints that friends and family have imparted to me, I hope it will be a helping hand,’ she says.
The new book will be loved by fans of Mary who are missing her on this year’s Great British Bake Off.
