In tonight’s programme, Mary cooks up the best of her comforting home cooked dishes; those that pick you up and put a smile on your face. To start, Mary prepares a warming roasted butternut squash soup with indulgent cheese and Parma ham twists. Next, a foolproof mackerel pate with lime that couldn’t be simpler followed by a warming Mexican tortilla bake, perfect for a cosy evening at home with the family. Mary also visits a garlic farm on the Isle of Wight where she meets Colin Boswell, to learns about the pungent bulb and taste some of their varied garlic dishes. Afterwards, Mary returns to the kitchen to make a comforting chicken casserole with garlic and rosemary crushed potatoes. Finally, Mary prepares a delicious crème caramel to enjoy time and time again.
