It would seem that celebrated author, columnist, teacher and broadcaster, Mary Berry CBE, is flavour of the month in more ways than one. Bookshops have a number of her latest books on display, and another title is scheduled for release two days before the Malvern Autumn Show. And she is coming to Malvern - top of the bill and special guest on the Saturday (28th September).
Best known most recently for her part in the TV baking revival, and for her practical and healthy recipes containing lots of fresh ingredients, Mary is a household name, having hosted seven cookery series for Thames Television, and several others since. She is known for her views on family food for healthy living, so was the perfect choice of guest for the popular ‘Good Life Pavilion’. Said Sharon Gilbert, Communications Manager for the Three Counties Showground: “Home-produced food is one of the main themes of our Autumn event, particularly the grow your own lifestyle, which is still very much in vogue.”

Although she will be sharing her top tips for delicious family cooking, Mary will also be talking about her passion for her own lovely garden, on stage with television gardener Joe Swift. Check your Show Guide on arrival for details. The ‘Good Life Pavilion’ is just one of a whole host of features planned for the Show. Indeed, the Malvern Autumn Show is now renowned as a celebration of country life, food and nostalgia on account of its charming mix of flowers, fruit and vegetables, exquisite crafts, local food with taste, and quality shopping. The Show organisers are anticipating a big crowd on both Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th.
The Pavilion is also home to five lovingly designed edible gardens this year, and there’s a brand new, complementary Plant Fair, for those with a real passion for unusual species grown by small specialist nurseries. The whole area is dedicated to promoting the secrets of living a happy, healthy life, beginning with the benefits of sowing, growing and eating produce from your own ‘back yard’ – even if that back yard is just a small collection of patio pots. The Show is only five weeks away - don't forget to book your tickets!
