In the first programme, Mary draws on inspiration from some of her earliest and fondest memories from her childhood holidays and regular trips to the British seaside. To start, Mary prepares some delicious goat’s cheese and shallot tarts with a different, but delectable, walnut pastry – perfect for a picnic hamper or day out at the sea. To follow, a family favourite – her right royal crab and cod fishcakes with tomato salsa, followed by a special dinner party classic of sea bass with brown shrimp and caper sauce.
As well as cooking her seaside favourites, Mary visits the Botany Bay on the Kent coast, where she indulges in one her favourite seaside passions, prawning, before cooking up a new dish of seafood linguini that she’s really come to adore. Finally, Mary visits an ice cream parlour in Broadstairs that has hardly changed since she was a child. This inspires her to create her favourite ice cream treat – a knickerbocker glory that’s both easy to make and guaranteed to have everyone asking for more.
