Recipe for Life: The Autobiography
By Berry, Mary        
Paperback - English

From Queen of Tarts to the nation's heart, Mary Berry shares her Recipe for Life. From the moment she came into the world--two weeks early, throwing her parents' lives into disarray--Mary has gracefully but firmly done things her own way. Born in 1935, in the city of Bath, Mary's childhood was a curious mix of idyllic picnics and ramblings, and alarming air raids; of a spirited and outdoorsy home life and a dreaded school existence. All nearly cut horribly short by an almost fatal bout of polio when she was 13, which isolated Mary in hospital, away from beloved family and friends for months. Recovery saw her turn to her one true passion--cookery. And so began a love affair that has--so far--spanned six remarkable decades; from demonstrating ovens in the early 1950s to producing glossy food magazines in the 1960s and 1970s, gradually becoming the country's most prolific and--many would say--best loved cookery writer. Until her emergence in the 21st century as a TV sensation and style icon on the Great British Bake Off. As a working mother, at the heart of a busy household, Mary became an expert at the art of juggling, even bringing her working life into her home with her Aga school. And there have been challenges, one terrible tragedy, and many joys along the way. In this touching, evocative, and fascinating memoir, we accompany Mary on her journey of nearly 80 years; a life lived to the full, with a wicked sense of fun and an eye for the absurd, it is the life of a delightfully traditional but thoroughly modern woman. Fans of The Great British Bake Off can't wait to get their hands on Mary Berry's Recipe for Life.
