Mary Berry visits Enchanted Forest as part of her new Scottish Christmas cook show

National treasure Mary Berry visited The Enchanted Forest as part of her new Scottish Christmas cookery show.

The legendary cook paid a visit to the light show back in October to film for an episode in the festive series, with staff sworn to secrecy about her visit.

While at the event, Mary enjoyed a short walk around the forest, enjoying a cup of luxury hot chocolate and marshmallows by the fire to warm up afterwards.

Mary headed back to her mother’s homeland of Scotland for a Christmas special this December called Mary Berry’s Highland Christmas.

In the festive special, Mary Berry travels to the Highlands on a winter break, cooking up some truly indulgent dishes.

Some of the recipes are steeped in Scottish tradition, including a spectacular Cranachan wreath, indulgent cheese fondue and her classic Buche de Noel.  

‘Christmas in Scotland is the biggest treat, my mother and her family were Scottish so it is a special place for me,’ Mary said.

‘The festive holidays are all about sharing special times with friends and family and so what better way than cooking some of my favourite dishes with a traditional Scottish twist. 

‘Joined by special guests and surrounded by beautiful scenery, these are recipes which can be used all over the festive season and I can’t wait to share Mary’s Berry’s Christmas with BBC One viewers.’

Nela Popovic, executive director of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said: ‘Our team were delighted to welcome Mary Berry along to the event this year and there was a real buzz on site when the audience realised who it was that was walking along the path on the night as we’d all been sworn to secrecy by the film crew as the show hadn’t been announced yet by the BBC. 

‘Mary was an absolute delight to host, spoke to a number of the team about the charities in the community that the event supports, and commented that she thoroughly enjoyed her time at the show. We can’t wait to see the episode when it airs in December.’
