Mary Berry book signing dates announced

Mary Berry is emerging from the drama surrounding the "The Great British Bake Off" to go on a month-long tour of book signings.

GBBO's prospective move to Channel 4, following an impasse in rights negotiations between the BBC and Love Productions, lead both Berry and the show's two co-presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins to announce their departures from the show last month.

At the time, Berry said in a statement: "My decision to stay with the BBC is out of loyalty to them, as they have nurtured me, and the show, that was a unique and brilliant format from day one. I am just sad for the audience who may not be ready for change, I hope they understand my decision."

Berry will be signing copies of her book Family Sunday Lunches (Headline) at various locations around the UK, beginning in Woking at the end of October. She will be at the RHS Garden Wisley Plant Centre on Saturday 29th October (11am); at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham NEC on 26th November (11.15am); and, on 27th November, at both Chorleywood Bookshop (11am) and Gerrards Cross Bookshop (12.45pm).

The book, released in September, brings the Sunday roast "right up to date", shaing Berry's 150 "foolproof" recipes for springtime starters, autumnal fruit pies, slow-cooked casseroles and light summer salads, with winter curries, garden buffets, vegetarian meals and desserts included too. 

Berry knocked Joe Wicks off the top spot of Nielsen's book chart in March for her TV-tie in Foolproof Cooking (BBC).
