Mary Berry charts her life from her childhood in Bath during WW2, to London in the 1960s when she got her first big break. It was an ideal time for an ambitious young woman to spread her ideas and methods to a hungry population. In touching trips down memory lane, Mary reveals how a stern father, contracting polio and an inspirational teacher all influenced a career which has spanned over 50 years.
