Mary heads back to the city where she learnt to cook - Paris, a city that lives and breathes food. Mary makes some of her own irresistible dishes inspired by this wonderful city.

Mary returns to the city where she learned to cook – Paris! It is a place that lives and breathes food, and Mary wants to sample the very best of it. Where better to start than a fromagerie to buy cheese for her own version of a melting, crunchy croque monsieur.

Next, under the spire of the Eiffel Tower, Mary enjoys the perfect bistro lunch, all washed down with a drop of fine wine, before she heads to one of the city’s favourite creperies to finesse her technique - whipping up the classic lemon and sugar crepe.

Heading to one of Paris’s bakeries, Mary is shown the underground secrets of perfecting croissants and producing the masses of baguettes that are baked fresh every day. Inspired by the sweet pastries she spots in Parisian patisserie windows, Mary makes her own brioche and apple frangipane tart. This is served up alongside a succulent slow roast leg of lamb with ratatouille and an elegant starter of a crab and herb blinis.
