Goodwood to feature in Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets

The rich culinary history of Goodwood will be explored in new BBC One programme Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets

In the programme, being broadcast in December, Mary will meet custodians, staff and farm workers from the estate, unearthing secrets away from the well-trodden tourist path. Mary will then create her own scrumptious dish that celebrates the heritage and legacy of this extraordinary home.

Susan, Duchess of Richmond and Gordon and mother to the current Duke, plays a central role in the programme. She was one of the Soil Association’s earliest members and ran her kitchen garden on organic principles, passing this passion on to her family. As a trailblazer of the organic movement and champion of animal welfare, she has been instrumental in transforming Goodwood into a model of progressive farming.

Mary spent time with The Duchess, collecting eggs from her hens and discussing the history of food and farming at Goodwood and she will also explore Goodwood Home Farm with farmer Tim Hassell.

A highlight of the programme sees the Duke takes Mary for a lap around the circuit in his grandfather’s iconic AC 16/18.

The Duke of Richmond and Gordon says: “We’re very proud of our farming heritage at Goodwood; the farm was here long before any of our big events and it has inspired our food philosophy across all of our restaurants. It was an absolute pleasure to host Mary and have her shine a light on our food story.”

The Goodwood episode of Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets will air on BBC One on December 13, 2017.
