MARY MCCARTNEY SERVES IT UP - A NEW DISCOVERY+ COOKING SERIES
Mary McCartney invites audiences into her London kitchen as she prepares delicious, accessible, and picture perfect meals with her talented friends on the discovery+ series Mary McCartney Serves It Up. In each of the six half-hour episodes, Mary shares her sincere love of cooking and her favourite recipes and the stories behind them, showcasing her accessible vegetarian food philosophy for all to enjoy. In each episode, Mary is joined by some talented and well known friends, at home and over video conference, to celebrate food and friendship with transatlantic cook-alongs, taste-tests, cocktail classes and fun food Q&As. From easy dinners to comforting eats, moreish main meals and delicious desserts, Mary proves that every day and every occasion can be deliciously meat free.
“I’m honored to be launching my new show on Discovery’s amazing new streaming service. With the help of a few friends, I want to show that meat free eating can be varied, delicious and accessible to everyone,” said Mary McCartney. “The recipes are simple, easy and rewarding. I can’t wait for you to be able to join me and my super talented guests for food and fun.”
Every episode includes good food and great conversation, from Maple Vodka Grilled Peaches with Kate Hudson, Meatless Marinara Sub Sandwiches with Mark Ronson, and Deluxe Hash Brown Skillet piled high with spicy beans and delicious fixings for brunch with Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie. But no brunch is complete without a cocktail, so the ladies show Mary their special take on a spritzer. Plus, Liv Tyler is Mary’s official nachos taste tester, and Dave Grohl teaches Mary the secret to his legendary lasagna, while she makes Smokey Dogs and a chef’s salad with homemade dressing to round out the meal. Mary also arranges a food delivery for a virtual party with Gayle King, who famously doesn’t cook, filled with Sticky Crispy Cauliflower Bites, Pea & Mint Dip, and Roasted Tomato & Butterbean Toasts. Together they mix up a delicious mocktail, to toast to their friendship and to share a delicious meal.
During the filming of Serves It Up all unused food was sent to City Harvest, a London based charity Mary supports, where nutritious surplus food is provided to organisations that provide meals to vulnerable people including homeless shelters, children’s programmes and refuges for women experiencing domestic violence.
