My DF, not at all well sad, saw MB and AWT on TV last night making a pasta bake for Mary's 92 year old mother. He doesn't know the name of the programme or the channel or the time it was on, but has asked if I'd make him the pasta bake. but i can't find a link.

He's not been eating properly recently due to illness and this is the first interest he's shown in food for ages. So I'd like to make it for him <<wonderful DD emoticom>>.

AIBU to think one of you MNers out there saw it and will share the details with me?smile

Is he sure it was Mary Berry's mother? This article says she died last year at the age of 105 and as MB is 77 her mother could be 92 but it's pushing it a bit.

Of course, if it was someone else's mother that doesn't help you much. sorry. sad

I can't help and google isn't helping... Does he remember any of the ingredients?

COuld you check the TV listings to ascertain what program it may have been?

(Am assuming they still do TV listings, haven't had a TV for years)

Greypuddle Thu 22-Nov-12 17:46:47 will give you listings but there doesn't seem anything on there that this could be.

I've tried googling but can't find anything. Bumping for you.

Any idea at all of the likely channel and likely timeframe?

I think Food Network have been showing repeats of Christmas Cooks during the day. Could it be that?

I'm guessing DF saw it maybe between 5pm and 9pm last night. He said there was long pasta in it and cheese. No idea about the channel.

Mary Berry made this on Saturday Kitchen once (AWT) used to present.

Sounds like Christmas cooks, it's definitely on food network atm and they are both definitely on it. smile

Ps could he have seen a rerun on a channel?

notagainshesaid Thu 22-Nov-12 18:48:17

DF doesn't see too well, so generally hasn't got a clue what channel he's watching. Is there anyone else who might have a 92 year old mother?! confused

Have you thought about contacting AWT? You never know...

Not sure about 92 year old mother but this is a Christmas cheesy pasta bake.

cashmere Thu 22-Nov-12 19:11:49

Final guess:-
Has long pasta
Old couple mentioned
Could Jamie O look like AWT?

It might not be the dish he meant but the pork and spinach lasagne someone linked to is a firm fave in this house abd everyone who I cook it for asks for the recipe then reports back that it is one of their staple dishes and that they cook it for guests who all ask for the recipe!
Tis bloody yummy

Is AWT on twitter?

Could it have been delia and her mum? Didn't see it but there's a bell ringing in my head somewheregrin

Mary Berry has been on repeats of some shows on the food network and I'd guess the programmes are around 15 years old,so it could well have been for her own mother at the time. She did a christmas pasta thing with AWT, and I'd guess that is what he saw. The programmes are being repeated all the time you could maybe record them and fast forward through to see, alot of hard work though.

You are all being so wonderful at trying to find this for me thanks

There are links on Food Network site to Christmas Cooks with Mary Berry.

She is with AWT. Haven't watched to see which one is pasta for Mary's mum - but if they are 15 yrs old that would fit with the ages.
