MARY Berry has blasted celebrity food fads such as spreading avocado on toast.
The former Bake Off judge, 82, declared: “It’s very fashionable – but this isn’t one of the nicest things to do with them.”
She advised stars like Jeremy Clarkson – who tops the trendy dish off with poached egg: “Better to add them to a prawn cocktail or a little plate of smoked salmon or shrimps.
“I love prawn cocktail, it’s so retro! Do it in a glass, with a little gem lettuce leaf.
“People used to laugh at prawn cocktail because it felt dated, but it’s coming back.”
Waitrose has just unveiled an £8 chocolate Easter egg made in green and brown to look like the fruit.
Mary, who left Bake Off in 2016, also dismissed restaurant trends like swapping plates for slates.
She told Radio Times: “The way I cook might have changed, but I present my food like I used to.
“Serving food on slate tiles? Oh, no, that’s all very gimmicky.
