Annabel, or Belles as she is usually referred to, is Dame Mary Berry’s only daughter.
She has spent her whole life in the food world, starting at the tender age of 17, making her grandmother’s amazing favourite salad dressing. From her mum’s kitchen, Belles bottled and labelled up her salad dressing, got into her VW campervan and toured the country, selling at 30 agricultural shows a year for seven years! This then led to a deal with Waitrose and then the salad dressing, chutneys and sauces went on to sell in all major supermarkets, under The Mary Berry & Daughter range.

In 2010, Belles started The Great Taste Company, which has the exclusive food licence rights for the Mary Berry brand. She has created a range of cakes and puddings from her mum’s recipes with manufacturing partners, which now sell in all major supermarkets.
