Join these friends in their kitchen where they will teach you—in their delightfully brassy style—how to make Rabbit Paté, perfect turkey pilaf, and create the unusual and startling Penis Stew. Approaching each dish with vigor that wipes away any intimidation, Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson have proved themselves to be knowledgeable teachers who bring creativity and decadence to every meal.

Like most people I have Deliciously Ella and Hemsley and Hemsley on my shelf, bought in an effort to be more virtuous. I seldom cook from them. Then, I was in Oxfam the other day and I saw Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson looking regal on a motorbike and I thought that’s who I want to teach me how to cook! As Clarissa says: ‘Never trust a thin cook’. Some of the recipes are hair-raising, such as the penis stew, but others look more appetising and they are all delivered with a fag in one hand and plenty of humour.
