Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson strive to create an experience in the kitchen. Published alongside their BBC program, this edition from the Two Fat Ladies takes you on a motorcycle-and-sidecar adventure—from buying monkfish on the quay to hitching rides with milkmen. With powerful flavor combinations and a flair for the unique, these recipes are sure to take you on a journey.
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.
