Having shared their delight in good, robust food in their first two series, the "Two Fat Ladies" (Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright) have been commissioned again by BBC TV to investigate the best that the UK has to offer. The book contains all the recipes from the series and more.

Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright--the Two Fat Ladies--must be Britain's quirkiest cooks. They are not only famous for their lard-laden fare, but also for their political incorrectness and their trademark motorcycle and sidecar.
This cookbook coincides with the third series of their BBC television show. In it they visit typically British evens such as a Pony Club gymkhana and cook for the Cambridge First Boat crew. What they dish up is hearty British fare made with good home-grown produce. They provide us with their versions of such British standards as tripe and onions, baked rabbit, and pot roast of beef. But there are also some imports, such as Sardinian artichoke pie and harrira.
Each recipe is accompanied by amusing asides from the Two Fat Ladies on topics like the dangers of vegetarianism and the statistical likelihood of contracting BSE from quality beef products. The recipes are also illustrated with excellent colour photographs. Black-and-white photographs show the ladies on their motorcycle at Kylemore Abbey and dressed up for bee keeping.
Paterson and Dickson Wright are fabulous and so is their food as it's guaranteed to inspire and will have you in the kitchen in no time. --Dale Kneen
