In their third uncensored romp through British and European cuisine, TV's doyennes of decadent food let it rip with all-new, rebelliously rich recipes and food for thought. This raucous ride finds Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson storming across the cattle and pig farms of Britain to reclaim meat-eaters, searching through dead royals' repertoires for time-tested treasures, and even venturing down under to Australia for their delectable gems.
Companion to their hit series, The Two Fat Ladies Full Throttle offers a diversity of dishes that makes menu planning easy. These intensely flavored recipes deliver palate-pleasing meals that are a delight on your plate as well, for as Clarissa maintains, "Nothing is worse than an all-white menu."
In their own inimitable fashion, the Ladies tackle everything from potent cocktails and savory soufflés to full-flavored pheasant. Appetizers range from satisfying soups spiked with exotic notes like a Chicken and Ginger Soup to tasty crêpes, mousses, tarts, and terrines. Whether it's lamb wrapped in delicate phyllo pastry or a beef stew served with pumpkin scones, main dishes are both comforting and heartwarming, delivering a full measure of robust flare. When it comes to poultry, the Ladies incorporate a wide variety of seasonings to create Calcutta Chicken Croquettes and Spanish Chicken Andalouse. They attack side dishes with similar gusto. A fetchingly colored Tomato Tart and Sugar-Browned Potatoes, laced with a divine caramelized sugar, bring zest to even simple entrées. To finish off these hearty offerings, indulge in the Ladies' desserts, which include creamy custards, Apple Balls smothered in pastry, and a daringly delicious Chocolate Crème Brûlée.
Never has indulgence been so over the top and so very tempting. Replete with hilarious anecdotes from their forays into the British countryside and beyond the Channel, The Two Fat Ladies Full Throttle includes full-color photos of finished dishes. Just as their popular cooking series and two best-selling books won them a place in our hearts, The Two Fat Ladies Full Throttle offers us more delightfully decadent meals that are sure to please.
