This cookbook is wonderful! A joy to read, even if not cooking or looking up a recipe. A few of the items are a tad difficult to come by in my part of the world (Pickled Walnuts & Gentlemens Relish for example), but most of them are accessable, and I've made many of these recipes with great success. I highly recommend "Devils on Horseback" which gave me quite a reputation at work. Thanks Jennifer & Clarissa!
This was, in my opnion, the best of the 4 cook books put out to go with the TV series "Two Fat Ladies." The lead in's to the dishes include all the charm of the first book but the receipies themselves have been better edited to make them much more user friendly. These are dishes anyone can manage.Although the sections are spread out by type of food rather than episode, they run heavily to small nibbly things and breakfast foods which can be used any time of the day. And while a few do have ingredients difficult to find in the US (pickled walnuts?) they are well worth the effort. Some recipies here have become staples of our family table and even part of our holiday traditions.I love to cook and I love to read a good cookbook. This provides both-good reading and good food. In my house you can always tell a well loved and used cook book by the stains on it. Splatters from flying ingrdients and such. a clean book in my house hasn't been turned loose in the cooking frenzy. People who know me and see my kitchen library can tell at a glance, this is clearly a well loved and well used book. It's that well stained!
Being a true fan of Clarissa Dickson Wright and the late Jennifer Paterson's TV Series, I was delighted to discover their book, Two Fat Ladies Ride Again. I do hope the series is available on DVD. The recipes are always unusual, well written and I'm sure, judging from the TV series, absolutely delicious. The book is worth reading for the anecdotes alone. I can't wait to acquire other books in the series or written by either of the two women.
I bought this book (and the first volume too) because I'm a fan of their TV series (I also bought the complete DVD set of all the episodes...Wow!!!).The "Two Fat Ladies" prove again and again that cooking can be both fun and rewarding for those of us who love the kitchen but never got to go study at that famous French chef's school.So far, every recipe in this book that I've tried has turned out exceptionally well, garnering praise from everyone who has tasted the dishes I've made using it. I can truthfully say that buying this book was one of my better ideas!!!!I also bought the Nero Wolfe cookbook, and it also makes my kitchen time a delightful experience.
This was a gift for my boyfriend who loves to be in the kitchen.I watched the Two Fat Ladies when I lived in England, and have been telling him about their realist and decadent approach to cooking. So, I was very happy when I was finally able to find a hardback copy of the book for him at a very decent price!Not only is it full of yummy recipes, but highly amusing stories too - well worth a read :-)
Even though I have the television series on DVD, I can't get enough. This book reflects the joy and spirit these two brought to their work. Jennifer may be gone, but she's still thrilling me with this book, which even my husband likes. There approach is unique, and I fear we shall never see their like again.
Stop with worring about food and start enjoing it. Just reading the book rises your cholesterol level but who cares. It's great to see these ladies enyoy cooking and enyoing life. A great gift for anyone who can't stick to his/her diet and feels misserable about it.
I love ALL the books from the 2 Fat Ladies. How could any serious look not be infatuated with their enthusiasm,gustatory pleasures and love of butter? Let the fat police be damned. I eagerly cook from this book with frequency. Heaven must be eating well in Jennifer's company.
