Information
First edition, seventh print hardback of TWO FAT LADIES: Gastronomic Adventures (with Motorbike and Sidecar), by Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright and published by Ebury Press, London, in 1996. Signed by Paterson and Dickson Wright on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (Clean pictorial glossy boards with white/ yellow lettering on the front and spine) with only minor wear to the dust jacket which is not price clipped (very light creasing to the spine edges and slight rubbing to spine corners). There is light yellowing to the pages and one or two very light stains on a couple of pages and a previous owner's inscription above the author signatures on the title page. Otherwise, internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears.

Two Fat Ladies, BBC Two television cooking programme originally ran for four series, from 1996 to 1999. The show centred on Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson, travelling the United Kingdom for most of the episodes, except for one episode in Ireland and a Christmas special in Jamaica, on a Triumph Thunderbird motorbike driven by Paterson.

Two Fat Ladies produced four cookbooks which detailed many of the recipes seen in their shows as well as some of their personal favourites. The cookbooks include Cooking with the Two Fat Ladies, The Two Fat Ladies Ride Again, The Two Fat Ladies Full Throttle and Two Fat Ladies Obsessions.

"Two Fat Ladies is one of the most original cookery series to be seen on television. Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright have brought their combined professional and personal experience of good food to the nation, covering fish and shellfish, meat, fruit and vegetables, cakes and baking, game and poultry, plus the pleasures of eating in the great outdoors. Though both are well-known in the food world, this is the first time that many of their recipes have appeared in print.

Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright are larger than life in more ways than one. With Jennifer astride a Triumph motorbike and Clarissa seated in the sidecar, they are the biggest thing to hit the screen in many a year. Between them they have a wealth of experience in cookery and, as some of their stories reveal, in most other areas of life as well.

Whether they are eating out of doors with the Scouts, shooting game with more enthusiasm than aim or baking cakes for a village fete, they have a dish, and often a song, for every occasion. Now they have gathered together some of their favourite recipes (or 'receipts', as Jennifer would say) so that you can share their delight in good, robust food, with the emphasis on taste rather than fashion. Whehter you want to know how to get away with shooting your next-door neighbour's peacock, or you just want to find out the secret of making perfect scones, Two Fat Ladies will tell you."

Contents include: How it all began...; Fish and Shellfish; Meat and Poultry; Cakes and Baking; Fruit and Vegetables; Game; Food in the Wild, and Index.
