JENNIFER PATERSON and CLARISSA DICKSON WRIGHT, the two Fat Ladies', are fast becoming an institution. Having shared with us their delight in good, robust food in their first two series, in their third for the BBC, and in this accompanying book, they investigate the best that the British Isles have to offer. With Jennifer at the controls of the motorbike, and Clarissa safely wedged in the sidecar, they take to the road once more and savour such typical aspects of British life as a gymkhana, the joys of bee-keeping, how to rear Gloucester Old Spot pigs and what cooking for the Cambridge Rowing Eight entails. Wherever their adventures take them, they plan the perfect menu for each occasion. Along the way they offer more examples of the fearlessness and forthrightness that have endeared them to the nation. This book contains all the recipes from the series, along with many others, illustrated with colour photographs of the food and stills from the programme.
