‘Two Fat Ladies’ now for your small screen

By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor Two fat ladies, a motorcycle with a sidecar, and more bacon, cream and butter than is good for anyone. It’s an odd formula for compelling food television, but it became the stuff of genius when Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright transformed it all into the deliciously campy “Two Fat Ladies” cooking show. The 24-episode BBC series, which first aired more than a decade ago and later was shown on public television and the Food Network, now is being released in the U.S. as a complete DVD set. The series followed Paterson (who died in 1999) and Dickson Wright as they traveled by motorcycle, cooking for unusual crowds (such as lumberjacks and boys’ choirs) in unlikely places (including breweries and castles). On the screen: “Two Fat Ladies” DVD set will be available July 29 for $59.99 from http://www.acornonline.com Published in The Messenger 7.23.08
