Comfort food at it's best!
After collecting so many cook books that dress the plate like an art exhibit, it's so nice to find a cook book that is written by real people for real people!
Yes, the food is is at the higher level of "comfort" food, but it's the 1960's come back to life... bubble 'n' squeak, rabbit, pease pudding and the like are all there to take you back gloriously to those far forgotten days.
The recipes are written so that they are easy to follow and it's just like having your Mum at your side giving you advice; no fancy spring-sided cake tins for the Adult Chocolate cake, you just give the bottom of the tin a good "thump".
The book is amusing, well written interspersed with Jennifer & Clarissa's personal memories (which are worth the price of the book alone!) and they did it all with an Royal Enfield (isn't that where the Queen keeps her chickens?)
Sad that Jennifer is no longer with us, but in the hope that Clarissa soldiers on for many more books... I shall definitely be buying them!

With fish pies, slow cooked lamb and scotch eggs on the menu,who could resist ! As newcomer to these wonderful ladies and their concoctions, I was very happy to discover that it was very easy to put the food together.
Most of the recipies are accompanied by a little tale of their origin that are interesting and amusing, and give a you a warmth for the meal you are about to prepare. The ladies have put such a love for food onto paper and it shines through. The food is sophisticated, beautifully balanced and everyone can find at least five recipies that will become firm favorites for all time.

After having seen these two on tv I couldn't resist buying the book. And I wasn't disappointed. The recipes are not all that complicated, the resulting meals are a revelation and the comments of the two ladies are always good for a laugh. Seeing that their view on food is sideways on the nowadays accepted way of cooking and pointing in the direction of enjoyment you can't go wrong! Saskia

Format: Hardcover
Old classics whether its bikes, ladies or food just seem to get better with age. This combination of wit, wisdom and cuisine is as entertaining now as it was in the nineties when it came out. About as PC as a Bernard Manning joke this book revels in the use of quality ingredients and anecdotes. Finished off with a flourish of red painted nails, the Two Fat Ladies are classics indeed.

This book is fantastic - as are the Ladies that have written it. The recepies are truly extraordinary, their comments as well. Even if I never try the recepies,(which I will, because all my family begs me to) the book makes me just want to join these Ladies on their adventures!!!
