A group of historians and archaeologists prepare a Tudor feast as it would have been over 400 years ago, including the use of period clothes, recipes from the era, food sourced from the land and the absence of modern conveniences.
Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson travelled in the United Kingdom for all but two of the episodes, on a Triumph Thunderbird motorbike with a Watsonian "doublewide" sidecar. Paterson was the driver and Dickson Wright the occupant of the sidecar. See more »
Entertaining, educational, travel-logue of a cookery show!
A friend told me about "The two fat ladies". I watched one episode and was completely addicted.
In this day and age of fancy, glitzy cooking shows (which, I do admit, I have viewed and made recipes from), it is refreshing to watch these women.
I am not much of a meat-eater, but I still love the show. The scenery, the bursts into song, the literary quotes and, of course, the style of cooking. They are not fussy, yet make some lovely, unique (and tasty, trust me!) dishes.
Anyone who loves England will enjoy the views as they travel on their motorbike with side car. The little taste of travel and local history combined with cooking is wonderful.
I was so disappointed when both TVO and PBS stopped airing the series (and ceased with Delia's learn to cook at the same time!). Now that I receive the Food Network, I can watch "The ladies" almost every day.
Sit back, pour yourself a drink, and enjoy the Two Fat Ladies. Great stuff!
