Roast fillet of lard



Sad news to wake to this morning.  RIP Clarissa. Now at last you can have that reunion with Jennifer. Both gone far too early.
I adored the Two Fat Ladies, along with Keith Floyd they were TV cooks who really loved food and eating. What is the joy of life without a little excess?

    I missed that news.
    How sad. They were wonderful weren't they?

  2. Clarissa's autobiography is well worth reading.

    1. Yes, I agree. Very interesting book indeed though I wish she had been a little less discreet with the gossip! She was a remarkable woman.

  3. I didn't realise they were so young!
    AND they were right about all that fabulous fat...
    Though Jennifer always reminded me of my mother-in-law...
    Not sure who I would have been more afraid of... :/

    1. Clarissa was only 66, who'd have thought it.

  4. I met her at a game fair once - she had just got out of a tent, and really looked like it. Ironic that she has kicked the bucket just as they have finally decided that saturated fats are NOT bad for your heart after all - something she had been saying for years.
