Two Fat Ladies Star Chef Dies at 66

Their cooking show was quite popular. All of Britain watched it with avid eagerness. The show started being aired on the BBC from the year 1996. Called Two Fat Ladies, it features Clarissa Dickson Wright and her sidekick Jennifer Paterson

The two made rounds of the English countryside in their Triumph motorcycle (it had a side car). They cooked marvelous and delicious recipes and exchanged tips on romance, existence and of course food. 

Clarissa had a wonderful sense of humor that was spiced up with a dose of weirdness and straightforwardness. Some of their culinary delights were really quite scrumptious leading to their show’s immense popularity. 

Clarissa belonged to a very rich family. Her father was a famous surgeon who was also a pathological alcoholic. She herself faced her personal demons and after bouts of alcoholism gave up her law practice to pursue cookery as a full time job. 

Clarissa faced a setback when her partner on the show died of cancer in 1999. Today she herself is no more with us. She died of an unspecified illness at her home. 

Her age was 66. And Clarissa had been suffering from her illness since the past few months or so. It was in her middle age that Clarissa gave some serious thought to cooking as a profession. 

The word “chef” appealed to her. She also penned two books on the subject. The series Two Fat Ladies features the two females heading out on their motorcycle for various places in England. 

Their cooking tips flew in the face of the oppressive diet industry. Butter, tongue, Indian tea and bacon got all the accolades as tasty foods. 

Meanwhile, lentils, vegetables and other health foods got the thumbs down from the two fat ladies. They were an odd but sweet couple that will be dearly missed by culinary experts and foodies around the world.
