Two Fat Ladies is a BBC Two television cooking programme starring Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson. It originally ran for four seasons, from 1996 to 1999. The show was produced by the BBC and has also appeared on the Food Network and Cooking Channel in the USA, and on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in Australia.
The show centres on Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson, travelling the United Kingdom, and in one case Ireland, on a Triumph Thunderbird motorcycle and Watsonian GP-700 "doublewide" sidecar driven by Paterson. They travel to various destinations, such as an army camp or an all-girls’ school, where they prepare large meals, often with unusual ingredients. Both ladies were very fond of strong flavours, often using anchovies, garlic, and seasonings quite liberally. The recipes are gleaned from an older time and tradition when rendered fat and drippings, raw eggs, and unpasteurised milk products were commonplace. They emphasise the importance of using fresh ingredients of the very best quality, eschewing supermarkets for farms and roadside markets.
