Clarissa Dickson Wright, 1947-2014: R.I.P.

One of the "Two Fat Ladies" of BBC's beloved cooking show.

Her partner on the show, Jennifer Patterson, died in 1999, which brought the show to a halt.

The show was a lot of fun, and helped bring back (along with Paula Deen's show in the US) traditional cooking recipes rich in sauces, butter and desserts. Not the healthiest cooking, but no one lives forever anyway, right? I have the Two Fat Ladies cookbook on my own shelf.

Wright's full name was Clarissa Theresa Philomena Aileen Mary Josephine Agnes Elsie Trilby Louise Esmerelda Dickson Wright, which is an appropriate sort of name for her, I think.
