Foodies, rejoice! "Two Fat Ladies" on DVD

I used to drop everything to watch Clarissa Dickson Wright and Jennifer Paterson when their decadent and delightful cooking show, "Two Fat Ladies," was on the Food Network. All four seasons of the show were just released on DVD, in a fabulous box set that has become an instant hit in our household, cholesterol levels notwithstanding. (Hey, you don't have to cook every recipe on the show in order to enjoy them!)

Short Orders
Pass the butter, please

For those who have missed the inimitable "Two Fat Ladies" - and, really, what foodie hasn't? - Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright are back, this time on DVD. Of course, bacon and butter abound. All 24 episodes from the British cooking show's four-season run are on this four-disc boxed set ($59.99), along with a moving tribute to Paterson (who died in 1999) and six classic recipes. Our favorite moment? Watching the two fix an enormous feast for the priests at the Westminster Cathedral (where they prepare Bubble and Squeak using an insane amount of lard). At Barnes & Noble and Borders. -- Lylah M. Alphonse [More]
