Clarissa Dickson Wright found fame alongside Jennifer Paterson as one half of the much-loved TV cooking partnership Two Fat Ladies. She is the author of the bestselling memoir Spilling the Beans as well as many cookery books including The Game Cookbook and, most recently, Potty - her one-pot cookbook. She is also a passionate supporter of the Countryside Alliance and of rural life. She lives a little in London but mostly in Scotland.
Her engaging county-by-county ramble is seasoned with memories, snatches of poetry and salty opinion... The book's idiosyncratic historical detours are reminiscent of 1066 and All That * i * An appetising, adventurous ramble around the country that's a book for any traveller, or simply an entertaining armchair companion * The Good Book Guide 2013 *
