I thought I would leave the Silence of the Lambs line to you guys!!!!

Tomatoes and silver beet (in England we call it swiss chard, it's like spinach except horrible - and it grows really well and no one likes it. So wehn giving away a pound of tomatoes, people get a bunch of silver beet if they want it or not!!!!)

Another "Two Fat Ladies" recipe for broad beans is "Beans Means Fritz"
Cooked fava beans are dressed with olive oil, bacon, onion. boiled egg and anchovies. Awesome!

Oh dear Deadly Sushi, you never heard of Two Fat Ladies??? Right, The late Jennifer Patterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright made four series of fantastic cookery programmes, and wrote books to accompany the series. They are very English, and have an uncompromising attitude to using fresh ingredients, and as the title suggests, don't shy away from using oil and butter and even lard. I use their recipes quite a lot, Jennifer's beef in pastry is what I made for Christmas dinner. Check 'em out!

I've never heard of silver beet, but in the U.S. we have Swiss chard too, and no one here likes it either, except some of my dad's family. lol

I used to watch Two Fat Ladies awhile back. I can't remember where, but I enjoyed watching them. If I remember right, they were biker women (I won't call them chicks). Very funny! But I enjoyed it.

To me, Jennifer Patterson made that show. She broke all the rules for a professional cook and did so unashamedly. She was funny and irreverent. I miss the show a lot.
