Clarissa Dickson Wright, formerly of Two Fat Ladies fame, has ten cookery books, one Food Anthology and an autobiography to her name. She starred with Johnny Scott in three series of Clarissa and the Countryman for BBC2 and they co-authored the bestselling The Game Cookbook and Sunday Roast. Her no-nonsense approach to food led to frequent media appearances and her outspoken and witty views won her many friends. She was a passionate supporter of rural life and pursuits.
Sadly, Clarissa died aged 66 on Saturday 15th March 2014 at Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary. She will be greatly missed.
