Clarissa Dickson Wright
Sue Lawley's castaway is TV chef Clarissa Dickson Wright.
Sue Lawley's guest this week is Clarissa Dickson Wright.
Born into a home where caviar was more common than fish paste, she has always been surrounded by fine food. Yet she came to cooking as a profession late in life, having first practised as a barrister. Finding success on television, she has recently had to come to terms with the death of her co host Jennifer Paterson and being just One Fat Lady.
