Fanny Cradock - Video

In the US they had Julia Childs, and in the UK before Delia became the goddess of cooking we had the eccentric Fanny Cradock, who was one of the first TV chefs, hence the reason why this video is in black and white. She was to say the least a colourful character and had a reputation of being rather rude and because of an incident on a TV programme, which can be found on YouTube, was "let go" by the BBC and was replaced by Delia Smith.

Here is a very early clip, enjoy
