'Informative, entertaining and forthright.'
- Manchester Evening News reviews:

"With her inimitable wit and outspoken views, acclaimed cooking guru Clarissa Dickson Wright provides an unrivalled collection of stories and anecdotes from her ever-eventful life in this touching memoir. As a celebrated cook and a champion of the countryside, Clarissa's year includes meeting with local farmers and supermarket managers, attending an oyster festival and county fairs, and encountering an adorable fishing terrier named Kipper. Introducing both long-forgotten traditions and colourful local festivals alike, Clarissa meets up with a range of extraordinary characters and good friends old and new."

"Clarissa once again thrills the reader with witty stories and charming anecdotes. Her world and the people in it are wonderful and madcap just as she is herself. An enchanting read."
