Entertaining, poignant, and never politically correct, this heartfelt memoir offers a year in the life of one of today's most unique culinary experts


With her inimitable wit and outspoken views, acclaimed cooking guru Clarissa Dickson Wright provides an unrivaled 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 long-forgotten traditions and colorful local festivals alike, Clarissa meets up with a range of extraordinary characters and good friends old and new.

The lady speaks her mind, whether it be on how literary festivals exploit authors or the idiocy of the Iraq war. The book is thus guaranteed to annoy everybody. And yet she gets away with it. The reasons are her honesty, courage and also the respect accorded to the Great British Eccentric, especially when posh. She will probably end up classified by the National Trust. - The Sunday Age

It is amusingly unruly, with so many digressions and diversions that all the reader can do is go along for the ride and hope that by the end it all makes sense. Which it does, in a haphazard kind of way. - Sydney Morning Herald

A wealth of hilarious anecdotes and observations - Unite Magazine

Delightfully outrageous - Scotsman

informative, entertaining and forthright - Manchester Evening News

Larger than life and bubbling with caustic wit, Clarissa Dickson Wright is just the person to break through the recessionary gloom and make you chuckle. - Good Book Guide
