With her inimitable wit, treasury of tales and outspoken views, Clarissa Dickson Wright opens her diary and takes us on a journey around Britain and her life. As celebrated cook and champion of the countryside, Clarissa recalls episodes from her life and describes her encounters with everyone from local farmers to Women's Institutes, supermarket managers to greyhound coursers. A lover of local traditions, she has attended events from the Whitstable Oyster Festival to the Hungerford Hochtide. In a world of political correctness, Rifling Through My Drawers is a breath of fresh air and proves once again why Clarissa is one of the nation's true treasures.
