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.

Local Government Officer, listens to audiobooks whilst commuting, loves Biographies of quintessentially English eccentrics.
I had high hopes for this book having loved her book "Spilling the beans" which I strongly recommend. I found this book to be boring and rambling in parts. It was disjointed, far too self indulgently preaching about country sports and a huge disappointment to me. Choose something else!
Yes , it makes your heart fly to hear eloquent language used so deftly.
A postillion struck my lightening.
Because again deftly witty writing
From start to end
I did , at the second listening three days later
I loved spilling the beans also
