First published in 1924, this delightfully odd collection of recipes, poetry, tips for swimming with rubber blow-up toys, and transcriptions of birdsongs on the piano is updated with some contemporary contributions. Clarissa Dickson Wright, chef and countryside campaigner tells us how to make the most of the ever versatile pig. Legendary adventurer and writer Rory Stewart tells us how to prepare for a long walk. And Oscar-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes explains how to be the perfect guest. Also included are the rules for human polo, recipes for an ambrosial Sunday brunch, and a complete illustrated guide to that most daunting or sartorial peaks: the bow tie.
