This is an enticing and delightful book., 20 Aug. 2009
A great book to dip in to for inspiration and, for one who enjoys a drink but may not be the most discerning drinker, like me, it is a useful source of tips, opinions and basic does and don'ts that draw your attention even to the choices involved in making a basic cup of tea, making a habitual act all the more meaningful and pleasurable. I particularly loved the chapter on stocking up, with its decisive list of basic bottles to have in the drinks cupboard which evoked warm social gatherings kindled by beautifully mixed drinks and erased the last remaining bit of puritanism in me. A promise of many liquid pleasures.
