  • "`When we read Rita Kong on domestic bliss in Vogue - and we always do - we recognise a woman who understands that now not everybody knows how to do basic stuff; clean, maintain. And we think she's on to something in Rita's Culinary Trickery, her nifty book about entertaining, not so much in the recipes (though they are dandy) as in asking basic questions about how to give and have a good time, how to be a good host and guest. Crucial - because we don't know how to behave, yet we don't want to be told. She says wisely that etiquette isn't important, manners are."
