In addition to the delights of the Strawberry Wobbler and Nobby's Mum's Distressed Pudding, Mrs Ogg imparts her thoughts on life, death, etiquette, courtship, children and weddings, all in a refined style that should not offend the most delicate of sensibilities. Well, not much.

You have to say it even if what you intend is a lot of port. NOC If you are a king your daughter will be beautiful.
People have tried all kinds of aids to beauty, like washing in the morning dew, shoving yoghurt on their faces, etc, but for my money the best way to be beautiful is to have a dad with a lot of money and a bunch of armed men. I was once a rather shy girl who had difficulty meeting young men.
But it wore off by mid-morning when I realized what I was doing wrong.
What must be emphasised is that the book is not a cookbook in the traditional sense. It could perhaps be likened to the Kama Sutra in terms of content, through perhaps being of Nanny's authorship, a trifle more vulgar and also perhaps even more explicit, and not unnaturally perhaps most of all very descriptive.
