Belloc wrote this essay of "advice on wine, food and other matters" as a wedding present for Bridget Herbert, the daughter of his close friends Aubrey and Mary Herbert. Much of the text is taken up with a discussion on wine - how to warm, cool, open, decant and pour it - however other subjects include salad, salt, coffee, and cutlery.
