Each down clue contains a superfluous word to be ignored in arriving at the solution. Each across entry in the grid may be deduced from its clue combined in the same way with one of the superfluous down clue words.

2d scoundrel
14 D. Yes, Crib, plagiarise, B, book, inside Sling, shy.
Sorry, for 14 D, Chronicler is the superflous word.
Instead of the answer to 1a ('cachou') a word sounding like it is entered - CASHEW (I think this is why you thought the answer to 2d started with 'c').
...and the definition for the entry at 1a comes from the superfluous word in 1d - 'nut'.
