3d Carriages for one person (14) D?S?B?I?E?N?E? Can somebody please put me out of my misery? It's one of the few no-one's asked about so it can't be that difficult. Have I got letters wrong or is it...

Ploughed through this month's crossword, but struggling with what I'd guess are two 'tap ins'. 28a 'Maxim accepts English instructions for body-building' (6) -E-O-E and 2d 'Euterpe edible? Very much...

Last one, and I'm tired. 32d "White haricot beans" C_N_L_I_I Thought it must be a different spelling of 'cannelini', but can't find it anywhere. Are any of my letters wrong? Thanks in advance
