Miles Jupp stars as fussy food writer Damien Trench in three series of the much-loved BBC Radio 4 sitcom.
Well-known cookery writer Damien Trench is famous for his book A Year In The Kitchen, a diary of everything he cooked and ate over the course of twelve months. Now, for the follow-up volume In and Out of the Kitchen, Damien undertakes to open up the doors “not only to my kitchen, but also to my life”. But is Damien’s life as idyllic as his readers might suppose?
During the course of these sixteen episodes, we follow the ups and downs of life for Damien and his partner Anthony, as Damien films a pilot for his TV series Poets and their Palates, appears at a literary festival, dips his toe into the world of journalism, contends with the well-meaning interference of friends, family and builder Mr Mullaney, and faces many other trials and tribulations.
Many of Damien’s recipes are included along the way. As he himself might say, enjoy - and more importantly, cook.
