Publisher's Summary

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 12 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 listeners might suppose?
During the course of these 16 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.

Insomnia

What did you like most about In and Out of the Kitchen, Series 1, 2, and 3?

I use audio books somewhat like a non-chemical sleeping tablet, turn it on & drift off to sleep. However, IN AND OUT OF THE KITCHEN failed miserably as a sleep aid; I choked with laughter! This fun-induced insomnia creates daily flashbacks of hilarious incidents.


What other book might you compare In and Out of the Kitchen, Series 1, 2, and 3 to, and why?

Nothing comparable comes to mind!


What does Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

What is so funny about relating builder's parlance, for instance "de four-b-twos"? Comprehending the richness of Mr Milenney's participation in the story could only be appreciated in audio.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A film of this book could be described as
HILARIOUS, CHAOTIC & TENDER


Any additional comments?

This whirlwind of chaotic hilarity is a love story. The writer takes mundane domestic occurrences as his raw material and recycles the incidents so that we not only laugh at the story, but at ourselves. Hidden in the folds of fun are the serious real life stuff of relationships in society, tenderness and love.

Wonderfully witty with really useful recipes

If you could sum up In and Out of the Kitchen, Series 1, 2, and 3 in three words, what would they be?

Funny, relaxing and inspirational


What other book might you compare In and Out of the Kitchen, Series 1, 2, and 3 to, and why?

Nothing but then I haven't listened to a cookery book before.


What does Miles Jupp and Justin Edwards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Very restful voices and easy to listen to. It felt as if I were a friend, invited for dinner and being told a witty story.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I wouldn't say I was moved by anything, more like a developing friendship and general interest in the happy progression of people's lives, their family, friends publisher not forgetting the builder.


Any additional comments?

This is the first time I have made bookmarks for recipes in a story. I find I keep popping back to the book to find a recipe, then re-listen to the whole chapter as I companionably cook along to little observations and pearls of wisdom to cheer up a rainy day.
Thank you for sharing your lives and recepies.
