Publisher's Summary

A charming childhood memoir (with postcards from the present) from food writer Damien Trench, protagonist of BBC Radio 4's critically acclaimed sitcom In and Out of the Kitchen, as told to News Quiz presenter and star of Rev, Miles Jupp.
'I have just had one of those absolutely mad mornings when you go out to have a browse at tagines and end up coming home with a brand-new gas ring expander. I think I was probably as surprised as anybody. Sometimes life is just like that, isn't it?'
Award-winning food writer Damien Trench takes you on a journey through his childhood and his early inspirations - culinary and otherwise - with occasional diversions to the present.

Just brilliant like catching up with an old friend

If like me you loved in and out of the kitchen then you will love this. I binge listened in just 2 days. If you have not listened to in and out of the kitchen I do think it's needed first. There is no massive storyline it's just Damien plodding along telling the listener random tales and going off at many tangents indeed. Hope there is a second one

Good but not great

Solid and gently witty with Miles giving his trademark Damien performance. Not as good as In and Out of the Kitchen though, as you quickly realise that Damien needs the rest of the ensemble to bounce off (and also to dilute his pomposity). That said, I enjoyed it a lot and it makes a perfect accompaniment to cooking the Sunday lunch 😀
