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.

Miles Jupp at his best

I enjoy anything with Miles Jupp in, I appreciate his intelligent humour. In my opinion one of the best comic actors we have. This audio book exceeded my expectations, I had already listened to a few episodes on radio 4, so I eagerly awaited any chance to revel in this delightful comedy. The relationship between Damien and Anthony is the main thread of the story but I particularly loved Damien's mother. I cannot recommend this highly enough. My husband and my sons have enjoyed it too. Don't hesitate, download it now and you will be smiling all day long!

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.

Soft and gentle humour

Would you listen to In and Out of the Kitchen, Series 1, 2, and 3 again? Why?

I would listen to this series again and in fact have recently started the first series again.

What did you like best about this story?

The best part of the audiobook is Miles Jupp's narration. The stories build gradually and give time for you to get to know them well.

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

Miles Jupp's narration and comments during each episode is played very low key but his timing is brilliant and asides can be very caustic.

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

In and Out of the Kitchen - see how truly humble I am.

Any additional comments?

There aren't many characters but that means you get to know them very well especially if dipping in and out to each episode rather than listening to the whole set as an audiobook.
