Each episode of In And Out Of The Kitchen features a few entries from the kitchen diary of cookery writer, Damien Trench. In a mixture of narrative, dialogue and recipes, Damien unflinchingly captures every angle of his life, "no matter how grizzly" as he puts it "or, indeed, how gristly".
This episode sees Damien and his partner, Anthony, setting off for the warm embrace of the Italian countryside so that Damien can do some writing for a new book, and their builder Mr Mullaney can have space to properly fit the granite worktops that Damien's been dreaming of "from what seems like the beginning of the Jurassic era". But there's trouble in paradise when Damien receives a call to tell him their Umbrian villa has collapsed and they will have to go somewhere else. Luckily, Damien's agent, Ian, is quick to the rescue...
The programme also features Damien's easy-to-follow recipes for:
- a perfect pasta puttanesca
- comforting Cornish Pasties
- something for the more experimental, "pilchards al limone".
