Miles Jupp will entertain us with an evening delving into the mind of his comedy creation, Damien Trench – urbane food writer and protagonist of BBC Radio 4’s acclaimed sitcom In and Out of the Kitchen.
Damien Trench is one of the most well-respected cookery writers working today. but what were the formative experiences that sent him on the path to culinary acclaim? in Egg and Soldiers, Damien opens up for the first time about his childhood – from the blissful early years playing with wooden cookery sets at ‘Tiny Steps’ nursery, to adolescent struggles (the Swiss Cottage Poo incident and subsequent therapy, a panic attack in a petting zoo, having a clever older sister), to catering college and falling in love with food. At last, the lid has been lifted on one of the most interesting voices in modern cookery.
