Written by and starring Miles Jupp, this sitcom series features the entries and recipes from the kitchen diary of cookery writer, Damien Trench.

Each week, listeners hear a mixture of narrative, dialogue and recipes, as Damien unflinchingly captures every angle of his day-to-day life.

This first episode finds Damien and his partner, Anthony, deciding on their New Year's resolutions. They start by finally making up their minds to commit to each other, namely by signing up a builder, Mr Mullaney, to install a new kitchen which Damien hopes will eventually become the food and preparation space that he's always dreamed of. Anthony also decides to get fit and Damien decides to do a radio programme about the French bean. But not everything goes according to plan.

The programme also features Damien's easy-to-follow recipes, for example Super Simple Roast Beef and Marvellously Moist Muffins.

The show also appeared on television in 2015 under the same name.
