Donal Skehan is a 25 year old home cook, food writer and Television presenter who has written three cookbooks, Good Mood Food (Mercier Press, 2009), Kitchen Hero: Bringing Cooking Back Home (Harper Collins, 2011), and Kitchen Hero: Great Food For Less (Harper Collins 2012). Donal has presented two 14 part, prime time Irish television cookery programs which have been sold to the UK, France and Brazil and his books have been translated to both German and Swedish. Donal’s ethos on cooking is that all his recipes should be accessible, inspiring and encouraging for the everyday home cook.
He has been cooking from the age of four when he flipped his first pancake and has been in the kitchen ever since! Inspired by a family of passionate foodies, his parents run a food production company, and cooking and eating hearty home cooked food has always been a way of life. Donal is also an accomplished food photographer and his photography skills have been put to good use as he photographs all his own food images for his blog and books.
