EPISODE 56: DONAL SKEHAN: TV CHEF & FOOD WRITER

My guest today is Donal Skehan

Donal is blogger turned TV chef, cook book author and general star of the food scene.

He has written no less than 8 cookbooks, has nearly 250,000 followers on Instagram, 750,000 on his Youtube channel and has done countless TV shows. He is known for his simple no nonsense approach to home cooking and is adamant he is a cook rather than a chef.

Even with the release of his first cookbook way back when, he was dubbed Irelands answer to Jamie Oliver which is in equal parts amazing, and a lot of pressure. But Donal’s career has gone from strength to strength over the years and he is well known all over the world thanks to his numerous TV shows including Junior Masterchef and appearing on Food Network.

Born in Ireland, Donal now lives and works in LA with his wife Sophie and their baby son Noah. We find out all about how life and most importantly food in LA compares to back home, and we discover how Donal got his lucky break.

Donal is every bit as lovely as you imagine him to be and there are lots of delicious dishes in this one.

Thank you for listening!
