Hi.

Welcome to Desert Island Dishes. The official website for the weekly podcast where chef Margie Broadhead talks to a special guest about their life with food.

Here you will find conversations with a whole range of different people discussing their Desert Island Dishes.

The act of sharing one’s favourite dishes is both deeply personal and fascinating. Margie is able to reveal a different side to the guest being interviewed and find out about much more than the dishes that have shaped their lives.

We will find out about their favourite childhood dishes, the dishes they eat the most often, and the dishes that mean the most to them. Of course we will also discover what their last dish would be before being cast off to the desert island. 

Each week Margie will select one of the guest's Desert Island Dishes to use as inspiration to create a recipe around. There are already lots of delicious recipes for you to look through and to inspire your cooking.

Enjoy! x

EPISODE 56: DONAL SKEHAN: TV CHEF & FOOD WRITER

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!
