He’s been called “Ireland’s answer to Jamie Oliver”. He has a successful music career as well as a very popular and award winning cookery blog. And now he’s about to launch his second cookery book, Kitchen Hero. I am of course talking about the unbelievably modest overachiever and Ireland’s own, Donal Skehan.
I’ve only recently read his first cook book despite having tried a number of the recipes. It’s a really informative read (the bits between the recipes like) there are lots of great tips, what to keep in the cupboards, thinking around the ingredients you have to hand in order to make the dish you want and much more.
To me it’s a great introduction for beginners or those of us looking for fresh ideas and it reminds me a lot of Jamie Oliver’s “Naked Chef” books which are the ones that got me past the toast, fry ups and pre-prepared meal phase and into real cooking.
Needless to say I can’t wait to see the new book and thumb through its pages, to drool over the various recipes for myself. What new delights will it hold? Unfortunately its not due for release until March 3rd, I guess I’m just going to have to pre-order it and wait.
Best of luck with it Donal, oh and when are you getting your own TV show? Do you need an assistant for it?
