Irish Book Awards

Donal Skehan

Donal Skehan 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, cooking and eating hearty home cooked food has always been a way of life.

In 2007 Donal started his own food blog, where he writes about his food adventures and recipes. Four cookbooks and many TV series have followed and Donal has judged some of the UK’s finest young cooks on BBC’s ‘Junior MasterChef’. Donal is part of the new generation of tech-savvy foodies; as comfortable using Instagram and filming for YouTube as he is cooking in his own kitchen.

Donal is also an accomplished food photographer and shot all the food pictures in FRESH. Donal lives in Ireland with his wife Sofie and dog Max.
