More About the Author

Donal Skehan is a 23 year old home cook who writes and photographs food for a living. He has been cooking from an early age and inspired by a family of foodies, food quickly became a way of life. During his teens he worked with his aunt, one of Ireland's top food stylists, and got the chance to work alongside some of Ireland's top food photographers including Jocasta Clarke and Walter Pfeiffer.

Donal started his very own food blog, thegoodmoodfoodblog.com in 2007 where he writes about his food adventures and recipes everyday. After only 6 months blogging, he was approached by Irish Publishing house, Mercier Press to write a cookbook based around the recipes on the blog.

Good Mood Food was released in October 2009 and received fantastic reviews from editor of Food & Wine magazine, - Ross Golden-Bannon - "Good Mood Food is a new breed of cookbook that springs from the talent of a passionate home cook. A truly scrumptious read.", Paulo Tulio - "At last... Simple, easy recipes that are healthy and interesting. Donal Skehan's book reclaims good food from the convenience of supermarket shelves and puts it back where it belongs - in the domestic kitchen." and RTE.ie, described him as "Ireland's answer to Jamie Oliver".

Donal's TV and radio appearances include , Four Live, Ireland AM, The Afternoon Show, ICE, Nationwide and Market Kitchen in the UK, The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show and The Tubridy Show.

In March 2010, Donal flew to Paris to cater for 700 people at an event called Vielle Foodstock organised by Parisien magazine, Le Fooding sponsored by Bord Bia and Jameson Whiskey. The event was a huge success and was widely covered in the French media. The same week Donal flew back to Ireland just in time to win the award for Best Food/Drink Blog at the Irish Blog Awards in Galway.

Donal is currently working on his second cookbook, "Kitchen Hero", all the recipes for which he has photographed himself, and is filming a 13 part series for RTE to be aired in 2011. Donal also writes a weekly column in The Cork News, a monthly column in the Irish Independent and Irish Tatler magazine and demonstrates recipes on his weekly slot on RTÉ's 4Live show.

Aside from the culinary world Donal has also had 2 number one singles ("My Baby's Waiting" June 2009 and "Burn" August 2009) in the Irish music charts as a member of pop group "Industry" and has also supported the Pussycat Dolls and JLS on their Irish tours.

I love his books. They are easy to follow and I have found the recipes foolproof. I first came across him on TV in Kitchen Hero. His style is easy and affordable with a few twists here and there.

First saw this in my local library, thought just what the world needs another celebrity chef and from a boy-band too!! But checked it out to see what he was offering and now I am eating my words, great recipes,easy to use. Some old with a tasty twist and some new. And did I say easy to uses, a must for me, don't want to be stuck in the kitchen for hours twiddling about with stuff.
All I got to say is thanks to the local library for opening me up to new things, and the chef of course!

Another fabulous cook book by Donal.

What I've always loved about his recipies is that they're suitable for anyone, from complete amateur cooks right up to the professionals.

Each recipe is clear and concise and it makes dishes that I normally wouldn't even consider eating look appealing! The amazing photos and Donal's descriptions of the foods sure do help in swaying me towards things I normally wouldn't go near.

It's an extremely enjoyable book to read and there's really something for everyone in it.

If I could give this more than 5 stars I would..

Really loved Donal's book Kitchen Hero so when I spotted this new book I just knew I HAD to get it. It is packed with recipes that you can make from home and are sure to impress all of your friends and family.
The photography is spectacular and really brings the book alive. It is so colourful and sure to make you want to try every recipe.
The recipes are divided into sections that allow for easy location of what you would like to make that day be it fast and healthy, food to share or proper comfort food. The recipes really suit the season we are in (all deliciously comforting and great for the cold winter evenings ahead of us) and I can't wait to try the desserts. I already have my bookmark on the ultimate rocky road and crazy monkey brownie baked alaska. Yummm!
Let the fun begin!

I have been a fan of Donal's books and TV series for a while now and with each book being released they just seem to get even better than the last and his latest book is no exception! It's full of fabulous recipes accompanied with the most amazing photography and easy to follow instructions that's bound to get everyone cooking. With Home Cooked Donal proves yet again just how fun cooking can be. I'm really enjoying this book and I have never loved cooking as much as I do now. I know for a fact that I'll be attempting the recipes many times. Home Cooked is a must have book that should be in everyone's kitchen.

A nice range of recipes but would have like a few more unusual dishes. Clearly set out, easy to follow.
