This week, I meet blogger-turned-food writer and TV chef, Donal Skehan to find out how life as a former pop star – and being a new parent – inspired his latest book ‘Meals in Minutes’.
I couldn’t talk to Donal without mentioning his pop group days; he reveals all and tells me how he likes to push himself out of his comfort zone; from the euphoric highs of singing on stage – to thousands of fans – to the nerve-racking butterflies on his first time presenting Saturday Kitchen.
We chat about how he got into food, why Jamie Oliver inspired the 12-year-old Donal and taking tupperware food packages on pop tours around the country. Now, living in Los Angeles with his wife Sofie and baby son Noah, Donal is releasing his eighth cookbook.
Tune in to find out more about what inspired the book, as well as some top foodie tips for eating out in Puglia, Italy.
