'Kitchen Hero' visits Carnaross

Donal Skehan at Sheridans' Cheesemongers fourth Irish Food Festival

Chef Donal Skehan visits Sheridans’ Cheesemongers, Carnaross, when his Kitchen Hero series returns to RTE One on Thursday, 31st October at 7pm.
Donal is back on the road in his trusty vintage Citroen H van for the second part of this third series of Kitchen Hero Home Cooked. The popular presenter is on a mission, showing people just how easy it is to prepare delicious, home cooked food as he lays out his stall at festivals and gatherings around the country. It’s Donal’s Home Cooked roadshow.
In programme 7, which airs on Thursday, 31st October, Donal visits Sheridans Cheesemongers’ fourth Irish food festival at their Virginia Road Station headquarters in Carnaross where he is one of the judges at the Brown Bread competition.
Also in this programme, Donal prepares a very tasty Kedgeree, Lime & Coconut Chicken, and a very ‘moreish’ Lemon Meringue Pie.
“Everything I know I either taught myself or learned from my mother and grandmother” says Donal. The most important thing I know is that home-cooked food can be tastier, healthier and cheaper than almost any ready-made meals, take-aways or fast food you can buy. If you cook your own food, you know exactly what goes into it – how much sugar, how much salt, what kind of oil or butter and of course there are none of those funny sounding ingredients, trans-fats or E-numbers.
“But for me, the satisfaction of giving people food that they enjoy is just as important as the healthy stuff and the price. I get a real buzz from cooking for my friends and family and seeing them tuck into what I put on the table.”
Donal will be travelling the country to promote the Home Cooked message and the second part of this brand new series sees him visiting Trim Castle, The Dublin Horse Show and even Dublin Zoo.
Donal will be taking inspiration from home and abroad and introducing us to lots of mouth watering recipes, including Seafood Paella, Margarita Chicken, Sausage & Puy Lentil Stew and Tomato Crab Pasta. As well as the dishes Donal cooks for the crowds at the Festivals, he will also make lots of cakes, biscuits and other sweet treats in a section of each programme called Donal’s Home Cooked Bakery.
