In Donal's own words,
'I’m a self taught home cook who writes and photographs food for a living. I’ve been cooking from an early age and inspired by a family of foodies, food quickly became a way of life.
Good Mood Food was released in October 2009. The success of the book lead on to the world of TV and radio appearances which include Ireland AM, The Afternoon Show, ICE, Nationwide and Market Kitchen in the UK, The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show and The Tubridy Show.
My brand new book Kitchen Hero was released in March 2011 and a the 13 part television series which accompanies it airs in May 2011. I write a regular column for the Irish Independent Weekend Magazine and a weekly column in The Cork News. Donal will return to our screens later this year in a brand new series.
