Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Donal shows novice cooks how to create really tasty dishes for a variety of occasions, including a BBQ, a romantic dinner, a birthday party, Sunday lunch for the women who taught him how to cook (his mother and grandmother) and a fishing trip.

Donal also returns to the scene of his triumphant Peter Pan show, the Tivoli Theatre, and cooks an after-show party for the cast and crew of this year's panto, Beauty and the Beast.

A nice start to the day

Banana and Oatmeal Muffins: Donal Skehan

Donal says: "I love to make these muffins for breakfasts and brunches; they are quite filling and a nice start to the day. You could add berries, chopped apple or stir through chocolate chips for an extra hit of sweetness."

Donal is a mega pancake fan and these are one of his treat options

Moroccan Chickpea Burgers

Decent burgers from store-cupboard ingredients, who'd have thought? I love these little Moroccan veggie burgers - they have a great, nutty flavour.
