Life is all change for TV host and food writer Donal Skehan. A move to Los Angeles four years ago shook things up, but the real whirlwind was the arrival of his son, Noah, 16 months ago. “I had no idea that it would change our lives as dramatically as it did — but all for the better,” he tells Feelgood. Becoming new parents away from home was also a challenge but Donal and his wife Sofie have now built up a support system and, with family visiting all the time, things have got much easier. It helps that little Noah is following in his father’s footsteps — he’s a little foodie who loves to watch his dad cook. “He’s never been a fussy eater. He’ll try anything from onions to carrots to spicy foods,” his dad says. The couple are also advocates of baby-led weaning, which means they put all kinds of food in front of Noah and let him explore them. "If he’s watched you make it, he’s dying to try it,” the … [Read more...] about Charity begins at home with family for global chef Donal Skehan

By the time Christmas Day comes, many of them will be so sick of the sight of turkey and ham, or of the dishes that feature in the special menus that they have been cooking night after night for the whole month, that they'd probably eat just about anything other than the traditional feast. That's the reason why so many chefs are partial to a nice seafood platter, rib of beef or Beef Wellington come the big day. Hotel chefs, of course, will be working on Christmas Day, and will have to postpone their own celebrations until later. We spoke to three hard-working food workers about what they'll be cooking for their families this Christmas - or what they would be cooking if they weren't working.

From cheap bacon to plant-based priorities and stolen sprout recipes to gastronomy à la leftovers, this is what the UK’s top chefs are up to this Christmas: Adam Handling The Scottish chef behind Covent … [Read more...] about What do top chefs cheat at when making Christmas lunch?
