Donal Skehan Cooking Demonstration at Avoca

Today a friend and I attended Donal Skehan’s cooking demonstration at Avoca at Malahide Castle. 
 
 
I love the Avoca store and nearly and all the items inside, but  I love him so it was a perfect combo. As I follow him on social media, I feel like I know so much about him even though I don’t know him.

During the two hour session, he demonstrated seven recipes in his new book, Eat. Live Go.

One Pan Singapore Noodles
Moroccan Crispy Chicken Salad
Chocolate Hazelnut Filo Cigars
Five Ingredient Cookies
Chocolate Quinoa Cake with Avocado Mouse
Turmeric Sweet Potato Stew
Thai Omelet

All were so easy to make and looked so yummy!  Going to make some of them asap. He was funny, charming and has such a great personality.  Being so used to being on tv, he knew how to keep going and keep us interested.  He is Ireland’s Jamie Oliver!

In the end, we both bought and had signed and of course, a photo!
Afterwards, we popped around the shop drooling over all the items we wanted to buy including a black Ilse Jacobson raincoat [3/4 in black]at the top of my list.  And ate a yummy lunch  – which was a recipe from his book.   Great day!
A brief glance through the book and so far I’ve really enjoyed it.  It is full of photos from around his travels including food.    I’m going to be making a few of the dishes asap.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

A Boston girl currently living in Dublin, Ireland snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journeys from the USA to the UK. We were there for a couple years then onto Ireland for the past 3+ years. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is 1/2 American & 1/2 Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring Europe and beyond with our two amazing kids. It’s essentially a journal of our family.
