Donal Skehan is back with a brand new series of recipes to keep the whole family happy – with something old, something new, something borrowed and something to chew.  Having recently returned home to Ireland with his wife Sofie and their two young sons Noah and Oliver from LA,  the move reminded Donal that no matter where you are or what is going on in the world, family life keeps on going, inspiring his brand-new series Donal’s Family Food in Minutes, sponsored by SPAR.

Whether you are celebrating a child’s birthday, cooking a Sunday roast, or simply taking some time out for date night with your partner when the kids have been put to bed, Donal will guide you safely through the hustle and bustle of family life with a show packed full of recipes to refresh your repertoire and impress your loved ones. With ten years under his belt as a TV chef, Donal also has an arsenal of delicious dishes that he will revisit throughout the series as he remasters some of his best-loved recipes. You’ll find all the recipes on this page, with lots of new inspiration added each week during the series.

Tune in on Wednesdays at 8.30pm on RTÉ One.
