Crazy busy in London while I shoot the photographs for my new cookbook, love that I get to be creative and take the photographs myself but it does mean a few days away from this little guy!!! See you Friday Noah bear! He’s all bundled up in Sweden with @sofieskehan! 👶🏼👶🏼👶🏼

Comment from Donal Skehan:


When I was about 10 years old I used to steal my aunts copy of Ken Hom’s Chinese Cookery, his first cookbook released in the 80’s and dream of all the recipes I wanted to try from it- not what most 10 year olds were doing but I loved Asian cookery and I was always taken by Ken’s ability to simplify the cuisine yet still create wonderful and authentic dishes. The love went next level when my mom agreed to buying a Ken Hom wok (which apparently 1 in 5 people own throughout the UK and Ireland) and it continued from there! Today I got to cook Chicken & Black Bean sauce, the first dish Ken auditioned for the BBC with, back in the 1983, what a treat! So grateful for the opportunity and in awe of such a lovely man and thankful for all our guests! Really enjoyable show this morning and huge thank you to @chinghehuang @susieandpeter & Stephen Mangan and the whole crew at @Saturday.kitchen! Massive thanks for all the lovely comments- so lovely to resurface from babyland and be reminded just how much fun it all is! 🎉📺🤘🏼

5 bags, 2 people, 1 baby, 1 dog sitter, 6 flights, bottles, car seat, stroller, nappies, gazillion baby grows, minimal sleep, plus a whole lot more running through Sofie’s head for the last week or so and she still manages to look this serene over brunch! Heading to London to shoot the new cookbook and then on to Sweden and Dublin for our families to meet baby Noah- hold on tight- here we go! ✈️ 🇺🇸 🇬🇧 🇸🇪 🇮🇪👪👶🏼🤱🏼

throwbackthursday to me with my dad when I was about two! The weirdest feeling of becoming a parent is that you always thought your parents were old and grown up when you were a kid but in reality they were winging it just as much as we are now! 😂👶🏼👪

Baby and book writing don’t exactly go hand in hand so I’ve been nipping down to the local cafe to get some work done! Doesn’t stop Sofie dropping Max by for some company while she brought Noah out! 🐶🤱🏼 ✍🏼 📖 ☕️

Not sure my lunar eclipse photos turned out exactly the way I wanted, maybe best to stick to the Max photos! 😂 We got high up into the mountains at 5am to catch the spectacular and very rare super blue blood moon eclipse! 🌓🙌🏼🙏🏼

Flights are booked! Heading home to Ireland in a couple of weeks with baby Noah and we cannot wait to get home for a bit! It’s been a little quiet on the instastories this week as I’m in the midst of book writing and planning- we’re shooting in London while we’re over (I’ll be back hosting @saturday.kitchen on the 17th Feb), so still a bit of work to do! But dreaming of these beautiful views in the meantime- schtick on the kettle were coming HOME! 🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪🎉🎉🎉🎉

Pizza night @cosabuona in Echo Park! Lovely little Italian American spot- food was as good as it looks! Great to catch up with @brendaolsn & @joakimolssonla! Had great fun trying to change Noah on a tiny table in the men’s room but he didn’t seem to mind- so nice to get out of the house after 5pm- never thought it would be novelty! 😂 👶🏼 🍕🕺🏼

Huge thank you to the folks at @LandRoverUSA for lending us this beautiful Discovery to ferry around the family over Christmas and into the New Year- Betsy went off into the sunset yesterday while I was out and I didn’t get a chance to say my goodbyes! 😭 Such a lovely car- I’ll miss the massage in the seat the most but sure I can just buy one of those wooden beaded car seat things that were all the rage in the 80’s- it’ll be just the same right? RIGHT?! 🚙🤩😍
