His kitchen in LA is sparse. Donal Skehan, TV chef and author, has only an old pan, chopping board, wok, spatula and some tongs.

At his own admission, "it's slim pickings but I've served up some pretty decent dinners considering", the 33-year-old Dubliner laughs.

There hasn't been much time for laughter of late as Donal and his Swedish wife, Sofie, prepare to pack up home and bring their two young sons, Noah (2) and Oliver (five months), home from Los Angeles weeks ahead of a scheduled trip.
