He's a top TV chef, but Donal Skehan won't be doing the food for his wedding.

The Kitchen Hero star is set to wed his fiancee Sofie Larsson (right) this month, but they have remained tight-lipped about the details.

In the weeks before they tie the knot, Donal will be filming a series with the Food Network.

"I've just signed a two series deal - the first series will see us going to 12 European cities," he told the RTE Guide.

He'll be so busy before the big day that he won't be taking charge of the food.

"I won't be going near the food for my wedding - we have very good friends who have a restaurant in Drogheda called Eastern Seaboard and they're going to be looking after it for us," he said.

"I'll be just back from filming around Europe so I'm looking forward to completely relaxing and leaving that end of things in their capable hands.

"What we've gone for with the food is a very relaxed, family-style dinner rather than silver service."
