Kitchen Hero is a a brand new cookery programme for first time cooks, students, toast burners and take-away regulars, presented by 24-year-old Donal Skehan. The seven part series emphasises the fun and social aspect of food, and the satisfaction that can be had from cooking for, and eating with (attractive, young, and handpicked) friends. Donal's aim is to transform even the most reluctant or nervous cook into a Kitchen Hero... If your friends know you can cook, a casual offer to cook dinner becomes a definite commitment, as Donal discovers after a night out with friends. What's needed is something quick and easy, so Donal prepares Thai Fish Cakes, Teriyaki Salmon with Noodles and a 'mega' Banoffee Pie.
