‘No regrets’: Cookery star dane Cook on how her son is a success story
Cooks are still doing it all.
From the first step of starting a family, to the most recent, it’s a lifelong journey.
Dane Cook has been in this business for over 30 years, making her the youngest cook in the history of Ireland.
She was born on May 14, 1977 in Cork and is now based in Galway, where she is also a successful restaurateur.
Cooks say she has had a huge impact on the lives of her two children.
Dannie, 5, is the eldest, while her older brother Daniel, 11, is a budding chef.
Dane’s first book, Cooking Mama Cookstar, is set in the early 1990s and tells the story of the rise of cooking in Ireland.
She says the book has inspired her to continue cooking in a professional manner.
“I’ve always had an appreciation for food and I feel very proud of the fact that I’m doing what I do now,” she says.
Her children, Daniel and Dannise, now have their own cooking ventures. “
I’m very good at making food, but not very talented at it.”

They also cook in their own kitchens.
Cooking Mama Cookstars is set to be released in the autumn, and has sold more than 10 million copies in the UK.
It was a huge hit in the US, where it won the Golden Egg award for best book of 2011.
Cook, who has also written cookbooks for her children, says she is grateful to the people of Cork for helping her launch the book.
“We’ve had a very good response to it and people have been really supportive.
I think the response has been amazing, as well,” she said.”
There are people in the community that know me and I have some really good people to thank for that.”
She also says that she has received messages of support from friends and family.
“It’s been really good, because the support has come from my family, friends and people in Cork who know me, who are really supportive,” she explained.
“They’ve been very understanding of my situation and that I’ve done what I’m about.”
Cook is the youngest of five children, who grew up on the same street as her father, Dann Cook.
Her father, who is also the founder of Cook’s Irish Kitchen, started the restaurant with his wife when she was just eight.
The family have four children, but Dane is the one who has had the most impact on her children.
Dannie was born in 1996 and currently attends St. Mary’s Grammar School in Cork.
Danes youngest son, Daniel, started school at age eight.
Daniel, who graduated with a degree in Food Technology, has also been at the forefront of his father’s culinary career.
He currently works for the National School of Culinary Arts in Cork, while Dannize is a chef and has been at Cook’s family business for five years.
“The boys have always been my breadwinners,” Danniz said.
The Cooks’ children also make a difference, especially with their own children. “
That’s a very important thing for my boys.”

Dani, who was born two years later, is now a professional chef.
“She’s been the one to start cooking, to start putting a smile on people’s faces,” she added.
“She’s just really helped my kids grow and develop.
It’s been great.”
