MacNean Brioche

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The perfect brioche has a delicious rich, buttery flavour, yet it doesn’t leave a trace of butter on your fingertips or an aftertaste on the palate. This is another recipe given to me by my good friend Léa Linster

MacNean Wheaten Bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Everyone claims to have a great family recipe for wheaten bread. I've experimented with a lot of recipes over the years and this is deinitely the best I've tasted to date. It has a lovely sweet flavour but is still very much a savoury bread

Monica's Magic Molten Chocolate Pudding

This is my mom's recipe and it is the easiest, most decadent chocolate pudding. It is like a giant chocolate fondant baked in a lasagne type dish. There are two parts to the recipe, a sponge batter and a sauce. These get made separately and then poured into the dish. They curdle and look strange, but during baking they separate and you get chocolate sponge on the top and a rich dark chocolate sauce underneath. Serve warm with cream or ice cream and fresh or frozen berries. Some of the solid ingredients are measured by volume in millilitres, so use your measuring spoons for small amounts and your measuring jug for larger quantitites.

MacNean Cheesecake with Raspberries and White Chocolate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant, we serve this cheesecake with a Jammie Dodger and sometimes a nice Quenelle of Raspberry Sorbet or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. The cheesecake itself is really light, as we use a light cream cheese from Jane and Kieran Cassidy, who run Kilbeg Dairy Delights in Kells, Co Meath. Look out for their products, as they really do have the most wonderful range of soft cheeses and yoghurt. I like to decorate the plate with dried raspberries and baby Maltesers, both of which are available from good catering suppliers.
