Spinach and Potato Frittata

From: Four Live

A simple classic which can be dressed up in a million ways

Raspberry Goddess Pie

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This slightly unusual rough and ready pie uses crème fraîche and raspberries as its filling and makes a wonderful summer-time dessert.

Chicken Tagine with Pomegranate

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

This is also good served with bulgur wheat.

Porchetta

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

This is definitely one of my favourite recipes in the book. It’s made using pork shoulder, an inexpensive cut that, when cooked in this manner, results in wonderfully tender meat and crispy crackling. If the idea of rolling and stringing up the shoulder around the stuffing is too much, take the stuffing with you to the butcher when you buy the meat and ask for it to be stuffed and rolled for you. Then it’s simply a case of roasting it.

Summer Berry and Pistachio Pavlova Stack Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

An epic, fruity summer dessert, which can easily be prepared ahead of time and assembled just before you are ready to serve.

Christmas Feast: Honey Mustard Beetroot Gravadlax with Swedish Crisp Bread, Dill Crème Fraîche and Cucumber Pickle

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you are looking for a slightly different starter this Christmas, this salmon gravadlax recipe is an ideal solution and can all be made well in advance, leaving very little to do last minute.

Beer Batter Fish with Pea Mash and Rosti Potato Cakes

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This has to be one of my absolute favourite dinners. It's basically fish and chips, but with a great twist, using crispy rosti potato cakes instead of the more laborious chip. I shallow fry my goujons rather than using a deep fat fryer, with oil I keep in a bottle specifically for this purpose. When you're done and the oil is cold, just fill the bottle up to use again next time.

Irish Omelette

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This might come as a surprise to some people, but I found this recipe in an 18th-century manuscript, spelt 'amulet' (maybe it was considered lucky to eat it), and it is extremely good and filling.

Hot Chocolate

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Donal Skehan's simple recipe for a festive and warming hot chocolate

Chocolate Tiramisu

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

A perfect make-ahead dessert just like Italian mamma used to make... Creamy layers wrapped together with coffee soaked ladyfinger biscuits and dark and white shavings of chocolate - it can't be beat!
