Open Aromatic Duck Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

A great starter or buffet option, from Donal Skehan's Kitchen Hero series

Moroccan Goat Tagine with Bulgur Wheat Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Goat lends itself wonderfully to rich spicing and punchy aromatics, as this tagine demonstrates. It is particularly good if made ahead of time and reheated a day or two later.

Chocolate Orange Tart

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This decadent and delicious chocolate orange tart is perfect for a dinner party dessert. Serve up generous slices on its own or with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream and cups of coffee!

Barmbrack Parfit with Whiskey Prunes

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a very smart dessert that everyone will think you’ve spent ages making. Of course you can spike the prunes with any alcohol but I love the combination of prunes with Irish whiskey.

Cheese & Onion Tart

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This simple but very tasty tart makes an elegant dinner party starter served with some lightly dressed bitter leaf salad. This savoury tart is a wonderful way to celebrate a mature Cheddar cheese and pared with the caramelised onions is a match made in heaven!

Goats Cheese, Red Onion and Thyme Quiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This quiche uses a soft curd goat’s cheese, which is wonderfully smooth and light with clean lemony flavours with hints of flowers and sweetness that develop when pared with the caramelised red onions.

Middle Eastern Spiced Beef and Pickled Cucumber Mint Salad with Beetroot Hummus

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Use the best dry aged steaks you can afford and make sure you give them plenty of time to rest before serving them to allow all the juices to settle.

Asian, French and Herb Dressings

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Incredibly easy, giving maximum taste, these will have you wondering why you didn't make your own salad dressing before.

Betty's Ambrosia Cake

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

One of my favourite things to do is to talk on the topic of food with my granny. Learning to cook armed only with cookbooks and a passion for art, with eight hungry mouths to feed and very little money, my granny developed some of the most resourceful cooking skills I know. I love that with barely anything in the house she can produce something incredibly elegant, such as soufflés, without thinking twice. This is a light and rather sophisticated cake that relies heavily on store-cupboard ingredients and is a perfect example of her skill in being able to produce something incredibly impressive out of everyday items.

Sourdough Tartine with Blue Cheese and Roasted Honey Figs

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Tartines – open sandwiches are absolutely adored by the French. Because they are simple, you need good bread, preferably sourdough, and the best, ripest blue cheese you can find. Serve it with the watercress tossed in vinaigrette made with walnut or hazelnut oil, and some toasted nuts.
