Christmas Feast: Roast Turkey with Cranberry and Sage Stuffing

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

For an easier to carve option this Christmas Day, try this rolled turkey breast, which is stuffed with a sweet and aromatic stuffing. I love the combination of maple, orange, smoked bacon and apple spiked with the cranberries, but you can easily adapt this with your own favourite flavours.

Sofie's rhubarb panna cotta

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

When my girlfriend Sofie was growing up, her grandparents had one of the most amazing vegetable gardens in Sweden, with wild strawberries, and big, bushy apple trees. Huge rhubarb bushes still spring up every year and the last time we visited I made this creamy panna cotta, which is a wonderful way to enjoy some of the summer’s finest rhubarb.

Griddled Beef and Mint Salad with Toasted Rice and Peanuts

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

On my first visit to Bangkok, it was a hot and sticky night when we arrived and this was the dish we tucked into after wandering the streets. The rather interesting addition, to what would otherwise be an ordinary beef dish, is the toasted ground rice, which adds both texture and a surprisingly smoky, nutty flavour. The original dish doesn’t feature the extra leaves, but I think it makes a wonderful healthy salad.

This fragrant and moist cake is not only visually beautiful, it also has the most delicious spiced sweet orange and honey flavour. The cake can be made gluten-free as long as you use a gluten-free baking powder.

Surf & Turf Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Chimichurri is a tangy and fresh Argentinian sauce. It can be made very easily and is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meat and seafood. This is a mighty feast, which is also quite healthy.

Angie’s Skehan Family Irish Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Angie looked after my dad when he was growing up, and when I first started going to school she used to walk me home and give me lunch, which was regularly Irish stew. Her Irish stew is legendary in the Skehan family, with my dad’s five siblings and my eleven cousins all having been brought up on it. Angie always knew how to feed an army of hungry mouths, so I hope this version of the recipe does hers justice!

Ham Hock, Spinach and Cheese Crêpes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Whenever I visit Paris, one of the first things I always order is a 'crêpe avec jambon et fromage'. This recipe is my little twist on that – it makes vibrant green pancakes that are really nice as a brunch or lunch dish. Ham hock is a cheap and tasty alternative to prime slices of ham.
