Sole Meunière

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Fish is often forgotten as the ultimate fast food. It is an incredibly quick cooking ingredient and I would normally wax lyrically about just how healthy it is, too. But not in this recipe. No, this recipe is all about the nutty golden brown butter that forms the sauce alongside the tang of lemon juice and the salty hit from the capers. It's a bit of an all-in recipe and if you're going to make it, serve it with some steamed veggies for a delicious dinner.

Mum's Coq au Vin Blanc

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Coq au Vin Blanc was a regular winter dish in my house when we were growing up. I have distinct memories of it steaming up the kitchen windows while we did our homework on the kitchen table. It's a wonderfully warming meal, perfect for cold evenings. Chicken joints such as thighs and legs are often far cheaper to buy than chicken breasts, and meat cooked on the bone always seems to have more flavour.

Banana and Oatmeal Muffins

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

I love to make these muffins for breakfasts and brunches; they are quite filling and a nice start to the day. You could add berries, chopped apple or stir through chocolate chips for an extra hit of sweetness.

Butterflied Rosemary Chicken with Romesco Sauce and Simple Steamed Greens

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Romesco is a fantastic Spanish pepper and nut sauce or salsa, which is a wonderful addition to grilled meat or fish. There are many variations, but essentially you are looking for a sweet, spiky, smoky relish. It's a super accompaniment to my butterflied chicken breasts and steamed greens.

Christmas Feast: Plum and Star Anise-Glazed Ham

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Sweet, sticky and aromatic, this Christmas ham comes with serious sophistication. Like most good Christmas hams this recipe is all about the glaze. The combination of sweet orange, sticky plum jam and Asian star anise ticks all the boxes in terms of Christmas tastes.

Blackberry Amber

From: Kitchen Hero: Rediscovering The Irish Kitchen

This is a very good way to serve blackberries as the top of the dessert is both soft and crisp. Apple can also be used.

Banana Bread with Almond Butter and Chocolate Chips

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

These mini banana bread loaves are deliciously moist and are extremely easy to throw together. I’ve added some chocolate chips to this recipe but you could use some toasted chopped nuts instead if you prefer. This recipe will also fill a 900ml loaf tin and will take about 50 minutes to cook in the oven.
