Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

Lamb Curry

From: Today

This is a very traditional way of cooking lamb curry in my parents' house. I love the combination of lamb curry, rice and chargrilled tomato chutney. In Nepal, generally, goat meat is more popular than lamb meat but coming to Ireland, I prefer lamb meat to goat as I find goat meat is a little tougher than lamb. We cook any meat - even fish - on the bone as bone adds much deeper flavour to the dish and acts as a natural stock. You won't get that from off-the-bone meat, especially in any curry dishes. Lamb curry is great as leftover, too.

Monkfish with Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Sundried Tomato and Saffron Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Monkfish is a firm-textured fish and is very popular with our customers. The velouté goes well with any fish, as its flavour isn't too overpowering. The gnocchi also works well on its own with a Parmesan foam as a starter or light supper.

Roast Whole Chicken with Sherry, Honey and Dried Fruit Couscous

From: Today

This whole chicken recipe has Moroccan origins. It is a great way of keeping the chicken moist throughout the cooking. You can omit the couscous if you like and start from paragraph 5 in the method. Stuff the chicken with a lemon, a head of garlic, and some rosemary. If you want to use olive oil instead of butter, you can! Furthermore, white wine or cider will also do the job. The best way to cook a whole chicken is to cook it slowly at low temperature for longer and then turn up the oven at the end to achieve the Maillard reaction. You can brine you chicken (8% brine solution) overnight for a more complex flavour, as the brine will help keep the chicken juicy and moist. Brine breaks down the protein and makes for softer meat.

The best of stuff!

Caramelised Chicken with Oranges

Lynda says: "This is one of those dinners that requires minimal work and makes for a great family meal. At the end of the cooking, the chicken pieces are golden and caramelised and have absorbed some of the orangey syrup. I generally serve this with rice and some crunchy vegetables on the side such as green beans, asparagus or purple sprouting broccoli, depending on the season. You may prefer to buy chicken legs and thighs instead of a whole chicken as the bones impart so much flavour."

Upside Down Pear and Ginger Cake

Lynda says: "This pear and ginger dessert is like a tarte tatin, but with a cake base. When the cake comes out of the oven it is flipped upside down, revealing the pears covered by the caramel and ginger syrup."
