Instant Strawberry Ice Cream Sundae

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Watch children’s faces light up as you make these ice cream sundaes before their very eyes! The ice cream is so much better for them than anything you can buy, contains so little fat and has a really fresh flavour. If there are any adults around, they’ll be guaranteed to enjoy it just as much. Try using raspberries, which work just as well.

Lords and Ladles Birr Castle Menu

Here are Sunday's recipes - the Birr castle menu of Lords and Ladles.

Crispy Squid and Chorizo Salad with Deconstructed Guacamole

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This has to be one of the most delicious salads I’ve ever tasted. It packs a powerful flavour punch that you’ll find yourself carving…you have been warned!

Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Peas and Mozzarella

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you find the thought of making homemade pasta daunting, gnocchi is a good stepping-stone. You could use store bought gnocchi, though, if you don’t feel up to it. Either way, the combination of golden gnocchi nuggets with creamy mozzarella, sweet garden peas and a drizzling of flavoured butter is a breath of summer air. This makes a superb starter or a light supper.

Crispy Golden Eggs with Black Pudding, Pan-Fried Boxty and Crisp Apple Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

A starter or light supper dish that puts a modern twist on the traditional combination of boxty, black pudding and eggs. The eggs can be prepared well in advance and just deep-fried at the last minute.

Glazed Spiced Venison with Forest Mushrooms and Sweet Potato Mash

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

The delicate flavour of the venison is complemented by the gutsy sweet potato mash and sauté of wild mushrooms. Most supermarkets now stock a decent range including chanterelle, oyster, chestnut and if you’re very lucky ceps (porcini) if they’re in season.

Affogato al Caffè with Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Biscotti

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Affogato is good at any time of year and it is an incredibly easy dessert to prepare. Choose the best vanilla ice cream you can find and make sure you use good, strong espresso (regular brewed coffee will not work here). The recipe for the biscotti makes about 30 but they keep very well in an airtight container.

Beer Batter Fish Tacos with Cherry Tomato Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a great recipe of tortillas filled with shallow fried fish goujons, tomato salsa, a little soured cream and some salad. Perfect served with ice cold beer for the grown ups…

Carrot & Courgette Cake with Rosemary & Orange Crème Fraiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

Carrot, courgette and cardamom are a wonderful combination of flavours. The cake itself is moist enough but for that extra special touch you can add the delicious rosemary & orange crème fraiche. If you want to go all out, you can make mini carrots and courgettes out of marzipan with a little orange and green food colouring and angelica root for the stalks. This cake will keep in the fridge for 3–5 days.
