Neven Maguire's The Orchard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Apple Panna Cotta with Apple Jelly, Glazed Apple Tart, Apple Crumble and Apple Parfait. This is our signature dessert and a great way to present apples when they’re in season. The idea is to take your taste buds on a journey of lots of different textures and flavours. We call it The Orchard after Co. Armagh.

Rump of Local Lamb with Pea Purée and Rosemary Jus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We often put this on our Sunday lunch menu when lamb is in season, as it’s a delicious cut of meat that offers good value. We have just started growing broad beans, which I’m very excited about. A little goes a long way and they add an extra dimension to the rosemary jus.

The Raspberry Plate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a signature dessert that has been on the menu for years but is constantly evolving. It was originally given to me by my good friend Neil McFadden. I just love the combination of shortcake and cold buttermilk pudding, and it’s a great dessert for entertaining, as there is a lot that can be done in advance.

Duck Confit with Crispy Fried Vegetables

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

One of my favourite recipes, duck is always so popular in the restaurant that whenever we have it on the menu it almost always sells out. If you don’t have time to cook your own you can buy a very good product from Silverhill in Monaghan, which is readily available.

Trio of Chocolate (Warm Fondant and Opera Cake)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

One of our signature dishes – this has all the elements of chocolate. It’s on the Prestige Menu in the Restaurant. Stephen, my head pastry chef, takes great pride in his chocolate work and this dessert really showcases it.
