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 is 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.

If you do not have a mini blender or liquidiser to make the rocket pesto, just finely chop the rocket using a large sharp knife and stir in the Parmesan and olive oil until combined.

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.

Baked Alaska

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is my twin brother David’s favourite dessert. Whenever he comes to the restaurant, we always make this for him and it often even graces the table at Christmas. You’re going to be using shop-bought ice cream and cake, so it’s worth spending a little time making a perfect shape for the meringue to pipe on

Cointreau Infused Strawberry Meringues

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These meringues have a crisp exterior and delicious, marshmallow-like centres. They will keep for at least one week in an airtight container, just add the strawberry topping just before serving or the meringues will go soft.

It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world
