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.

Chicken casserole with Bulmers

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

When you are in the mood for a real winter warmer that has tonnes of flavour, appeals to all the family and takes very little time to get in the oven compared to traditional casseroles, you can’t go far wrong with this recipe.

You can also use the mussels to create a soup, as shown by Neven in this episode of Home Chef

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.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Smoky Red Pepper Butter

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I hear that less fillet and striploin is being sold these days and rib-eye has become more popular, as it's good value. I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This butter or any of the variations will complement any grilled meat and it looks great. It can be frozen or it keeps happily in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Baked ham and leeks au gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course you could use a cured Parma-type ham in this recipe or replace the Cheddar with Gruyere which also has excellent melting properties.

Venison Steaks with Stewed Plums and Roasted Garlic Mash

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I love venison and think it’s vastly underrated.

MacNean Cheesecake with Raspberries and White Chocolate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant, we serve this cheesecake with a Jammie Dodger and sometimes a nice Quenelle of Raspberry Sorbet or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. The cheesecake itself is really light, as we use a light cream cheese from Jane and Kieran Cassidy, who run Kilbeg Dairy Delights in Kells, Co Meath. Look out for their products, as they really do have the most wonderful range of soft cheeses and yoghurt. I like to decorate the plate with dried raspberries and baby Maltesers, both of which are available from good catering suppliers.

Baked Pears with Walnuts and Golden Syrup

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dessert is perfect for a cold winter’s day and of course you could use honey instead of the golden syrup. It would also be delicious served with some custard…yum…
