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.

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.

Air-Dried Beef Carpaccio with Roasted Beetroot and Mustard Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great dish for a dinner party or special occasion and is bound to impress. We source the beef from James McGeogh in Oughterad, Co Galway. He is one of the best craft artisan butchers in the country and does a fantastic mail order service.

Pork and Wild Mushroom Wontons with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of the most popular starters in the restaurant, where I sometimes use a chicken mousse with crab as an alternative filling. Packets of wonton wrappers can be found in specialist Asian stores or on the internet. They normally come in packets of about 40, so you can freeze the remainder.

Sticky Toffee Pudding and Salted Whiskey Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant we sometimes serve individual sticky toffee puddings for lunch. It's derived from a recipe my mum often made for Sunday lunch and is still a firm favourite with our family. I just love the combination of hot pudding and sauce against the cold ice cream. Sticky toffee pudding is a classic. When I made it on TV for Home Chef, I really noticed how many people in the restaurant asked for it. It's traditionally thought of as a heavy dessert, but this is a light version. I like to use Medjool dates - they're more expensive but worth it for this dessert. I love their sticky caramel texture and taste.

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.

Salmon and Asparagus Wraps with Rocket Pesto

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Farmed salmon has become much better quality over the years, and in my opinion some of the best available comes from Ireland, where the sea is always freezing cold and for the most part is unpolluted, with strong tidal flows. Make sure your salmon fillets are all even-sized and about 2.5cm (1in) thick to ensure even cooking. They also work well on the barbecue and can be made up to 12 hours in advance, covered with clingfilm and chilled until needed - just don't add the squeeze of lemon juice until you're ready to cook them.

Roast Pumpkin Risotto with Rocket Pesto

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

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.
