Beef satay with pickled cucumber

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Another one of my family favourites. I have my eldest brother Kenneth to thank for this recipe, which he always makes for a family gathering. It works equally well with chicken or pork and is great cooked on the barbecue

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…

Mulled Fruit Trifle

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My Mum always made this trifle for special occasions when I was growing up. I just loved helping - especially with the cleaning of the bowls - and it definitely inspired me to be a chef. At Christmas I like to decorate the top with pomegranate seeds to make it sparkle like jewels!

Braised Beef Cheek with Roasted Garlic Mash

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ask your local butcher for beef cheeks as you will not find them in the supermarkets. They really are the most tender meat you’ll ever have tasted!

Smoked salmon and cream cheese timbales

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A lovely easy starter with gorgeous flavours. It can be made ahead of time, leaving you to enjoy your guests.

Beef Wellington

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful, classic dish that no one ever seems to tire of and keeps the cost of fillet steak to a minimum. It can be made up to 12 hours in advance and kept covered in the fridge until needed. Just remember to give it a little longer in the oven if you are using it straight from the fridge.

Blueberry and Cream Cheese Citrus Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These tarts can be eaten warm or cold and of course you could use any soft fruit that is in season, or a good store-cupboard standby would be a drained can of apricot slices in natural juice.

Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Soup with Smoked Duck

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Stock up on cans of vacuum-packed chestnuts, which are normally readily available in good delis, shops and large supermarkets at Christmas time. If you want to keep the soup vegetarian, garnish it with some sautéed mushrooms instead of the smoked duck.
