Onion Tart Tatin

Look as great as they taste.

Chicken Liver Pâté with Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe can be prepared ahead and will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge. I love the contrast between the fig jam and the pâté and tend to serve it in the restaurant with some crusty bread and a salad.

MacNean porridge with Irish Mist and honey

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Porridge is one of our most popular breakfasts in the restaurant, and this recipe goes down a treat. On cold winter mornings, it gets you off to a good start and takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare.

Garlic Confit

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Very easy to make.

Apple and Almond Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The best way to arrange the apples in the tin is to start at the perimeter, in a pinwheel fashion, filling the middle after a full circle of slices is in place.

Coconut Crème Brûlée with Spun Sugar with Poached Rhubarb

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I use a blowtorch to melt and glaze the brûlée sugar topping until it caramelises, but blowtorches are not for the faint-hearted!

Crispy Duck Mango Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

It's great that there is now authentic Chinese aromatic duck readily available in all major supermarkets. It makes this salad quick and easy to make, and the duck can be cooked a couple of hours ahead of time so that all you have to do is toss all of the ingredients together just before you are ready to serve.

Lamb samosas with raita

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A delicious crispy samosa served with a mint yoghurt dip.

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.

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.
