Baked Eggs with Black Pudding Hash Browns

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

An Irish twist on the classic Oeufs en Cocotte. To make the eggs more exciting, experiment with another flavour addition - a little chopped cooked ham or Parma ham, diced cooked mushrooms, a few herbs or some sliced artichoke heart can all go into the base before you crack in the egg. For a really extravagant addition, add a drop or two of white truffle oil over the cream.

Great with so many dishes.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

This recipe works perfectly well with other fish like Turbot, Cod, Brill and Hake.

Steak with Roasted Peppercorn Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This classic dish is so delicious, it’s no wonder that it has stood the test of time. Use the best dry-aged steaks you can afford and make sure you give them plenty of time to rest before serving them to allow all the juices to settle.

Passion Fruit and Orange Jelly with Vanilla Yoghurt and Granita

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A refreshing palate cleanser in the restaurant, but equally good as a dessert served with a yoghurt ice cream – you can’t beat jelly and ice cream. If you’re serving them as a pre-dessert, put 50ml (2 floz) of the jelly into 75ml (3 floz) shot glasses. Feel free to experiment with other flavours, such as cranberry and orange, apple, vanilla or mango. The granite can be flavoured with ginger beer, raspberry coulis, or strawberry coulis and champagne.

Venison Steaks with Stewed Plums and Roasted Garlic Mash

I love venison and think it’s vastly underrated.

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.

Sundried Tomato Pesto

Go on, make your own! It's easy!

Pizza Tart with Irish Brie

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A versatile tart with all of the familiar pizza flavours but on a crisp puff pastry base. Try to use the all butter puff pastry, which is now widely available, as the flavour is so much better. If you don’t fancy using Brie try slices of mozzarella or goat’s cheese.
