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.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pudding

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Depending on the time of year, you can vary the fruit, or try using a bag of mixed frozen summer berries. We occasionally make this in the restaurant for the kitchen staff for a special treat or in individual portions as part of a more complicated dessert plate.

Pizza bread

Children and adults love this pizza bread that we serve in the restaurant. It’s also great for a barbecue and is just that little bit different. Feel free to vary the toppings depending on what you fancy

Sea Bass with Chorizo Cassoulet

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe has a real Spanish flavour and is very easy to prepare. This way of cooking fish retains the goodness and keeps the fish moist. Fish has become expensive, but sea bass has remained good value, as it is nearly all farmed these days. Line-caught sea bass is now a very rare and highly-prized fish.

Crispy Goat's Cheese with Apple and Hazelnut Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat's cheese, simply cook it in an oven preheated to 180°C (350°F/gas mark 4) for another 5-10 minutes, until warmed through and soft. Look for Irish apples in the supermarket, particularly when they are in season, and if they're not there, ask the manager why! Apples are one of our few indigenous fruits and there is no excuse for the shops not supporting Irish farmers.

Autumn Berry Crumble with Citrus Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A classic combination of autumn berries with a crumble topping. I just love making this in autumn when there are still plenty of berries around.
