The Best Ever Irish Coffee

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I’ve perfected this recipe over time and believe it really is the best ever Irish coffee.

Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

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.

Basque Hake with Sizzling Chorizo and Clams

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Packed full of Spanish flavours, I just love this Basque inspired hake dish with a green salad and a nice bottle of crisp dry white wine. Hake is the most popular fish in Spain, but of course you could substitute with cod or haddock with excellent results.

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.

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.

Smoked Belly of Pork with Creamed White Beans and Date Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We get this smoked pork belly from our excellent local craft butcher, Kevin McGovern, based in Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. It’s coal smoked and has a very similar taste to kassler, the German dish, which is traditionally served with sauerkraut. Use any leftover trimmings for pasta Carbonara. The braising juice can be used for a celeriac soup or can be frozen.

Scrambled Eggs with Burren Smoked Salmon

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is nothing nicer than the combination of flavours of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. We are lucky in Ireland to have such great smoked salmon. My favourite at the moment is from the Burren Smokehouse, as I find it very consistent in flavour. They also offer a great mail order service.
