Goat's Cheese Paté with Apricot Relish

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This sweet and sour relish is the perfect accompaniment for the creamy saltiness of the peppered goat's cheese rolled in fresh herbs.

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.

Vanilla Crème Brûlée with Poached Irish Apple Compote

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A French classic, and a really creamy and delicious way to end a meal. In the restaurant we like to vary the flavours by using coconut milk, passion fruit or Coole Swan Liqueur. I have my dear friend Léa Linster to thank for this recipe. I normally use a blowtorch, but alternatively place the brulées under a hot grill, watch them like a hawk because they burn very easily. When glazed, they should be a nice mahogany brown colour.

MacNean Eggs Benedict

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is our version of eggs Benedict: a poached egg served on brioche with bacon and a butter sauce, which is much lighter than Hollandaise. We also give customers the option of having it with smoked salmon, or with spinach as the vegetarian option.

Sticky Toffee Pudding and Salted Whiskey Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant we sometimes serve individual sticky toffee puddings for lunch. It's derived from a recipe my mum often made for Sunday lunch and is still a firm favourite with our family. I just love the combination of hot pudding and sauce against the cold ice cream. Sticky toffee pudding is a classic. When I made it on TV for Home Chef, I really noticed how many people in the restaurant asked for it. It's traditionally thought of as a heavy dessert, but this is a light version. I like to use Medjool dates - they're more expensive but worth it for this dessert. I love their sticky caramel texture and taste.

Butternut Squash and Pasta Bake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The roasted butternut squash adds a wonderful zap to this pasta gratin, while the mascarpone cheese helps to keep everything really moist. There’s this on going debate about which pasta is better – fresh or dried, and I can honestly say that I think dried is best in most recipes. It uses hard durum wheat, which when cooked gives that lovely ‘bite’ that we talk about when cooking pasta.

Whiskey Sauce

Great on steak.
