Neven's Seared rib-eye with Jameson

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with mushrooms and roasted garlic mash. John Jameson began distilling whiskey in the 1780s when whiskey production turned from being an illicit, rural activity to a legal, urbanised one. Jamesons is now by far the most successful Irish whiskey, selling more than 3 million cases a year overseas and it's produced in Midleton.

Courgette rosti

A delicious way of cooking courgettes.

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.

Rack of Lamb with Herb Crust, Red Wine Sauce and Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

They say you can taste the flavours of the countryside where a lamb is reared and certainly this is true of the wonderful lamb we get here in Cavan, close to the Sligo border where the flavour of wild garlic sometimes permeates the meat. Irish lamb is best between March and September.

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.

Chocolate and hazelnut roulade with raspberries

This delightful, rich chocolate coffee roulade always goes down a treat, and even if you are watching the calories a little goes a long way…

Beef satay with pickled cucumber

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Another one of my family favourites. I have my eldest brother Kenneth to thank for this recipe, which he always makes for a family gathering. It works equally well with chicken or pork and is great cooked on the barbecue

Braised Lamb Shanks with Barley and Rosemary

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is wonderful for cold days and perfect for serving when you want to relax and enjoy the company with no last minute hurdles.

Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Poached Autumn Berries. Panna cotta is a set Italian cream that is a cross between a mousse and a crème brûlée (but without the crunchy topping). What makes this version a little different is the addition of coconut milk, which gives them a truly exotic flavour.
