Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Custard Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If making these tarts when asparagus is not in season, use leeks or sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped fresh tarragon into the cases for a better flavour.

Celeriac and Baby Carrot Risotto with Sherry Vinegar Caramel and Crispy Potato Rosti

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Risotto is always a popular dish in the restaurant and we usually have a verison on the menu. The sherry vinegar caramel works well with the vegetables and crispy potato rosti. It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world

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.

MacNean Wheaten Bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Everyone claims to have a great family recipe for wheaten bread. I've experimented with a lot of recipes over the years and this is deinitely the best I've tasted to date. It has a lovely sweet flavour but is still very much a savoury bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These can be assembled and cooked 2–3 hours before needed, but no earlier or the wrappers will go soggy.

Pork Two-Ways with Creamed Cabbage and Stout Jus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Guinness gets all the coverage (President Obama, the Queen, Arthur's Day) so we decided to look at another stout, Murphy's, brewed in Cork continuously since the mid 1800s. Uniquely, Murphy's uses only Irish barley and Neven learns about how stout is made in the Kiln Bar at the brewery.

Stir Fried Ginger Pork

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great way to prepare green vegetables. Stir-frying keeps their crunch while the hot sauce gives them a rich, almost nutty flavour. Choose one or a selection of the wide range of greens now readily available, such as tender stem broccoli, sugar snap peas, French beans, mangetout, spinach, Swiss chard, Chinese pak choy or choi sum, or even finely shredded cabbage works well.

Chilli Jam

A great treat or gift.
