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.

Chocolate Brownie with Fudge Sauce and Caramelised Pecans

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These are intensely chocolatey brownies that get smothered in a rich fudge sauce that is flavoured with - you've guessed it - more chocolate!

Making your own is very easy.

It's very easy to make your own.

Mulled Fruit Trifle

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My Mum always made this trifle for special occasions when I was growing up. I just loved helping - especially with the cleaning of the bowls - and it definitely inspired me to be a chef. At Christmas I like to decorate the top with pomegranate seeds to make it sparkle like jewels!

Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Mediterranean Couscous

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A version of this dish often makes an appearance on our Sunday lunch menu or I have it as an element on the tasting plate of Irish lamb. I just love to showcase the versatility of lamb. Make sure you ask your loval butcher to trim, bone and roll the shoulder for you so that you end up with a nice shape for presentation.

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

Lamb Rogan Josh

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ring of Kerry Lamb is a very new brand, started in 2009 by 35 sheep farmers in Kerry who realised that drastic action had to be taken to avoid the disappearance of the hill farming and shepherding traditions, and to remain in business. They now produce lamb 12 months of the year to meet the year-round demand for 'spring' lamb. Neven meets one of the farmers on his farm near Killarney.

Smoked salmon tagliatelle with Jameson

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

An unlikely pairing, but a delicious one that you simply need to try for yourself!

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.
