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.

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Rosemary and Garlic

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This butterflied leg of lamb is the perfect choice for the barbecue but also works wonderfully in the oven. It would also be nice served with a pile of warmed pitta breads or flour tortillas and a mixed salad in the centre of the table so everyone can help themselves.

Roasted confit of duck with marmalade sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with pok choi and beech mushrooms. If you want to serve this marmalade sauce with the duck confit it is a good idea to make a double quantity. It keeps for up to a week in a rigid plastic container in the fridge and it is also s good with roast pork or even chicken.

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.

A great accompaniment.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pudding

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Depending on the time of year, you can vary the fruit, or try using a bag of mixed frozen summer berries. We occasionally make this in the restaurant for the kitchen staff for a special treat or in individual portions as part of a more complicated dessert plate.

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.
