Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

MacNean Cheesecake with Raspberries and White Chocolate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant, we serve this cheesecake with a Jammie Dodger and sometimes a nice Quenelle of Raspberry Sorbet or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. The cheesecake itself is really light, as we use a light cream cheese from Jane and Kieran Cassidy, who run Kilbeg Dairy Delights in Kells, Co Meath. Look out for their products, as they really do have the most wonderful range of soft cheeses and yoghurt. I like to decorate the plate with dried raspberries and baby Maltesers, both of which are available from good catering suppliers.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Roast Chicken with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is something very exciting about a whole roast chicken brought to the table - to me it reminds me of family Sunday lunches. The flavours here are really fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken.

Halibut with a Herb Crust, Potato Purée and Chive Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe works perfectly well with other fish like Turbot, Cod, Brill and Hake.

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.

Apple Chutney

Great as a gift too!
