Loin of Lamb in Crisp Potato Crust

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Tarragon Jus with Pea and Mint Puree. This dish can be prepared well in advance as, once wrapped in the potato crust, the lamb will sit happily for an hour or two before roasting.

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.

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.

This is one of our signature dishes on the menu. It has the perfect balance of texture and flavour from the selection of shellfish. It's a wonderful showcase for the fantastic produce that is harvested from our ocean and our customers love it.

Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice and Dill Pickle Shavings

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Traditionally this was served with buttered noodles, not unlike tagliatelle, but it is so much nicer with fluffy rice. The soured cream is not strictly necessary, and regular cream will work just as well.

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Coconut Crème Brûlée with Spun Sugar with Poached Rhubarb

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I use a blowtorch to melt and glaze the brûlée sugar topping until it caramelises, but blowtorches are not for the faint-hearted!
