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

Chocolate Brownie with Fudge Sauce and Caramelised Pecans

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

Salmon and Asparagus Wraps with Rocket Pesto

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Farmed salmon has become much better quality over the years, and in my opinion some of the best available comes from Ireland, where the sea is always freezing cold and for the most part is unpolluted, with strong tidal flows. Make sure your salmon fillets are all even-sized and about 2.5cm (1in) thick to ensure even cooking. They also work well on the barbecue and can be made up to 12 hours in advance, covered with clingfilm and chilled until needed - just don't add the squeeze of lemon juice until you're ready to cook them.

Spicy Chicken Salad with Avocado Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

For a more formal presentation, spoon the avocado salsa into 10cm (4in) cooking rings set on serving plates and ladle the balsamic cream around each one. Arrange the spicy chicken on top and garnish with a small mound of lightly dressed salad leaves.

Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Poached Autumn Berries. Panna cotta is a set Italian cream that is a cross between a mousse and a crème brûlée (but without the crunchy topping). What makes this version a little different is the addition of coconut milk, which gives them a truly exotic flavour.
