Baked ham and leeks au gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course you could use a cured Parma-type ham in this recipe or replace the Cheddar with Gruyere which also has excellent melting properties.

Singapore Noodles

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of those dishes that is worth taking a trip to the Asian supermarket for, where you'll find Chinese dried mushrooms and shrimps, not to mention a fantastic range of rice noodles to choose from. The finished result will taste better than any Chinese takeaway. If you can't get them, use fresh shiitake mushrooms instead of dried ones and add in a few more fresh prawns.

Beetroot Borscht with Soured Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Borscht is a classic soup in most parts of Eastern Europe and it was Piotr and Pawel, twin Polish chefs, who first introduced it to my kitchen.

Wilted Spinach

Great nourishment.

Muesli

This is a great recipe to get the children involved and the best part is that they will be much more lightly to eat it for their breakfast!

The MacNean Celebration Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This cake is a very special treat and is great for all manner of occasions. We get so many customers celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in the restaurant. I love the lightness of the chocolate sponge with the slightly salty peanut frosting. Of course, you can use any flavour of chocolate truffles you fancy. I buy crispy feuilletine but you could always use crumbled tuile biscuits, thin wafers, chopped nuts or toasted, flaked almonds instead.

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!

Salmon Burger

Great when you're entertaining.

Neven Maguire's The Orchard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Apple Panna Cotta with Apple Jelly, Glazed Apple Tart, Apple Crumble and Apple Parfait. This is our signature dessert and a great way to present apples when they’re in season. The idea is to take your taste buds on a journey of lots of different textures and flavours. We call it The Orchard after Co. Armagh.

Scrambled Eggs with Burren Smoked Salmon

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is nothing nicer than the combination of flavours of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. We are lucky in Ireland to have such great smoked salmon. My favourite at the moment is from the Burren Smokehouse, as I find it very consistent in flavour. They also offer a great mail order service.
