Toasted Coconut and Malibu Parfait with Pineapple Carpaccio and Coconut Sorbet

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A great summer dessert that reminds me of the tropics and is beautiful to look at. The parfait is actually incredibly light and wonderfully refreshing when served with the pineapple carpaccio.

French Onion Soup

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This classic French bistro soup is my Mum's favourite so I often find myself making a batch.

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.

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Mango Chutney

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These can be assembled and cooked 2–3 hours before needed, but no earlier or the wrappers will go soggy.

Peppered Monkfish and Chinese Greens

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This ginger and soy sauce is also fantastic with roast duck, pork or chicken, but I just love it with the peppered monkfish. If you want to make it into a more substantial dish, simply serve with plain boiled rice.

Jean's Chocolate Biscuit Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe was given to me by Jean Dix from Howth, Co. Dublin whose recipe cannot be beaten although many have tried…It cuts beautifully even straight out of the fridge and keeps well wrapped in clingfilm for at least two weeks. It is a great one to do with the children as there is no cooking involved and the great thing about it is that it can be put into any shape you like depending on your requirements.

Caramel Foam

That wow factor for your dishes.

Beef Wellington

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful, classic dish that no one ever seems to tire of and keeps the cost of fillet steak to a minimum. It can be made up to 12 hours in advance and kept covered in the fridge until needed. Just remember to give it a little longer in the oven if you are using it straight from the fridge.

Chicken Liver Pâté with Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe can be prepared ahead and will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge. I love the contrast between the fig jam and the pâté and tend to serve it in the restaurant with some crusty bread and a salad.

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.
