Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

Pork Two-Ways with Creamed Cabbage and Stout Jus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Guinness gets all the coverage (President Obama, the Queen, Arthur's Day) so we decided to look at another stout, Murphy's, brewed in Cork continuously since the mid 1800s. Uniquely, Murphy's uses only Irish barley and Neven learns about how stout is made in the Kiln Bar at the brewery.

Smoked Salmon and Crab Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You can make the pastry case for the tart up to 24 hours in advance, but if you're short of time use shop-bought pastry or a ready-made pastry case instead.

The Raspberry Plate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a signature dessert that has been on the menu for years but is constantly evolving. It was originally given to me by my good friend Neil McFadden. I just love the combination of shortcake and cold buttermilk pudding, and it’s a great dessert for entertaining, as there is a lot that can be done in advance.

Braised Beef Cheek with Roasted Garlic Mash

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ask your local butcher for beef cheeks as you will not find them in the supermarkets. They really are the most tender meat you’ll ever have tasted!

Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Soup with Smoked Duck

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Stock up on cans of vacuum-packed chestnuts, which are normally readily available in good delis, shops and large supermarkets at Christmas time. If you want to keep the soup vegetarian, garnish it with some sautéed mushrooms instead of the smoked duck.

Lamb samosas with raita

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A delicious crispy samosa served with a mint yoghurt dip.

Sticky Toffee Pudding and Salted Whiskey Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant we sometimes serve individual sticky toffee puddings for lunch. It's derived from a recipe my mum often made for Sunday lunch and is still a firm favourite with our family. I just love the combination of hot pudding and sauce against the cold ice cream. Sticky toffee pudding is a classic. When I made it on TV for Home Chef, I really noticed how many people in the restaurant asked for it. It's traditionally thought of as a heavy dessert, but this is a light version. I like to use Medjool dates - they're more expensive but worth it for this dessert. I love their sticky caramel texture and taste.
