White and Sweet Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a variation on my favourite accompaniment. It is great for Christmas Day as it can be made in advance and reheated in individual potions on a baking sheet. It also keeps well in a cool oven.

MacNean Wheaten Bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Everyone claims to have a great family recipe for wheaten bread. I've experimented with a lot of recipes over the years and this is deinitely the best I've tasted to date. It has a lovely sweet flavour but is still very much a savoury bread

Celeriac and Baby Carrot Risotto with Sherry Vinegar Caramel and Crispy Potato Rosti

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Risotto is always a popular dish in the restaurant and we usually have a verison on the menu. The sherry vinegar caramel works well with the vegetables and crispy potato rosti. It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world

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.

Halibut with a Herb Crust, Potato Purée and Chive Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe works perfectly well with other fish like Turbot, Cod, Brill and Hake.

Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Mediterranean Couscous

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A version of this dish often makes an appearance on our Sunday lunch menu or I have it as an element on the tasting plate of Irish lamb. I just love to showcase the versatility of lamb. Make sure you ask your loval butcher to trim, bone and roll the shoulder for you so that you end up with a nice shape for presentation.

Pork fillet basil and pine nuts

A flavoursome marinated pork fillet.

Lamb Pitta Pockets

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a very speedy supper that literally takes no time to prepare. Use any type of curry paste that is available or a heaped teaspoon of mild curry powder would also work well.

Monkfish with Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Sundried Tomato and Saffron Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Monkfish is a firm-textured fish and is very popular with our customers. The velouté goes well with any fish, as its flavour isn't too overpowering. The gnocchi also works well on its own with a Parmesan foam as a starter or light supper.
