Tart Tatin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a very impressive dessert to get done in such a short time, but it's definitely achievable by using the ready-to-roll puff pastry. Look for the all-butter version, which more supermarkets are now stocking.

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.

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Mango Chutney

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

Roasted Vegetable and Chickpea Salad with Feta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The trick to roasting vegetables is not to overcrowd the roasting tin - it should be large enough so that the vegetables can be spread out in a thin layer.

Baked Eggs with Black Pudding Hash Browns

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

An Irish twist on the classic Oeufs en Cocotte. To make the eggs more exciting, experiment with another flavour addition - a little chopped cooked ham or Parma ham, diced cooked mushrooms, a few herbs or some sliced artichoke heart can all go into the base before you crack in the egg. For a really extravagant addition, add a drop or two of white truffle oil over the cream.
