Crispy Goat’s Cheese with Beetroot Panna Cotta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat’s cheese, simply cook it a pre-heated oven (180°C/Gas 4) for another 5-10 minutes – until warmed through and soft. We use a rectangular silicone mould to make the panna cotta in, which are available from both catering shops and online.

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.

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.

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.

Smoked Bacon Frittata with Parmesan

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

It's important not to overbeat the eggs or the texture of this frittata will become tough. Serve it with some sliced flat mushrooms that have been sautéed in garlic butter to make this into a very special breakfast indeed.

Potato Gnocchi

Great comfort food.

Cointreau Infused Strawberry Meringues

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These meringues have a crisp exterior and delicious, marshmallow-like centres. They will keep for at least one week in an airtight container, just add the strawberry topping just before serving or the meringues will go soft.
