Crispy Goat's Cheese with Apple and Hazelnut Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat's cheese, simply cook it in an oven preheated to 180°C (350°F/gas mark 4) for another 5-10 minutes, until warmed through and soft. Look for Irish apples in the supermarket, particularly when they are in season, and if they're not there, ask the manager why! Apples are one of our few indigenous fruits and there is no excuse for the shops not supporting Irish farmers.

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.

Of course these boxty farls can be served with a variety of toppings, try splitting and spreading with a little butter, then top with black pudding and a scattering of your favourite blue cheese, then add a of onion marmalade to serve. Alternatively try smoked smoked salmon, rocket and a horseradish dressing or flash crispy bacon, cubes of Cheddar and finely chopped scallions under the grill until bubbling.
