Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat for this recipe, but if you don't have that much, you can easily use some peanut oil or chicken fat to top up the quantity. Of course, you could also use shop-bought duck or goose fat or reuse some that has been stored in the fridge.

The Ultimate Beef Burger with Crispy Potato Wedges

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good burger has to be made from really good beef. If you can, ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you, but make sure it has 20 per cent fat content, as in effect this will make them self-basting and will prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise, buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don't buy extra-lean mince or the burgers will become tough during cooking.

Chicken Liver Pâté with Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe can be prepared ahead and will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge. I love the contrast between the fig jam and the pâté and tend to serve it in the restaurant with some crusty bread and a salad.
