Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

Roast Scallops with Sauce Vierge

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This simple dish uses only the creamy white part of the scallops, but don't let the corals, or roe as they are also known, go to waste.

French Onion Soup

This classic French bistro soup is my Mum's favourite so I often find myself making a batch.

Trio of Chocolate (Delice)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This chocolate delice consists of a layer of chocolate sponge, soaked with coffee syrup and chocolate filling. It’s completely delicious served on its own or as part of the trio of chocolate dessert.

Coconut Crème Brûlée with Spun Sugar with Poached Rhubarb

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I use a blowtorch to melt and glaze the brûlée sugar topping until it caramelises, but blowtorches are not for the faint-hearted!

Roast Leg of Spring Lamb with Boulangère Potatoes

This dish is hassle-free - perfect for a dinner party or Sunday lunch.

Rhubarb and Orange Crumble Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This versatile cake is best served warm as a pudding or cold as a teatime treat. I like it with whipped cream but it would also be good with crème fraiche, clotted cream, vanilla ice cream or custard.

Cheese and Onion Gratin with Smoky Bacon

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Inspired by the iconic trio of cheese, onion and potato, like the well-loved Tatyo crisp!

Smoked Belly of Pork with Creamed White Beans and Date Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We get this smoked pork belly from our excellent local craft butcher, Kevin McGovern, based in Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. It’s coal smoked and has a very similar taste to kassler, the German dish, which is traditionally served with sauerkraut. Use any leftover trimmings for pasta Carbonara. The braising juice can be used for a celeriac soup or can be frozen.
