Ham, Cheese and Egg Crêpes with Griddled Asparagus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a perfect tea for lots of hungry children, but it would also be a good weekend late breakfast, depending on your mood. It’s the classic way that many crêpe stallholders cook crêpes to order late at night around the major tourist attractions in Paris. They are always very popular, often with long queues, and once you’ve tasted them it’s easy to understand why.

Vietnamese Pho with Chicken Dumplings and Pak Choy

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful soup/stew to serve to someone who is feeling a bit under the weather. It might sound exotic, but pak choy is now grown very successfully by Irish farmers. Look for it in the supermarket and make sure you check the label to see where it was grown.

Oatmeal, Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The inspiration for this recipe was given to me by Mary Flahavan. I like it so much that we now make it up in batches and keep them in Kilner jars in our rooms for guests - in case they're feeling a bit peckish after a long journey but don't want to ruin their dinner.

Steak Sandwich with Chilli Butter

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Here's an idea for something a little bit different the next time you fancy a steak. This steak sandwich with chilli butter is so delicious that it's hard to believe how little time it takes to prepare.

Round off your meal with a rich, textured dessert like this one!

Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice and Dill Pickle Shavings

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Traditionally this was served with buttered noodles, not unlike tagliatelle, but it is so much nicer with fluffy rice. The soured cream is not strictly necessary, and regular cream will work just as well.

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Rosemary and Garlic

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This butterflied leg of lamb is the perfect choice for the barbecue but also works wonderfully in the oven. It would also be nice served with a pile of warmed pitta breads or flour tortillas and a mixed salad in the centre of the table so everyone can help themselves.

Autumn Berry Crumble with Citrus Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A classic combination of autumn berries with a crumble topping. I just love making this in autumn when there are still plenty of berries around.

MacNean Cheesecake with Raspberries and White Chocolate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant, we serve this cheesecake with a Jammie Dodger and sometimes a nice Quenelle of Raspberry Sorbet or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. The cheesecake itself is really light, as we use a light cream cheese from Jane and Kieran Cassidy, who run Kilbeg Dairy Delights in Kells, Co Meath. Look out for their products, as they really do have the most wonderful range of soft cheeses and yoghurt. I like to decorate the plate with dried raspberries and baby Maltesers, both of which are available from good catering suppliers.
