Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Smoky Red Pepper Butter

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I hear that less fillet and striploin is being sold these days and rib-eye has become more popular, as it's good value. I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This butter or any of the variations will complement any grilled meat and it looks great. It can be frozen or it keeps happily in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

This is a great recipe to get the children involved and the best part is that they will be much more lightly to eat it for their breakfast!

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.

It's very easy to make your own.

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.

Lamb Rogan Josh

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ring of Kerry Lamb is a very new brand, started in 2009 by 35 sheep farmers in Kerry who realised that drastic action had to be taken to avoid the disappearance of the hill farming and shepherding traditions, and to remain in business. They now produce lamb 12 months of the year to meet the year-round demand for 'spring' lamb. Neven meets one of the farmers on his farm near Killarney.

Baked Pears with Walnuts and Golden Syrup

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dessert is perfect for a cold winter’s day and of course you could use honey instead of the golden syrup. It would also be delicious served with some custard…yum…

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.

Vanilla Macaroons with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I got this recipe from one of my pastry chefs, Olivia Raftery, who got it while she was working in Los Angeles. There are so many recipes for macaroons, but this is the best I've used by far. Feel free to experiment with different flavours. If you prefer, the peanut ganache can also be made in a coffee, pistachio and chocolate flavour.
