Roast Chicken with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is something very exciting about a whole roast chicken brought to the table - to me it reminds me of family Sunday lunches. The flavours here are really fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken.

Roast Rib of Beef with Garlic and Thyme Potatoes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A rib of beef is an excellent cut for roasting and perfect when you’ve got to feed a crowd. Always allow a joint to come back up to temperature before roasting to achieve the best flavour.

Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Poached Autumn Berries. Panna cotta is a set Italian cream that is a cross between a mousse and a crème brûlée (but without the crunchy topping). What makes this version a little different is the addition of coconut milk, which gives them a truly exotic flavour.

Roasted Root Vegetables with Buttermilk Dressing and Coriander Couscous

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dish is delicious hot or cold. Try using any combination of root vegetables you fancy. However, it's important that the vegetables aren't too crowded in the roasting tin, otherwise they'll stew rather than roast. If in doubt, use 2 smaller tins and swap the shelves in the oven halfway through roasting to ensure they cook evenly.

The MacNean Celebration Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This cake is a very special treat and is great for all manner of occasions. We get so many customers celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in the restaurant. I love the lightness of the chocolate sponge with the slightly salty peanut frosting. Of course, you can use any flavour of chocolate truffles you fancy. I buy crispy feuilletine but you could always use crumbled tuile biscuits, thin wafers, chopped nuts or toasted, flaked almonds instead.

Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Soup with Smoked Duck

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Stock up on cans of vacuum-packed chestnuts, which are normally readily available in good delis, shops and large supermarkets at Christmas time. If you want to keep the soup vegetarian, garnish it with some sautéed mushrooms instead of the smoked duck.
