Air-Dried Beef Carpaccio with Roasted Beetroot and Mustard Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great dish for a dinner party or special occasion and is bound to impress. We source the beef from James McGeogh in Oughterad, Co Galway. He is one of the best craft artisan butchers in the country and does a fantastic mail order service.

Apple Tart with Custard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Homemade apple tart - a winning combination of delicate, sweet pastry filled with heavenly scented apples - simply can't be beaten. To ring in the changes, mix the apples with blackberries or try a mixture of rhubarb and strawberry. To make your tart extra special, add a vanilla pod to your bag of sugar and leave for at least a week before using.

Based on a Thai soup called Tom Kha Gai, this is a hot, spicy, sweet soup made with coconut milk.

Apricot Pudding with Amaretti Custard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This pudding is incredibly easy to make and should take no more than 5 minutes to get into the oven. It's a great store cupboard standby, or you could use fresh ripe apricots that have been skinned if they are in season. Just make sure they are very ripe or they will not cook in the time allowed.

A Study of Shellfish

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of our signature dishes on the menu. It has the perfect balance of texture and flavour from the selection of shellfish. It's a wonderful showcase for the fantastic produce that is harvested from our ocean and our customers love it.

Moroccan Lamb Tagine

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I like to make my tagines a little richer than is traditional in Morocco. This involves browning the meat, frying off the spices, reducing the sauce and cooking it all gently in the oven with the delicious Medjool dates. The flavour of this tagine only improves with time - just leave it to cool completely, then place in the fridge for up to 2 days. This also allows any excess fat to rise to the top so that it can be easily removed. Flaked almonds are sprinkled on top just before serving, as is the custom in the Middle East.

Warm Pear Cake with Frangipane Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Look out for authentic Greek filo pastry for these tarts. If you can, buy it in a 275g packet, which is the perfect amount for the recipe.
