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.

Neven's Seared rib-eye with Jameson

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with mushrooms and roasted garlic mash. John Jameson began distilling whiskey in the 1780s when whiskey production turned from being an illicit, rural activity to a legal, urbanised one. Jamesons is now by far the most successful Irish whiskey, selling more than 3 million cases a year overseas and it's produced in Midleton.

Smoked Salmon and Crab Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You can make the pastry case for the tart up to 24 hours in advance, but if you're short of time use shop-bought pastry or a ready-made pastry case instead.

Blue Cheese and Celery Sauce

Great with so many dishes.

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.
