Poached Plums with Amaretti

Served with Lemon Mascarpone. This stunning dessert will really make your guests impressed! However, it is actually extremely simple to prepare and can be done well in advance leaving you to enjoy your meal.

Neven Maguire's The Orchard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Apple Panna Cotta with Apple Jelly, Glazed Apple Tart, Apple Crumble and Apple Parfait. This is our signature dessert and a great way to present apples when they’re in season. The idea is to take your taste buds on a journey of lots of different textures and flavours. We call it The Orchard after Co. Armagh.

Baked Alaska

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is my twin brother David’s favourite dessert. Whenever he comes to the restaurant, we always make this for him and it often even graces the table at Christmas. You’re going to be using shop-bought ice cream and cake, so it’s worth spending a little time making a perfect shape for the meringue to pipe on

This recipe was inspired by a recent trip to An Cupan Tae in Galway. Serve with pistachio cream

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.

Another crowning glory.

Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

Fillet of Dry-aged Beef with Braised Blade and Celeriac Purée

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Beef is our number one seller in the restaurant and we sell more fillet than any other cut. However, I’ve recently discovered the blade of beef – which has an excellent flavour and offers great value. First we braise it before shaping and leaving overnight to firm up, which creates a lovely round for presentation
