Venison Steaks with Stewed Plums and Roasted Garlic Mash

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I love venison and think it’s vastly underrated.

Pork and Wild Mushroom Wontons with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of the most popular starters in the restaurant, where I sometimes use a chicken mousse with crab as an alternative filling. Packets of wonton wrappers can be found in specialist Asian stores or on the internet. They normally come in packets of about 40, so you can freeze the remainder.

Creamed Leeks

Great with so many dishes.

Assiette of Rare-Breed Pork (Caramelised Belly, Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Fillet and Pork and Leek Sausage)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We always use rare breed saddleback pork, which really has the most wonderful flavour. There are lots of craft butchers now making their own sausages.

Frozen coffee milkshake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A quick and delicious recipe that may have never crossed your mind to make at home!

Gratin of Hake, Prawns and Basil on a Bed of Spinach

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In Neven Maguire's dish the flavour contrasts beautifully with the fish.

Crispy Duck Mango Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

It's great that there is now authentic Chinese aromatic duck readily available in all major supermarkets. It makes this salad quick and easy to make, and the duck can be cooked a couple of hours ahead of time so that all you have to do is toss all of the ingredients together just before you are ready to serve.

Rack of Lamb with Herb Crust, Red Wine Sauce and Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

They say you can taste the flavours of the countryside where a lamb is reared and certainly this is true of the wonderful lamb we get here in Cavan, close to the Sligo border where the flavour of wild garlic sometimes permeates the meat. Irish lamb is best between March and September.

The Raspberry Plate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a signature dessert that has been on the menu for years but is constantly evolving. It was originally given to me by my good friend Neil McFadden. I just love the combination of shortcake and cold buttermilk pudding, and it’s a great dessert for entertaining, as there is a lot that can be done in advance.

Trio of Chocolate (Delice)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This chocolate delice consists of a layer of chocolate sponge, soaked with coffee syrup and chocolate filling. It’s completely delicious served on its own or as part of the trio of chocolate dessert.
