Sausage and red onion soda farls

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Very simple, very tasty and very moreish. I like to use sausages from a good quality butcher as the flavour will always be so much better.

Fragrant Roast Chicken with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is something very comforting about a whole roast chicken brought to the table - it reminds me of family Sunday lunches from childhood. The flavours here are fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken. Try to buy a free-range or organic chicken, as the flavour is always so much better.

Smoked Belly of Pork with Creamed White Beans and Date Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We get this smoked pork belly from our excellent local craft butcher, Kevin McGovern, based in Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. It’s coal smoked and has a very similar taste to kassler, the German dish, which is traditionally served with sauerkraut. Use any leftover trimmings for pasta Carbonara. The braising juice can be used for a celeriac soup or can be frozen.

Roast Scallops with Sauce Vierge

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This simple dish uses only the creamy white part of the scallops, but don't let the corals, or roe as they are also known, go to waste.

Hake with Cassoulet of Beans and Chorizo

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Hake has a lovely soft texture and slight sweetness when it's very fresh. It's highly regarded by chefs, as it offers great value for money. Ask your fishmonger for the hake fillets from the centre cut so that they are nice and chunky. The combination of the chorizo and beans gives this dish a real Spanish flavour.

Hollandaise Sauce

Making your own is very easy.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat for this recipe, but if you don't have that much, you can easily use some peanut oil or chicken fat to top up the quantity. Of course, you could also use shop-bought duck or goose fat or reuse some that has been stored in the fridge.
