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.

Very quick and easy.

Pork Meatballs

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a fantastic recipe that my good friends at Bord Bia regularly demonstrate. It always goes down a treat with the crowd, so I thought it would be a great one to share with you. I've just slightly reduced the size of the meatballs so that they cook a little quicker in the oven.

Mascarpone is a rich, creamy cheese originating from Lodi in the Lombardy region of Italy. It has a sweetened taste and is a classic ingredient in tiramisu.

Sticky Bacon Chops

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Have you ever seen bacon chops in the supermarket and wondered what to do with them? Well here is a recipe that all the family will enjoy. I'm serving them with crispy rösti, which cleverly disguises lots of nutritious root vegetables.

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

A spectacular prawn dish that's well worth the effort.

Vanilla Crème Brûlée with Poached Irish Apple Compote

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A French classic, and a really creamy and delicious way to end a meal. In the restaurant we like to vary the flavours by using coconut milk, passion fruit or Coole Swan Liqueur. I have my dear friend Léa Linster to thank for this recipe. I normally use a blowtorch, but alternatively place the brulées under a hot grill, watch them like a hawk because they burn very easily. When glazed, they should be a nice mahogany brown colour.

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.
