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.

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

Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

Celeriac and Baby Carrot Risotto with Sherry Vinegar Caramel and Crispy Potato Rosti

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Risotto is always a popular dish in the restaurant and we usually have a verison on the menu. The sherry vinegar caramel works well with the vegetables and crispy potato rosti. It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world

Roast Pumpkin Risotto with Rocket Pesto

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you do not have a mini blender or liquidiser to make the rocket pesto, just finely chop the rocket using a large sharp knife and stir in the Parmesan and olive oil until combined.

Baked Eggs with Black Pudding Hash Browns

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

An Irish twist on the classic Oeufs en Cocotte. To make the eggs more exciting, experiment with another flavour addition - a little chopped cooked ham or Parma ham, diced cooked mushrooms, a few herbs or some sliced artichoke heart can all go into the base before you crack in the egg. For a really extravagant addition, add a drop or two of white truffle oil over the cream.

Pizza bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Children and adults love this pizza bread that we serve in the restaurant. It’s also great for a barbecue and is just that little bit different. Feel free to vary the toppings depending on what you fancy

Passion Fruit and Orange Jelly with Vanilla Yoghurt and Granita

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A refreshing palate cleanser in the restaurant, but equally good as a dessert served with a yoghurt ice cream – you can’t beat jelly and ice cream. If you’re serving them as a pre-dessert, put 50ml (2 floz) of the jelly into 75ml (3 floz) shot glasses. Feel free to experiment with other flavours, such as cranberry and orange, apple, vanilla or mango. The granite can be flavoured with ginger beer, raspberry coulis, or strawberry coulis and champagne.

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You can substitute the plaice with skate, sole, brill or prawns depending on what is available. Served with a Lemon and Chive Mayonnaise
