Deconstructed prawn cocktail

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A twist on an old classic. When my mother and I were cooking together, it was always one of the most popular dishes. Even today we still get requests from customers for it, so I’ve developed a modern take on it.

Mulled Fruit Trifle

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My Mum always made this trifle for special occasions when I was growing up. I just loved helping - especially with the cleaning of the bowls - and it definitely inspired me to be a chef. At Christmas I like to decorate the top with pomegranate seeds to make it sparkle like jewels!

Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Soup with Smoked Duck

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Stock up on cans of vacuum-packed chestnuts, which are normally readily available in good delis, shops and large supermarkets at Christmas time. If you want to keep the soup vegetarian, garnish it with some sautéed mushrooms instead of the smoked duck.

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This delightful, rich chocolate coffee roulade always goes down a treat, and even if you are watching the calories a little goes a long way…

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Sauce Diane

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This recipe uses my favourite cut, the rib-eye, which is still nice and tender but with enough fat and textures to make for an exciting chew.

Coconut and Lime Meringue Pie

A fabulous pie from Neven Maguire!

Beetroot Borscht with Soured Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Borscht is a classic soup in most parts of Eastern Europe and it was Piotr and Pawel, twin Polish chefs, who first introduced it to my kitchen.

Air-Dried Beef Carpaccio with Roasted Beetroot and Mustard Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great dish for a dinner party or special occasion and is bound to impress. We source the beef from James McGeogh in Oughterad, Co Galway. He is one of the best craft artisan butchers in the country and does a fantastic mail order service.

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.
