Cointreau Infused Strawberry Meringues

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These meringues have a crisp exterior and delicious, marshmallow-like centres. They will keep for at least one week in an airtight container, just add the strawberry topping just before serving or the meringues will go soft.

French Apple Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The best way to arrange the apples in the tin is to start at the perimeter, in a pinwheel fashion, filling the middle after a full circle of slices is in place.

Great with so many dishes.

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.

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

Coffee and cardamom cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe was inspired by a recent trip to An Cupan Tae in Galway. Serve with pistachio cream

Look as great as they taste.

Neven's Seared rib-eye with Jameson

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with mushrooms and roasted garlic mash. John Jameson began distilling whiskey in the 1780s when whiskey production turned from being an illicit, rural activity to a legal, urbanised one. Jamesons is now by far the most successful Irish whiskey, selling more than 3 million cases a year overseas and it's produced in Midleton.

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.

Blueberry and Cream Cheese Citrus Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These tarts can be eaten warm or cold and of course you could use any soft fruit that is in season, or a good store-cupboard standby would be a drained can of apricot slices in natural juice.
