MacNean Cheesecake with Raspberries and White Chocolate

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant, we serve this cheesecake with a Jammie Dodger and sometimes a nice Quenelle of Raspberry Sorbet or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. The cheesecake itself is really light, as we use a light cream cheese from Jane and Kieran Cassidy, who run Kilbeg Dairy Delights in Kells, Co Meath. Look out for their products, as they really do have the most wonderful range of soft cheeses and yoghurt. I like to decorate the plate with dried raspberries and baby Maltesers, both of which are available from good catering suppliers.

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Rich and tender pork cheek combines perfectly with sweet, delectable scallops in this easily prepared starter. Although there is some preparation involved, the results are well worth the effort and will have your guests begging for the recipe! Order your pork cheeks from your craft butcher, giving a few days’ notice.

This dessert is perfect for a cold winter’s day and of course you could use honey instead of the golden syrup. It would also be delicious served with some custard…yum…

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

For the very best results, leave the carpaccio at room temperature for a couple of hours before serving to allow the syrup flavours to infuse the pineapple.

Beef Wellington

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful, classic dish that no one ever seems to tire of and keeps the cost of fillet steak to a minimum. It can be made up to 12 hours in advance and kept covered in the fridge until needed. Just remember to give it a little longer in the oven if you are using it straight from the fridge.
