Hake with Cassoulet of Beans and Chorizo

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Hake has a lovely soft texture and slight sweetness when it's very fresh. It's highly regarded by chefs, as it offers great value for money. Ask your fishmonger for the hake fillets from the centre cut so that they are nice and chunky. The combination of the chorizo and beans gives this dish a real Spanish flavour.

Brussels Sprout, Red Onion and Bacon Crumble

From: Today

If you are not a fan of Brussels sprouts try using thickly sliced leeks with broccoli or cauliflower instead. This will also make a good vegetarian option for Christmas lunch if you leave out the bacon.

Roasted Vegetable and Chickpea Salad with Feta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The trick to roasting vegetables is not to overcrowd the roasting tin - it should be large enough so that the vegetables can be spread out in a thin layer.

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Mango Chutney

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These can be assembled and cooked 2–3 hours before needed, but no earlier or the wrappers will go soggy.

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.
