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.

The Ultimate Beef Burger with Crispy Potato Wedges

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good burger has to be made from really good beef. If you can, ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you, but make sure it has 20 per cent fat content, as in effect this will make them self-basting and will prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise, buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don't buy extra-lean mince or the burgers will become tough during cooking.

Pork and Wild Mushroom Wontons with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of the most popular starters in the restaurant, where I sometimes use a chicken mousse with crab as an alternative filling. Packets of wonton wrappers can be found in specialist Asian stores or on the internet. They normally come in packets of about 40, so you can freeze the remainder.

Muesli

This is a great recipe to get the children involved and the best part is that they will be much more lightly to eat it for their breakfast!

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.
