Butternut Squash and Pasta Bake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The roasted butternut squash adds a wonderful zap to this pasta gratin, while the mascarpone cheese helps to keep everything really moist. There’s this on going debate about which pasta is better – fresh or dried, and I can honestly say that I think dried is best in most recipes. It uses hard durum wheat, which when cooked gives that lovely ‘bite’ that we talk about when cooking pasta.

Autumn Berry Crumble with Citrus Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

MacNean Brioche

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The perfect brioche has a delicious rich, buttery flavour, yet it doesn’t leave a trace of butter on your fingertips or an aftertaste on the palate. This is another recipe given to me by my good friend Léa Linster

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!

Queen of Puddings

From: Four Live

This is one of the first things I remember learning to cook at catering college. It’s great if you fancy something sweet but don’t have much in the cupboard.
