Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice and Dill Pickle Shavings

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Traditionally this was served with buttered noodles, not unlike tagliatelle, but it is so much nicer with fluffy rice. The soured cream is not strictly necessary, and regular cream will work just as well.

For your steak - or bread!

Steak with Roasted Peppercorn Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This classic dish is so delicious, it’s no wonder that it has stood the test of time. Use the best dry-aged steaks you can afford and make sure you give them plenty of time to rest before serving them to allow all the juices to settle.

White and Sweet Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a variation on my favourite accompaniment. It is great for Christmas Day as it can be made in advance and reheated in individual potions on a baking sheet. It also keeps well in a cool oven.

Halibut with a Herb Crust, Potato Purée and Chive Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe works perfectly well with other fish like Turbot, Cod, Brill and Hake.

Spicy Chicken Salad with Avocado Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

For a more formal presentation, spoon the avocado salsa into 10cm (4in) cooking rings set on serving plates and ladle the balsamic cream around each one. Arrange the spicy chicken on top and garnish with a small mound of lightly dressed salad leaves.

Peppered Monkfish and Chinese Greens

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This ginger and soy sauce is also fantastic with roast duck, pork or chicken, but I just love it with the peppered monkfish. If you want to make it into a more substantial dish, simply serve with plain boiled rice.

The Ultimate Cheeseboard with Onion and Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef - Christmas Special

For any cheese lover, the idea of being able to work your way around a selection of contrasting cheeses is one of the best ways of indulging your passion. When putting together a cheeseboard the aim is for a contrast of textures, tastes and shapes. Mild to strong, rounds and wedges, light against dark, soft and hard – it's about making an aesthetic impact as much as a gastrominoc one. The chutney will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Honey and Clove Sauce

A great accompaniment.
