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.

Goat's Cheese Paté with Apricot Relish

This sweet and sour relish is the perfect accompaniment for the creamy saltiness of the peppered goat's cheese rolled in fresh herbs.

Smoked Belly of Pork with Creamed White Beans and Date Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We get this smoked pork belly from our excellent local craft butcher, Kevin McGovern, based in Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. It’s coal smoked and has a very similar taste to kassler, the German dish, which is traditionally served with sauerkraut. Use any leftover trimmings for pasta Carbonara. The braising juice can be used for a celeriac soup or can be frozen.

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

The flavours in this dish are fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken.

Neven Maguire's The Orchard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Apple Panna Cotta with Apple Jelly, Glazed Apple Tart, Apple Crumble and Apple Parfait. This is our signature dessert and a great way to present apples when they’re in season. The idea is to take your taste buds on a journey of lots of different textures and flavours. We call it The Orchard after Co. Armagh.

Apple Tart with Custard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Homemade apple tart - a winning combination of delicate, sweet pastry filled with heavenly scented apples - simply can't be beaten. To ring in the changes, mix the apples with blackberries or try a mixture of rhubarb and strawberry. To make your tart extra special, add a vanilla pod to your bag of sugar and leave for at least a week before using.

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.
