This might look like a very impressive cake that took ages to make, but it’s really only an assembly job. Perfect for a dinner party when you're tight on time!

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.

In Neven Maguire's dish the flavour contrasts beautifully with the fish.

Brown Scones

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Brown scones are full of roughage and great for breakfast. And here is a good tip: you can make this mixture, shape the scones and freeze them. You can then cook the scones straight from the freezer to the oven - just give them an extra 5 minutes and make sure the scones are golden brown and well-risen.

Vietnamese Pho with Chicken Dumplings and Pak Choy

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful soup/stew to serve to someone who is feeling a bit under the weather. It might sound exotic, but pak choy is now grown very successfully by Irish farmers. Look for it in the supermarket and make sure you check the label to see where it was grown.

The Best Ever Irish Coffee

I’ve perfected this recipe over time and believe it really is the best ever Irish coffee.

Roast Chicken with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is something very exciting about a whole roast chicken brought to the table - to me it reminds me of family Sunday lunches. The flavours here are really fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken.

Monkfish with Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Sundried Tomato and Saffron Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Monkfish is a firm-textured fish and is very popular with our customers. The velouté goes well with any fish, as its flavour isn't too overpowering. The gnocchi also works well on its own with a Parmesan foam as a starter or light supper.

Potato and Herb Pancakes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My grandmother, Susan Maguire, always made boxty for my family every Halloween and Easter. I look forward to those meals as much as Christmas dinner. This is a modern version of boxty.
