Rhubarb and Strawberry Pudding

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Depending on the time of year, you can vary the fruit, or try using a bag of mixed frozen summer berries. We occasionally make this in the restaurant for the kitchen staff for a special treat or in individual portions as part of a more complicated dessert plate.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage and Red Onion Sauté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Confit is a traditional French way of cooking duck. The method is centuries-old - first the meat is cured in salt, then poached in its own fat. Be prepared that this special recipe does take a while, but it's definitely worth it. You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat, available from your butcher or larger supermarkets. If you don't have enough, combine with peanut oil or chicken fat, or just use either of those instead.

Smoked Salmon and Crab Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You can make the pastry case for the tart up to 24 hours in advance, but if you're short of time use shop-bought pastry or a ready-made pastry case instead.

Pork Two-Ways with Creamed Cabbage and Stout Jus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Guinness gets all the coverage (President Obama, the Queen, Arthur's Day) so we decided to look at another stout, Murphy's, brewed in Cork continuously since the mid 1800s. Uniquely, Murphy's uses only Irish barley and Neven learns about how stout is made in the Kiln Bar at the brewery.

The MacNean Celebration Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This cake is a very special treat and is great for all manner of occasions. We get so many customers celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in the restaurant. I love the lightness of the chocolate sponge with the slightly salty peanut frosting. Of course, you can use any flavour of chocolate truffles you fancy. I buy crispy feuilletine but you could always use crumbled tuile biscuits, thin wafers, chopped nuts or toasted, flaked almonds instead.

Air-Dried Beef Carpaccio with Roasted Beetroot and Mustard Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great dish for a dinner party or special occasion and is bound to impress. We source the beef from James McGeogh in Oughterad, Co Galway. He is one of the best craft artisan butchers in the country and does a fantastic mail order service.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Sauce Diane

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This recipe uses my favourite cut, the rib-eye, which is still nice and tender but with enough fat and textures to make for an exciting chew.

Prawn Velouté

Another crowning glory.
