Roasted confit of duck with marmalade sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with pok choi and beech mushrooms. If you want to serve this marmalade sauce with the duck confit it is a good idea to make a double quantity. It keeps for up to a week in a rigid plastic container in the fridge and it is also s good with roast pork or even chicken.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Smoky Red Pepper Butter

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I hear that less fillet and striploin is being sold these days and rib-eye has become more popular, as it's good value. I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This butter or any of the variations will complement any grilled meat and it looks great. It can be frozen or it keeps happily in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Roast Scallops with Sauce Vierge

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This simple dish uses only the creamy white part of the scallops, but don't let the corals, or roe as they are also known, go to waste.

Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Pineapple Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A real family favourite on our lunch menu, I make this every Christmas for the family and my brother Karlous has been known to eat two or three of them. If you would prefer to cook these in the oven, simply preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush the tops and sides of spring rolls with egg wash and simply arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.
