I normally make individual puddings but you can also make one big one.

Prawn Cocktail Canapes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef - Christmas Special

Although prawn cocktail might seem a bit dated, it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Made properly with fresh ingredients, it can make an elegant yet simple starter that no one will forget in a hurry.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat for this recipe, but if you don't have that much, you can easily use some peanut oil or chicken fat to top up the quantity. Of course, you could also use shop-bought duck or goose fat or reuse some that has been stored in the fridge.

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.

Whiskey Sauce

Great on steak.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Cheese and Onion Gratin with Smoky Bacon

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Inspired by the iconic trio of cheese, onion and potato, like the well-loved Tatyo crisp!

Pizza bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Children and adults love this pizza bread that we serve in the restaurant. It’s also great for a barbecue and is just that little bit different. Feel free to vary the toppings depending on what you fancy
