Queen of Puddings

From: Four Live

This is one of the first things I remember learning to cook at catering college. It’s great if you fancy something sweet but don’t have much in the cupboard.

Roast Chicken with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

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

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.

A Study of Shellfish

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of our signature dishes on the menu. It has the perfect balance of texture and flavour from the selection of shellfish. It's a wonderful showcase for the fantastic produce that is harvested from our ocean and our customers love it.

Soufflé Omelette with Smoked Haddock

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is actually very similar to the classic omelette Arnold Bennett. Properly cooked, it is absolutely delicious and I've no doubt your guests will savour every mouthful. If you are really short of time, substitute smoked mackerel fillets and flake as for the recipe, which will save you having to poach the fish.

Vera’s Seafood Chowder

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a very filling soup that is actually a recipe of my mum's that we have been making on and off in the restaurant for years. Use the very best quality fish and shellfish for the best flavour

Baked ham and leeks au gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course you could use a cured Parma-type ham in this recipe or replace the Cheddar with Gruyere which also has excellent melting properties.

The Ultimate Beef Burger with Crispy Potato Wedges

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good burger has to be made from really good beef. If you can, ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you, but make sure it has 20 per cent fat content, as in effect this will make them self-basting and will prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise, buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don't buy extra-lean mince or the burgers will become tough during cooking.

Garlic Confit

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Very easy to make.
