Whiskey Sauce

Great on steak.

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.

Fillet of Dry-aged Beef with Braised Blade and Celeriac Purée

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Beef is our number one seller in the restaurant and we sell more fillet than any other cut. However, I’ve recently discovered the blade of beef – which has an excellent flavour and offers great value. First we braise it before shaping and leaving overnight to firm up, which creates a lovely round for presentation

Beef satay with pickled cucumber

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Another one of my family favourites. I have my eldest brother Kenneth to thank for this recipe, which he always makes for a family gathering. It works equally well with chicken or pork and is great cooked on the barbecue

Salmon and Asparagus Wraps

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Make sure your salmon fillets are at all even-sized and about 2.5cm (1in) thick to ensure even cooking.

Easy to make your own.

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.

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.

Basque Hake with Sizzling Chorizo and Clams

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Packed full of Spanish flavours, I just love this Basque inspired hake dish with a green salad and a nice bottle of crisp dry white wine. Hake is the most popular fish in Spain, but of course you could substitute with cod or haddock with excellent results.
