Oatmeal Biscuits

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef - Christmas Special

This recipe was given to me by Mary Flahavan. I liked it so much that we now make it up in batches and keep them in Kilner jars in our rooms for guests in case they're feeling a bit peckish after a long journey but don't want to ruin their dinner!

Cappuccino Cream Chocolate Cake

This might look like a very impressive cake that took ages to make, but it’s really only an assembly job. Perfect for a dinner party when you're tight on time!

Marinated Pork Fillet with Sausage Stuffing

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe is based on a dish that I was taught to cook in college. It's always been a favourite in our house and when I made it again recently, I was surprised at how good it was - I had forgotten. The meat really does need to be marinated overnight to achieve the best flavour.

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.

MacNean Wheaten Bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Everyone claims to have a great family recipe for wheaten bread. I've experimented with a lot of recipes over the years and this is deinitely the best I've tasted to date. It has a lovely sweet flavour but is still very much a savoury bread

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Custard Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If making these tarts when asparagus is not in season, use leeks or sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped fresh tarragon into the cases for a better flavour.

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.

Sausage and red onion soda farls

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Very simple, very tasty and very moreish. I like to use sausages from a good quality butcher as the flavour will always be so much better.
