Ravioli of Swiss Chard and Ricotta with Smoked Garlic Foam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dish is a clever way of looking like you have gone to the trouble of making your own pasta. Instead, the secret is to use wonton wrappers, which can be found in Asian supermarkets or on the internet. We have started to grow our own chard for the restaurant. You can also use golden or ruby chard or even baby spinach works very well.

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.
