A flavoursome marinated pork fillet.

Blueberry and Cream Cheese Citrus Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These tarts can be eaten warm or cold and of course you could use any soft fruit that is in season, or a good store-cupboard standby would be a drained can of apricot slices in natural juice.

Pineapple Carpaccio with Passion Fruit Syrup

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

For the very best results, leave the carpaccio at room temperature for a couple of hours before serving to allow the syrup flavours to infuse the pineapple.

Loin of Lamb in Crisp Potato Crust

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Tarragon Jus with Pea and Mint Puree. This dish can be prepared well in advance as, once wrapped in the potato crust, the lamb will sit happily for an hour or two before roasting.

Vanilla Macaroons with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I got this recipe from one of my pastry chefs, Olivia Raftery, who got it while she was working in Los Angeles. There are so many recipes for macaroons, but this is the best I've used by far. Feel free to experiment with different flavours. If you prefer, the peanut ganache can also be made in a coffee, pistachio and chocolate flavour.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Sauce Diane

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This recipe uses my favourite cut, the rib-eye, which is still nice and tender but with enough fat and textures to make for an exciting chew.

Halibut with a Herb Crust, Potato Purée and Chive Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This recipe works perfectly well with other fish like Turbot, Cod, Brill and Hake.

Crispy Duck Mango Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

It's great that there is now authentic Chinese aromatic duck readily available in all major supermarkets. It makes this salad quick and easy to make, and the duck can be cooked a couple of hours ahead of time so that all you have to do is toss all of the ingredients together just before you are ready to serve.

Baked Alaska

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is my twin brother David’s favourite dessert. Whenever he comes to the restaurant, we always make this for him and it often even graces the table at Christmas. You’re going to be using shop-bought ice cream and cake, so it’s worth spending a little time making a perfect shape for the meringue to pipe on

Gratin of Hake, Prawns and Basil on a Bed of Spinach

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In Neven Maguire's dish the flavour contrasts beautifully with the fish.
