Pork and Wild Mushroom Wontons with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of the most popular starters in the restaurant, where I sometimes use a chicken mousse with crab as an alternative filling. Packets of wonton wrappers can be found in specialist Asian stores or on the internet. They normally come in packets of about 40, so you can freeze the remainder.

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.

Killybegs Fish Pie

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Fish pie is a real staple of Irish family cooking and everyone has their own way of making it. This is my version and usually results in lots of very clean plates when it comes to washing up!

MacNean Eggs Benedict

This is our version of eggs Benedict: a poached egg served on brioche with bacon and a butter sauce, which is much lighter than Hollandaise. We also give customers the option of having it with smoked salmon, or with spinach as the vegetarian option.

Butternut Squash and Pasta Bake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The roasted butternut squash adds a wonderful zap to this pasta gratin, while the mascarpone cheese helps to keep everything really moist. There’s this on going debate about which pasta is better – fresh or dried, and I can honestly say that I think dried is best in most recipes. It uses hard durum wheat, which when cooked gives that lovely ‘bite’ that we talk about when cooking pasta.

Roasted Root Vegetables with Buttermilk Dressing and Coriander Couscous

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dish is delicious hot or cold. Try using any combination of root vegetables you fancy. However, it's important that the vegetables aren't too crowded in the roasting tin, otherwise they'll stew rather than roast. If in doubt, use 2 smaller tins and swap the shelves in the oven halfway through roasting to ensure they cook evenly.
