Braised red cabbage with cranberry

A tasty side dish to complete a big Christmas get-together.

Sticky Toffee Pudding and Salted Whiskey Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In the restaurant we sometimes serve individual sticky toffee puddings for lunch. It's derived from a recipe my mum often made for Sunday lunch and is still a firm favourite with our family. I just love the combination of hot pudding and sauce against the cold ice cream. Sticky toffee pudding is a classic. When I made it on TV for Home Chef, I really noticed how many people in the restaurant asked for it. It's traditionally thought of as a heavy dessert, but this is a light version. I like to use Medjool dates - they're more expensive but worth it for this dessert. I love their sticky caramel texture and taste.

Look out for authentic Greek filo pastry for these tarts. If you can, buy it in a 275g packet, which is the perfect amount for the recipe.

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Pineapple Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A real family favourite on our lunch menu, I make this every Christmas for the family and my brother Karlous has been known to eat two or three of them. If you would prefer to cook these in the oven, simply preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush the tops and sides of spring rolls with egg wash and simply arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.

For that extra bit of wow.

Apple and Almond Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The best way to arrange the apples in the tin is to start at the perimeter, in a pinwheel fashion, filling the middle after a full circle of slices is in place.
