Cointreau Infused Strawberry Meringues

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These meringues have a crisp exterior and delicious, marshmallow-like centres. They will keep for at least one week in an airtight container, just add the strawberry topping just before serving or the meringues will go soft.

Ham, Irish cheese and pickled shallots

A lovely, rustic and Irish after-meal accompaniment

Amaretti Grilled Peaches

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Italian Amaretti biscuits are delicious crumbled onto soft fruit. Of course, you can use nectarines for this recipe or even drained canned peaches if there are none in season. Buy the ones in natural fruit juice as they aren't too sweet.

Mushroom Purée

Goes with so many great dishes.

French Apple 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.

Roast Leg of Spring Lamb with Boulangère Potatoes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dish is hassle-free - perfect for a dinner party or Sunday lunch.

Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

Mulled Fruit Trifle

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My Mum always made this trifle for special occasions when I was growing up. I just loved helping - especially with the cleaning of the bowls - and it definitely inspired me to be a chef. At Christmas I like to decorate the top with pomegranate seeds to make it sparkle like jewels!

White and Sweet Potato Gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a variation on my favourite accompaniment. It is great for Christmas Day as it can be made in advance and reheated in individual potions on a baking sheet. It also keeps well in a cool oven.

Beetroot Borscht with Soured Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Borscht is a classic soup in most parts of Eastern Europe and it was Piotr and Pawel, twin Polish chefs, who first introduced it to my kitchen.
