I love venison and think it’s vastly underrated.

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!

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.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage and Red Onion Sauté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Confit is a traditional French way of cooking duck. The method is centuries-old - first the meat is cured in salt, then poached in its own fat. Be prepared that this special recipe does take a while, but it's definitely worth it. You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat, available from your butcher or larger supermarkets. If you don't have enough, combine with peanut oil or chicken fat, or just use either of those instead.
