Baked Indian Spiced Yoghurt Chicken with Cardamom, Coriander and Almond Couscous

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a great way to jazz up a traditional Sunday roast where the chicken is marinated in yoghurt and spices making it meltingly tender. . The flavours here are really fantastic and really penetrate the flesh of the chicken. Try to by a free-range or organic chicken, as the flavour is always so much better.

Goats Cheese, Red Onion and Thyme Quiche

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This quiche uses a soft curd goat’s cheese, which is wonderfully smooth and light with clean lemony flavours with hints of flowers and sweetness that develop when pared with the caramelised red onions.

Cheese & Onion Tart

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This simple but very tasty tart makes an elegant dinner party starter served with some lightly dressed bitter leaf salad. This savoury tart is a wonderful way to celebrate a mature Cheddar cheese and pared with the caramelised onions is a match made in heaven!

Rosemary Rib-Eye Steak with Horseradish Sauce & Fennel Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

These days I hear there is less fillet and striploin being sold and rib-eye has become more popular. It is good value. I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them.

Rib-eye Steak with Chimichurri

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Chimichurri is a green sauce that is traditionally served with barbecued or grilled meat in Argentina. Rib-eye is my favourite cut of beef for a steak, as it has the perfect balance between flavour and value for money.

Ham, Cheese and Egg Crêpes with Griddled Asparagus

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a perfect tea for lots of hungry children, but it would also be a good weekend late breakfast, depending on your mood. It’s the classic way that many crêpe stallholders cook crêpes to order late at night around the major tourist attractions in Paris. They are always very popular, often with long queues, and once you’ve tasted them it’s easy to understand why.

Salmon Fishcakes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Fishcakes are a great, easy way to introduce kids to fish. These are a favourite in our household. Feel free to add vegetables to the fishcakes: peas, carrots or sweetcorn would be good.

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a great winter warmer that you can have on the table in no time at all.

Instant Strawberry Ice Cream Sundae

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Watch children’s faces light up as you make these ice cream sundaes before their very eyes! The ice cream is so much better for them than anything you can buy, contains so little fat and has a really fresh flavour. If there are any adults around, they’ll be guaranteed to enjoy it just as much. Try using raspberries, which work just as well.

Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Peas and Mozzarella

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

If you find the thought of making homemade pasta daunting, gnocchi is a good stepping-stone. You could use store bought gnocchi, though, if you don’t feel up to it. Either way, the combination of golden gnocchi nuggets with creamy mozzarella, sweet garden peas and a drizzling of flavoured butter is a breath of summer air. This makes a superb starter or a light supper.
