Brie, Nut and Ginger Wheel

Great for sharing between two for Valentine's Day or as an appetizer or dessert during a dinner party

Beef and Guinness Tagine

Nothing is more Irish than a beef and Guinness casserole, but in the spirit of ish I had to change it up a bit. Guinness is quite bitter, so to balance that I took a cue from Moroccan cuisine and added dried prunes to the recipe. They break down and add to the rich, darkly delicious sauce. Every tagine needs a bit of spice, so I chose the allspice berry for another layer of warm flavour. You can add more root vegetables like parsnips and turnips for extra veggie power.

Dark chocolate raspberry brownies

This recipe makes the most gooey, decadent chocolate brownies imaginable. A word to the lads: if you have annoyed your missus, a tray of these will go a long way to patching things up. With chocolate as the mortar. The frozen raspberries work brilliantly as they stay whole during the baking process, adding bursts of pink tartness in the slab of chocolatey goodness.

Aubergine and Coconut Curry

From: The Afternoon Show

Try this flavoursome and healthy vegetarian curry.

Black Pudding Burgers

This is my favourite burger recipe. Just the smell of them grilling drives my senses wild. The black pudding gives the perfect amount of fat to the burger and fantastic flavour, so there’s no need for extra salt and pepper. There are five optional toppings, which you can serve all at once if you like!

Cardamom Fudge

All the ingredients, including the liquids are measured in grams. So just place a jug or bowl on your measuring scales and measure as normal. You will also need a sugar thermometer to tell when the fudge is ready. These are available online and in most good kitchen departments.

Lentil Salad with Sunblush Tomatoes and Feta

From: Today

This is one of my all time favourite salads. It has a really moreish taste with a lovely texture. This is one of my 'substantial salad' recipes: salads made with resilient ingredients that are filling, transport well and stay fresh. Lentils are economical, highly nutritious and easy to cook. This salad makes a great packed lunch, and will stay fresh in the fridge for three days. Delicious hot or cold, served with grilled fish or on its own.

Wild Garlic Pesto

Stored properly, it may last up to a week.

Pork and Papaya Salad

One for those summer evenings.

Boerewors Kofta and Cherry Tomato Chutney

Coriander is a spice that permeates South African cooking, from our traditional boerewors sausage through to our cured meat speciality, biltong. The seeds have quite a different flavour from the fresh leaves. To get the most flavour, dry fry the whole seeds until you can smell them, then grind them down with a mortar and pestle or in a spice grinder.
