Assiette of Rare-Breed Pork (Caramelised Belly, Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Fillet and Pork and Leek Sausage)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We always use rare breed saddleback pork, which really has the most wonderful flavour. There are lots of craft butchers now making their own sausages.

A great accompaniment.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Roast Whole Chicken with Sherry, Honey and Dried Fruit Couscous

From: Today

This whole chicken recipe has Moroccan origins. It is a great way of keeping the chicken moist throughout the cooking. You can omit the couscous if you like and start from paragraph 5 in the method. Stuff the chicken with a lemon, a head of garlic, and some rosemary. If you want to use olive oil instead of butter, you can! Furthermore, white wine or cider will also do the job. The best way to cook a whole chicken is to cook it slowly at low temperature for longer and then turn up the oven at the end to achieve the Maillard reaction. You can brine you chicken (8% brine solution) overnight for a more complex flavour, as the brine will help keep the chicken juicy and moist. Brine breaks down the protein and makes for softer meat.
