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.

Christmas Feast: Black Forest Brownie Trifle

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This recipe might look a little complicated but in fact it's incredibly easy. If you're very short of time use shop-bought brownies, a carton of readymade custard that you stir the melted chocolate into and a couple of posh jars of cherries in kirsch. Whatever way you decide to do it always use the best quality dark chocolate you can afford. It's best to leave the final part of the assembly to the last minute for the most spectacular impact.

Beer Batter Fish Tacos with Cherry Tomato Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is a great recipe of tortillas filled with shallow fried fish goujons, tomato salsa, a little soured cream and some salad. Perfect served with ice cold beer for the grown ups…

Jerk Chicken with Mango Salsa

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

If you've never had Jerk chicken before and were wondering what all the fuss was about, well, you are in for a treat. The spicy and earthy marinade produces the most delicious tender chicken you will ever have. Served with a cooling and sweet mango salsa, this is one of my ultimate summer dishes.

Christmas Feast: Goose Fat Roast Potatoes with Garlic & Rosemary

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

For really crunchy roast potatoes with fluffy middles choose a floury variety of potato, such as Irish Roosters and try to make sure that they are all similar in size. To ensure really crispy roast potatoes drain off any excess fat about 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time. This will help them to go really crispy and golden brown around the edges.

The meat mix is full of really light and aromatic flavours and is served in little baby gem lettuce leaves, making the lettuce cups perfect finger food!

Glazed Spiced Venison with Forest Mushrooms and Sweet Potato Mash

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

The delicate flavour of the venison is complemented by the gutsy sweet potato mash and sauté of wild mushrooms. Most supermarkets now stock a decent range including chanterelle, oyster, chestnut and if you’re very lucky ceps (porcini) if they’re in season.

Kedgeree

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This wonderful spiced rice and egg dish from colonial India makes for a rather different breakfast. Keep an eye out for undyed smoked haddock - many fishmongers and supermarkets now stock it and the flavour is far superior.

Surf & Turf Salad

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Chimichurri is a tangy and fresh Argentinian sauce. It can be made very easily and is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meat and seafood. This is a mighty feast, which is also quite healthy.

Howth Head Seafood Chowder

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

My home town of Howth is famous throughout Ireland for its fish. Along the west pier there are plenty of fishmongers to choose some of the freshest fish for supper. This wonderfully creamy seafood chowder always reminds me of home and with a few slices of brown bread with Irish salted butter, I'm there in an instant.
