Coeliac Friendly Chocolate Brownie

“If you are a chocolate lover like me, our homemade chocolate brownie will be guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is by far our most popular Dessert here in Café 31 and has been modified to suit coeliacs who are often limited when it comes to the choices available for their final course. It’s rich, chocolaty and the coconut ice cream acts as a delicious contrast to the bitter Valhrona Chocolate we use. It will also hold well after freezing if you have leftovers, but from our experience, you won’t!”

Prawns Funghi

“I really love this prawn dish as its creamy, rich and packed with flavour. Our guests often mention they have trouble perfecting their pasta sauces but this one is so easy to make and also works well when accompanied with chicken for example.”

Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Chocolate Panettone

From: Today

Catherine says: "Living in Ireland, I used to think of panettone as a very dry Italian Christmas cake until I tasted one that had been freshly made in Sicily. I was totally converted – I could easily devour half of one in a single sitting! I bake these as individual little panettone cakes for friends. They are so good served with a glass of dessert wine or even Marsala.

Focaccia with Red Wine and Grapes

From: Today

If ever there was a 'wow' bread, then in my humble opinion, this is it! This Tuscan bread celebrates the wine grape harvest. As you can imagine, it's stunning with cheese. The grapes begin to caramelise when baked and form a delicious, slightly crispy topping.

Ravioli of Swiss Chard and Ricotta with Smoked Garlic Foam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This dish is a clever way of looking like you have gone to the trouble of making your own pasta. Instead, the secret is to use wonton wrappers, which can be found in Asian supermarkets or on the internet. We have started to grow our own chard for the restaurant. You can also use golden or ruby chard or even baby spinach works very well.

Baked Macaroni Cheese

From: Today

This pasta dish is a family favourite, add any leftover ham to the dish if desired. Sometimes I add some chopped bacon to the pan with the onion for some extra flavour.
