Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Smoky Red Pepper Butter

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I hear that less fillet and striploin is being sold these days and rib-eye has become more popular, as it's good value. I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This butter or any of the variations will complement any grilled meat and it looks great. It can be frozen or it keeps happily in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

The trick to roasting vegetables is not to overcrowd the roasting tin - it should be large enough so that the vegetables can be spread out in a thin layer.

The MacNean Celebration Cake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This cake is a very special treat and is great for all manner of occasions. We get so many customers celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in the restaurant. I love the lightness of the chocolate sponge with the slightly salty peanut frosting. Of course, you can use any flavour of chocolate truffles you fancy. I buy crispy feuilletine but you could always use crumbled tuile biscuits, thin wafers, chopped nuts or toasted, flaked almonds instead.

For the very best results, leave the carpaccio at room temperature for a couple of hours before serving to allow the syrup flavours to infuse the pineapple.

Brown Scones

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Brown scones are full of roughage and great for breakfast. And here is a good tip: you can make this mixture, shape the scones and freeze them. You can then cook the scones straight from the freezer to the oven - just give them an extra 5 minutes and make sure the scones are golden brown and well-risen.

Apricot Pudding with Amaretti Custard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This pudding is incredibly easy to make and should take no more than 5 minutes to get into the oven. It's a great store cupboard standby, or you could use fresh ripe apricots that have been skinned if they are in season. Just make sure they are very ripe or they will not cook in the time allowed.
