MacNean Wheaten Bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Everyone claims to have a great family recipe for wheaten bread. I've experimented with a lot of recipes over the years and this is deinitely the best I've tasted to date. It has a lovely sweet flavour but is still very much a savoury bread

Scrambled Eggs with Burren Smoked Salmon

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

There is nothing nicer than the combination of flavours of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. We are lucky in Ireland to have such great smoked salmon. My favourite at the moment is from the Burren Smokehouse, as I find it very consistent in flavour. They also offer a great mail order service.

Pan Boxty Pizza

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course these boxty farls can be served with a variety of toppings, try splitting and spreading with a little butter, then top with black pudding and a scattering of your favourite blue cheese, then add a of onion marmalade to serve. Alternatively try smoked smoked salmon, rocket and a horseradish dressing or flash crispy bacon, cubes of Cheddar and finely chopped scallions under the grill until bubbling.

The peeling is worth it!

Crispy Duck Mango Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

It's great that there is now authentic Chinese aromatic duck readily available in all major supermarkets. It makes this salad quick and easy to make, and the duck can be cooked a couple of hours ahead of time so that all you have to do is toss all of the ingredients together just before you are ready to serve.

Beef Wellington

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a wonderful, classic dish that no one ever seems to tire of and keeps the cost of fillet steak to a minimum. It can be made up to 12 hours in advance and kept covered in the fridge until needed. Just remember to give it a little longer in the oven if you are using it straight from the fridge.

French Apple Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The best way to arrange the apples in the tin is to start at the perimeter, in a pinwheel fashion, filling the middle after a full circle of slices is in place.

Trio of Chocolate (Warm Fondant and Opera Cake)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

One of our signature dishes – this has all the elements of chocolate. It’s on the Prestige Menu in the Restaurant. Stephen, my head pastry chef, takes great pride in his chocolate work and this dessert really showcases it.

Baked Eggs

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Experiment with other flavour additions – a little chopped cooked ham or Parma ham, diced cooked mushrooms, a few herbs or some sliced artichoke heart can all go into the base before you crack in the egg. For a really extravagant addition, add a drop or two of white truffle oil over the cream.
