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.

The Best Ever Irish Coffee

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I’ve perfected this recipe over time and believe it really is the best ever Irish coffee.

Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Mediterranean Couscous

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A version of this dish often makes an appearance on our Sunday lunch menu or I have it as an element on the tasting plate of Irish lamb. I just love to showcase the versatility of lamb. Make sure you ask your loval butcher to trim, bone and roll the shoulder for you so that you end up with a nice shape for presentation.

Baked ham and leeks au gratin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course you could use a cured Parma-type ham in this recipe or replace the Cheddar with Gruyere which also has excellent melting properties.

Loin of Lamb in Crisp Potato Crust

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Served with Tarragon Jus with Pea and Mint Puree. This dish can be prepared well in advance as, once wrapped in the potato crust, the lamb will sit happily for an hour or two before roasting.

Warm Pear Cake with Frangipane Butterscotch Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Look out for authentic Greek filo pastry for these tarts. If you can, buy it in a 275g packet, which is the perfect amount for the recipe.

Roast Rib of Beef with Garlic and Thyme Potatoes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A rib of beef is an excellent cut for roasting and perfect when you’ve got to feed a crowd. Always allow a joint to come back up to temperature before roasting to achieve the best flavour.

Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Rosemary and Garlic

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This butterflied leg of lamb is the perfect choice for the barbecue but also works wonderfully in the oven. It would also be nice served with a pile of warmed pitta breads or flour tortillas and a mixed salad in the centre of the table so everyone can help themselves.

Chocolate Brownie with Fudge Sauce and Caramelised Pecans

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These are intensely chocolatey brownies that get smothered in a rich fudge sauce that is flavoured with - you've guessed it - more chocolate!

Coconut Crème Brûlée with Spun Sugar with Poached Rhubarb

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I use a blowtorch to melt and glaze the brûlée sugar topping until it caramelises, but blowtorches are not for the faint-hearted!
