A lovely, rustic and Irish after-meal accompaniment

Smoked Belly of Pork with Creamed White Beans and Date Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We get this smoked pork belly from our excellent local craft butcher, Kevin McGovern, based in Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. It’s coal smoked and has a very similar taste to kassler, the German dish, which is traditionally served with sauerkraut. Use any leftover trimmings for pasta Carbonara. The braising juice can be used for a celeriac soup or can be frozen.

Hake with Cassoulet of Beans and Chorizo

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Hake has a lovely soft texture and slight sweetness when it's very fresh. It's highly regarded by chefs, as it offers great value for money. Ask your fishmonger for the hake fillets from the centre cut so that they are nice and chunky. The combination of the chorizo and beans gives this dish a real Spanish flavour.

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Custard Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If making these tarts when asparagus is not in season, use leeks or sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped fresh tarragon into the cases for a better flavour.

Gratin of Hake, Prawns and Basil on a Bed of Spinach

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

In Neven Maguire's dish the flavour contrasts beautifully with the fish.

Oatmeal Cookies

These nutritious flapjacks keep very well in a tin. Children love their crunchy texture and they make an ideal addition to any lunchbox.

Assiette of Rare-Breed Pork (Caramelised Belly, Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Fillet and Pork and Leek Sausage)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

We always use rare breed saddleback pork, which really has the most wonderful flavour. There are lots of craft butchers now making their own sausages.
