Ham, Irish cheese and pickled shallots

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A lovely, rustic and Irish after-meal accompaniment

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Mango Chutney

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These can be assembled and cooked 2–3 hours before needed, but no earlier or the wrappers will go soggy.

Wild Boar Sausage Cassoulet

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A simpler version of an authentic cassoulet from Neven Maguire.

Trio of Chocolate (Delice)

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This chocolate delice consists of a layer of chocolate sponge, soaked with coffee syrup and chocolate filling. It’s completely delicious served on its own or as part of the trio of chocolate dessert.

Chicken Tikka Masala

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This has to be the most popular curry in the world! There is always a debate about the exact origins of the recipe, but it's certainly not an authentic Indian curry and is most likely a result of the curry devised for Western palates in the first Indian restaurants in Britain and Ireland.

Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Soup with Smoked Duck

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Stock up on cans of vacuum-packed chestnuts, which are normally readily available in good delis, shops and large supermarkets at Christmas time. If you want to keep the soup vegetarian, garnish it with some sautéed mushrooms instead of the smoked duck.

Neven Maguire's The Orchard

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Apple Panna Cotta with Apple Jelly, Glazed Apple Tart, Apple Crumble and Apple Parfait. This is our signature dessert and a great way to present apples when they’re in season. The idea is to take your taste buds on a journey of lots of different textures and flavours. We call it The Orchard after Co. Armagh.

Pineapple Carpaccio with Passion Fruit Syrup

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

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.

Vanilla Crème Brûlée with Poached Irish Apple Compote

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A French classic, and a really creamy and delicious way to end a meal. In the restaurant we like to vary the flavours by using coconut milk, passion fruit or Coole Swan Liqueur. I have my dear friend Léa Linster to thank for this recipe. I normally use a blowtorch, but alternatively place the brulées under a hot grill, watch them like a hawk because they burn very easily. When glazed, they should be a nice mahogany brown colour.

MacNean porridge with Irish Mist and honey

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Porridge is one of our most popular breakfasts in the restaurant, and this recipe goes down a treat. On cold winter mornings, it gets you off to a good start and takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare.
