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.

Salmon and Asparagus Wraps with Rocket Pesto

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Farmed salmon has become much better quality over the years, and in my opinion some of the best available comes from Ireland, where the sea is always freezing cold and for the most part is unpolluted, with strong tidal flows. Make sure your salmon fillets are all even-sized and about 2.5cm (1in) thick to ensure even cooking. They also work well on the barbecue and can be made up to 12 hours in advance, covered with clingfilm and chilled until needed - just don't add the squeeze of lemon juice until you're ready to cook them.

Crispy Goat's Cheese with Apple and Hazelnut Salad

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat's cheese, simply cook it in an oven preheated to 180°C (350°F/gas mark 4) for another 5-10 minutes, until warmed through and soft. Look for Irish apples in the supermarket, particularly when they are in season, and if they're not there, ask the manager why! Apples are one of our few indigenous fruits and there is no excuse for the shops not supporting Irish farmers.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steak with Sauce Diane

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I always bring steaks to room temperature by removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before I want to cook them. This recipe uses my favourite cut, the rib-eye, which is still nice and tender but with enough fat and textures to make for an exciting chew.

Potato and Herb Pancakes

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

My grandmother, Susan Maguire, always made boxty for my family every Halloween and Easter. I look forward to those meals as much as Christmas dinner. This is a modern version of boxty.
