Braised Beef Cheek with Roasted Garlic Mash

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ask your local butcher for beef cheeks as you will not find them in the supermarkets. They really are the most tender meat you’ll ever have tasted!

Blueberry and Cream Cheese Citrus Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These tarts can be eaten warm or cold and of course you could use any soft fruit that is in season, or a good store-cupboard standby would be a drained can of apricot slices in natural juice.

Brandy Snaps with Chilli and Passion Fruit Cream

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a simple, light dessert that my mother always had on our dessert trolley in the restaurant. This is my twist on her recipe. The passion fruit makes them very refreshing and the little chilli kick is a nice afternote. Once the batter is made, they take very little time to prepare.

Lamb Rogan Josh

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Ring of Kerry Lamb is a very new brand, started in 2009 by 35 sheep farmers in Kerry who realised that drastic action had to be taken to avoid the disappearance of the hill farming and shepherding traditions, and to remain in business. They now produce lamb 12 months of the year to meet the year-round demand for 'spring' lamb. Neven meets one of the farmers on his farm near Killarney.

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.

Griddled Lamb Chops with Courgettes and Lemon
