Pizza Tart with Irish Brie

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A versatile tart with all of the familiar pizza flavours but on a crisp puff pastry base. Try to use the all butter puff pastry, which is now widely available, as the flavour is so much better. If you don’t fancy using Brie try slices of mozzarella or goat’s cheese.

Duck Confit with Savoy Cabbage and Red Onion Sauté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Confit is a traditional French way of cooking duck. The method is centuries-old - first the meat is cured in salt, then poached in its own fat. Be prepared that this special recipe does take a while, but it's definitely worth it. You'll need about 1 litre (1¾ pints) of duck fat, available from your butcher or larger supermarkets. If you don't have enough, combine with peanut oil or chicken fat, or just use either of those instead.

The meringues are prepared from whipped egg whites, sugar and vanilla extract, then quickly poached. Neven serves it with a sugar spun basket and raspberries.
