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.

Butternut Squash and Pasta Bake

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

The roasted butternut squash adds a wonderful zap to this pasta gratin, while the mascarpone cheese helps to keep everything really moist. There’s this on going debate about which pasta is better – fresh or dried, and I can honestly say that I think dried is best in most recipes. It uses hard durum wheat, which when cooked gives that lovely ‘bite’ that we talk about when cooking pasta.

Monkfish with Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Sundried Tomato and Saffron Velouté

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Monkfish is a firm-textured fish and is very popular with our customers. The velouté goes well with any fish, as its flavour isn't too overpowering. The gnocchi also works well on its own with a Parmesan foam as a starter or light supper.

The Ultimate Beef Burger with Crispy Potato Wedges

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good burger has to be made from really good beef. If you can, ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you, but make sure it has 20 per cent fat content, as in effect this will make them self-basting and will prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise, buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don't buy extra-lean mince or the burgers will become tough during cooking.

A delicious glaze recipe

The Best Ever Irish Coffee

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

I’ve perfected this recipe over time and believe it really is the best ever Irish coffee.

Basque Hake with Sizzling Chorizo and Clams

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Packed full of Spanish flavours, I just love this Basque inspired hake dish with a green salad and a nice bottle of crisp dry white wine. Hake is the most popular fish in Spain, but of course you could substitute with cod or haddock with excellent results.

Cointreau Infused Strawberry Meringues

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

These meringues have a crisp exterior and delicious, marshmallow-like centres. They will keep for at least one week in an airtight container, just add the strawberry topping just before serving or the meringues will go soft.

Rib-eye Steak with Chimichurri

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Chimichurri is a green sauce that is traditionally served with barbecued or grilled meat in Argentina. Rib-eye is my favourite cut of beef for a steak, as it has the perfect balance between flavour and value for money.
