From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Depending on the time of year, you can vary the fruit, or try using a bag of mixed frozen summer berries. We occasionally make this in the restaurant for the kitchen staff for a special treat or in individual portions as part of a more complicated dessert plate.

The Ultimate Cheeseboard with Onion and Fig Jam

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef - Christmas Special

For any cheese lover, the idea of being able to work your way around a selection of contrasting cheeses is one of the best ways of indulging your passion. When putting together a cheeseboard the aim is for a contrast of textures, tastes and shapes. Mild to strong, rounds and wedges, light against dark, soft and hard – it's about making an aesthetic impact as much as a gastrominoc one. The chutney will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Crispy Goat’s Cheese with Beetroot Panna Cotta

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If you prefer to bake the goat’s cheese, simply cook it a pre-heated oven (180°C/Gas 4) for another 5-10 minutes – until warmed through and soft. We use a rectangular silicone mould to make the panna cotta in, which are available from both catering shops and online.
