Mushroom Purée

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Goes with so many great dishes.

Wild Boar Sausage Cassoulet

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A simpler version of an authentic cassoulet from Neven Maguire.

Singapore Noodles

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of those dishes that is worth taking a trip to the Asian supermarket for, where you'll find Chinese dried mushrooms and shrimps, not to mention a fantastic range of rice noodles to choose from. The finished result will taste better than any Chinese takeaway. If you can't get them, use fresh shiitake mushrooms instead of dried ones and add in a few more fresh prawns.

Prawn Cocktail

From: Today

Although prawn cocktail might seem a bit dated, it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Made properly with fresh ingredients, it can make an elegant yet simple starter that no one will forget in a hurry.

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.

MacNean Chocolate & Coole Swan Truffles

From: Today

These truffles will keep well in the fridge for up to one week in an airtight container.

Pork and Wild Mushroom Wontons with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is one of the most popular starters in the restaurant, where I sometimes use a chicken mousse with crab as an alternative filling. Packets of wonton wrappers can be found in specialist Asian stores or on the internet. They normally come in packets of about 40, so you can freeze the remainder.

Courgette rosti

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A delicious way of cooking courgettes.

Sticky Bacon Chops

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Have you ever seen bacon chops in the supermarket and wondered what to do with them? Well here is a recipe that all the family will enjoy. I'm serving them with crispy rösti, which cleverly disguises lots of nutritious root vegetables.

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.
