MacNean Mint Chocolate Truffles

These truffles make wonderful gifts for friends (if you can bear to give them away!).

Celeriac and Baby Carrot Risotto with Sherry Vinegar Caramel and Crispy Potato Rosti

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Risotto is always a popular dish in the restaurant and we usually have a verison on the menu. The sherry vinegar caramel works well with the vegetables and crispy potato rosti. It’s a combination I first tried on a trip to Rome with my chefs. They save up all the tips and use them to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Custard Tart

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

If making these tarts when asparagus is not in season, use leeks or sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped fresh tarragon into the cases for a better flavour.

Pan Boxty Pizza

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Of course these boxty farls can be served with a variety of toppings, try splitting and spreading with a little butter, then top with black pudding and a scattering of your favourite blue cheese, then add a of onion marmalade to serve. Alternatively try smoked smoked salmon, rocket and a horseradish dressing or flash crispy bacon, cubes of Cheddar and finely chopped scallions under the grill until bubbling.

Pizza bread

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Children and adults love this pizza bread that we serve in the restaurant. It’s also great for a barbecue and is just that little bit different. Feel free to vary the toppings depending on what you fancy

Inverted Blue Cheeseburger

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A really good beef burger has to be made from really good quality minced beef. If you can, ask your butcher to mince some rib-eye and make sure that it has at least 20% fat content as this will in effect make the burgers self-basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. This is served with Roasted Tomatoes and Red Onion Salad

Tart Tatin

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

This is a very impressive dessert to get done in such a short time, but it's definitely achievable by using the ready-to-roll puff pastry. Look for the all-butter version, which more supermarkets are now stocking.

Beef Stroganoff with Fluffy Rice and Dill Pickle Shavings

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

Traditionally this was served with buttered noodles, not unlike tagliatelle, but it is so much nicer with fluffy rice. The soured cream is not strictly necessary, and regular cream will work just as well.

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Pineapple Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A real family favourite on our lunch menu, I make this every Christmas for the family and my brother Karlous has been known to eat two or three of them. If you would prefer to cook these in the oven, simply preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush the tops and sides of spring rolls with egg wash and simply arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.
