We hope you were able to tune in for my Christmas special. And I hope that you might give a few of the dishes a try this year. So, here are all the recipes from the show. Enjoy your festive cooking everyone. And we haven’t forgotten the recipes from last week’s Christmas Facebook Live – we will have them up very soon!
I love Christmas. It is a brilliant time of the year for families and friends and good will. And of course good food too.
My Auntie Maureen is a retired home economics teacher and I think all of her students must be spreading the word about her fabulous Christmas baking. We have been using her recipes for years in the restaurant. They are tried, tested and most importantly loved and we will be sharing her Frangipane Mince Pie and Christmas Pudding Recipe in this blog.
I love Christmas. Good will, good food and good times.
Between dressing up for halloween parties, cookery demos and roast chicken with Marian Finucane we had a busy weekend (recipe below!!). Let’s start with the demos. I was at the 50th anniversary of Cornelscourt Dunnes Stores. I am their brand ambassador for the Simply Better range for Dunnes Stores and very proud to be too.
GREAT DAY… We had a fantastic day at Cornelscourt to celebrate their 50th Anniversary.
It’s Halloween and time for fancy dress parties, and trick or treating and of course scary looking pumpkins. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share this recipe for Penne with Pumpkin, Crispy Pancetta, Sage and Parmesan. Look for small organic pumpkins called Jack O Lantern, now grown all over Ireland. They are a vibrant orange and they are the ideal size for this recipe. Hope you enjoy.
PUMPKIN PERFECTON… Just a gorgeous way to use your pumpkin at halloween
I REALLY HOPE everyone is enjoying my latest show, ‘Neven’s Food Trails’ which goes out at 7:00pm on RTE every Thursday. On the show this week I got to sample some glorious local fish that is available in the Basque region while I also got to cook two of my favourite fish recipes, tuna and hummus bruschetta with spinach salad and capers and grilled black sole on the bone with lime and caper butter. Here they are and I just know that you love them as much as I do.
TERRIFIC TUNA… I love this healthy tuna recipe
I hope you were able to join me at my Facebook Live the other evening and we will be doing lots more in the coming weeks and months. We cooked three recipes and I promised you I would share them on the blog. First up is a delicious Chicken Korma that comes from my new book, Neven Maguire’s Complete Family Cookbook then we have a firm favourite in the shape of Gratin of Hake with Prawns and lastly we have another recipe from my new book, a gorgeous Caramel sauce.
CHICKEN KORMA… I promise you will love my version of this Chicken Korma
It was great to watch the first episode of my new show at home with the family. The twins, Connor and Lucia got a shock when they saw daddy on the TV!! That was a special moment and it was fantastic to see how RTE put the whole show together.
FINGER LICKIN… I just love these Buffalo Chicken Wings. Perfect for so many occasions.
