Neven Maguire follows his recent culinary TV journey around Italy with another selection of Christmas recipes that viewers have come to expect and rely on, in his two new Christmas programmes.

This is Neven’s fifth year presenting Christmas programmes and the hugely popular chef is including goose in this year’s menu.

“I’ve always wanted to include goose in my Christmas programmes because it’s a traditional bird that I hope becomes as popular again as it once was”, he says.
“ It has a rich, dark meat and if you’ve never tasted it before, you should definitely try it. But of course, I’m doing a turkey recipe as well. It’s an Asian inspired satay which offers you a different way to cook turkey, an ingredient which I think we should use throughout the year, and not just at Christmas”.

Programme one Tuesday December 5th
In Neven’s first Christmas Menu he prepares Crispy Goat’s Cheese and a delicious Lobster Bisque.
Roast Goose, Turkey Satay and Vera’s Sherry Trifle are also included in this programme.
And Neven makes Oat Biscuits, Fig and Cranberry Chutney, and Candied Walnuts to finish.

Programme two Thursday December 7th
In his second Christmas Menu Neven makes delicious Sausage Rolls as well as Sliced Lamb with Blue Cheese and Plums on Toast for starters.
He also cooks Rib of Beef and Barley Risotto with Ham.
Spiced Cranberry Florentines, mini Custard and Apple Puff Pastry Tarts, and a selection of Cocktails complete Neven’s Christmas Menu.

Neven’s Christmas Menu is produced and directed by David Hare and sponsored by Bord Bia.
