Oven-baked Chicken in Maple Barbecue SauceServes 4

Oven-baked Chicken in Maple Barbecue Sauce

The sticky-sweet maple syrup marinade will guarantee that this quick and easy recipe is a huge hit with all the family!

 
 
Four Star SlawServes 10

Four Star Slaw

The four 'stars' in this case are celeriac, carrot, cabbage and spring onion. The result is a very crunchy fresh-tasting coleslaw that can be made the day before, if you cover it with clingfilm and keep it in the refrigerator until needed.

 
 
Foil-baked Salmon Served with English Parsley SauceServes 4

Foil-baked Salmon Served with English Parsley Sauce

An English parsley sauce has, in many ways, become a forgotten delicacy. It's excellent served with boiled gammon or any baked fish or, as shown here, it's supremely good served as a partner to fresh salmon.

 
 
Walnut ShortbreadsMakes approximately 20

Walnut Shortbreads

These light, crumbly little biscuits are just the thing to serve with home-made ice creams. They could also be packed into boxes or jars for a home-made Christmas gift. Walnut Shortbread can also be made in advance and then frozen.

 
 
Stuffed Yellow Peppers with Pilau Rice, Currants and Toasted Pine NutsServes 12

Stuffed Yellow Peppers with Pilau Rice, Currants and Toasted Pine Nuts

Make the peppers ahead for an easy dish when entertaining. Stuffing vegetables with a mixture of rice, nuts and dried fruit adds plenty of flavour and a very Mediterranean element.

 
 
Coffee and Hazelnut MacaroonsMakes approximately 30

Coffee and Hazelnut Macaroons

These crunchy little hazelnut biscuits go very well with Irish Coffee Cappuccino Creams with Cream and Sweet Coffee Sauce. Alternatively, if you leave out the coffee, they're excellent for serving with ice creams or jellies.

 
 
Open-faced Egg, Anchovy and Shallot SandwichesServes 2

Open-faced Egg, Anchovy and Shallot Sandwiches

Sandwiches are the ultimate quick snack but all too often can be a bit boring. Not so with this recipe, which combines creamy eggs, salty anchovies and the crunch of shallots, garnished with an olive!

 
 
Terrine with Three CheesesServes 8 as a first course

Terrine with Three Cheeses

A lovely light terrine that's just perfect with a crisp salad and good bread. What's more, you can easily increase the quantities and make this for a buffet or party.

 
 
Rillettes of Duck with Confit of CranberriesServes 6 as a starter

Rillettes of Duck with Confit of Cranberries

This is one of my favourite starters: a terrine of tiny shreds of tender, succulent duck melded together like a pâté, then served with the dazzling depth of colour and sharpness of a confit of cranberries to counteract the richness.

 
 
Cold Pressed Ox TongueServes 10-12

Cold Pressed Ox Tongue

Although you can order a pressed tongue from the butcher at Christmas it is usually much nicer home-made – and it's not really much trouble.
