Sweet taste of summer as Neven Maguire launches dessert range for Avonmore
Ireland’s number one TV celebrity chef, Neven Maguire, has launched a range of four traditional Summer Desserts with a modern twist in association with Avonmore Fresh Dessert Cream for its recipe website www.cookwithavonmore.ie
. The desserts feature traditional favourites including Eton Mess; Summer Brownie Swirl; Raspberry and Cream Short-Bread and Almond, Raspberry & White Chocolate Tart.
The new recipe range coincides with the results of an online nationwide poll carried out by Avonmore, in 2013, which revealed that Pavlova is the preferred dessert in Ireland. It included a base of 1,000 people who were asked to choose from a list of classic desserts such as Apple Pie, Cheesecake, Chocolate cake and Pavlova. Pavola came out as the leading choice in several counties including Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Wexford. Kerry’s favourite dessert is Apple Tart. Kilkenny favours Eton Mess. People in Galway opted for Strawberries & Cream. Sticky Toffee Pudding is the favourite in Clare while those living in Offaly declared Apple & Rhubarb Crumble to be their favourite. Other favourites throughout Ireland included Cheesecake; Tiramasiu; Profiteroles; Apple Tart; Brownies; Crème Brulee and old fashioned trifle.
Speaking at the launch of the Neven Maguire Avonmore Dessert Cream recipe range, Neven said “I have travelled all over the world and when I come home I am always reminded that our dairy produce beats, hands down, any other country in the world. We are so lucky because Irish fresh cream is the best in the world and the taste is unique. I have used Avonmore’s Fresh Dessert Cream, a new addition to the Avonmore cream range, because it is extra thick, slightly sweetened, and is ready to pour over your favourite dessert.”
Filming on the 6th series of Neven’s Home Chef Series for RTE 1 begins in October 2014 and it is currently being broadcast in the United States on the PBS Channel, which is to run for three years. In September 2014 Neven will bring out his 11th cookbook entitled “Nation’s Favourite Food – Fast”.
Neven’s recipes along with a wide range of other desserts can be seen on Avonmore’s recipe website www.cookwithavonmore.ie
