From a very young age, one of Neven Maguire’s favourite pastimes was to shadow his mother in the kitchen, watching her cook. He began experimenting with ingredients at home from the tender age of ten and his pastime soon became his passion. Neven went on to train in some of the highest-profile restaurants in the world and in 2001, Neven took over MacNean Restaurant, turning a local establishment into a national phenomenon. His highly popular Nation’s Favourite Food Fast! won an Irish Book Award and his highly-acclaimed MacNean Restaurant Cookbook, Nation’s Favourite Food and Nation’s Favourite Healthy Food were all nominated for an Irish Book Award. His first book for babies and toddlers Neven Maguire’s Baby and Toddler Cookbook won the Maternity and Infant Best Family Cookbook award, which was voted, tested and approved by parents. He lives in Blacklion, Co Cavan with his wife Amelda, and young twins Connor and Lucia.
