Summer Collection

well, mine really has to be

Delias Homemade Lemonade.

I make this all the time in the summer - especially after remembering the first time, it was when we first moved into our first home that had a garden - and we had a family BBQ, I actually made 2 jugs worth, my husband thought i was barmy saying no one drinks flat lemonade anymore, its not all famous 5 etc etc etc.

well the day of the barbecure happened to coincide with the total eclispe, that was first seen in UK for about a gazillion years.... It was around lunch time when all of a sudden the chirrping and tweeting of the birds was silenced and it despite the fact it was a glorious day it went very chilly...and then it went quite dull and gloomy, not dark as deepest night, but as if a storm was looming.... which was when the BBQ got fired up - the silence was deafening.......

and then we all looked up and saw the eclipse (courtesy of sun visor thingy's from the sun newspaper ofer) and it was amazing - made more amazing by the fact that despite it being during a working day - we had for the first time both families united in our back garden, enjoying a BBQ and 2 jugs of delias lemonade.

I since found out it goes beautifully with vodka - and apparently gin, bleurghhhhh!!!!!

and everytime family/friends are due over to ours, I knock up a jig or 2 of the lemonade.

proper summer to us, in a glass.

Well I would love to try the chicken basque recipe from the book and at the moment my favourite recipe is Delia's strawberry pavlova!

Basque Chicken

This recipe has seen me through dozens of gatherings at home and on holiday, everyone loves it, it looks after itself and leaves hardly any washing up and I never get tired of it. And if the summer is like this one it has that hearty comfort food effect that we need then we come in soaked.

My favourite Delia recipe of all time (not in the summer collection as I don't have that book) is the key lime pie. This pie tastes just as good as the key lime pie i had whilst in Florida on holiday a few years ago. A memerable holiday and a lovely way to remember the sunny climes.

Lemon Curd

I love to make my own lemon curd - it is so versatile: add it to buttercream and cake mix to make delicious lemon cupcakes, to fromage frais as a simple dessert, to cheesecake mix or simply spread on bread = unbeatable

My favourite is the Califorian grilled fish, quick, tasty. Great for a mid week meal or to serve when you have guests !

Delia's summer collection

My favourite Summer Collection recipe is Piedmont Peppers. And I don't make them exclusively in the summer - it's an all round dish in our household!

Delia's Summer Collection

the first time I cooked for my husband I made Delia's crab rosti fishcakes, followed by chicken with tarragon and sherry vinegar with the rosemary roast potatoes - all from DSC. It all worked like clockwork, he was mightily impressed and we celebrate our 10th anniversary in July.


Aside from that happy memory, I make those potatoes almost weekly, and the chicken, Basque Chicken and Piedmontese Peppers pretty frequently - and pasta puttanesca, which is probably my favourite pasta sauce of all time

Summer Collection

My favourite is the fried halloumi with lime and caper vinaigrette because it's loved by my all my friends especially the vegetarians. The dressing is really special but simple to make and is also great with salads and fish dishes.

The Basque Chicken recipe is my favourite because it's the only chicken dish ny children will eat so it's essential for harmonius family meals!

My favourite Delia recipe is one that I found online. I had been looking for ages for a rice pudding recipe and Delia's traditional recipe is amazing.
