Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb...

Rhubarb is still in season, but make sure you look for deep, rosy leaves when buying. Easy to prepare, rhubarb is extremely versatile, not only in crumbles and trifles but also ice cream and even as a confit to serve with roast duck.

Perfect pizza

Whatever the weather, pizza fits the bill. Incredibly versatile you can even divide the toppings for a meat eater on one side and a veggie on the other, as well as add an extra chilli kick if necessary.

Some of the recipes in our collection are made with shop-bought pizza bases, but if you are feeling a little Italian, try making your own dough and top with bright, colourful fresh ingredients.

Waitrose-asparagus-recipe Asparagus

UK-grown asparagus should be sprouting up in the shops and peeping out of your vegetable bed at the moment. Although Delia's favourite ways to eat asparagus are hot with foaming, melted butter or hollandaise sauce poured over, as well as warm or cold with vinaigrette, we do have some other recipes if you have a glut and need to use up your asparagus crop.

Probably one of the most popular cuisines we make in our own homes is Italian food, from a simple weekday pasta and sauce for the family to weekend entertaining.

Delia’s Italian recipes will help you find something to fit the bill from starters and main courses to desserts. One particular recipe that consistently gets top marks from our members is Chicken Cacciatora, made with red, ripe full-flavoured tomatoes, and if you think Zabaglione is too much of a faff to make, think again. With Delia's secret ingredient you can whip it up in no time.

Spring lamb

lamb230square-28505 In season this month, a leg of lamb is one of the commonest, most popular cuts for roasting. It will serve a large family and is excellent for simple roasting at a high temperature. When you cook meat on the bone, the bone inside provides an excellent conductor of heat - this means that the meat will be cooked more evenly with less loss of juices.
