summer collection stretched Delia's Summer Collection

Can you believe it is over 20 years since this book was published? It's iconic sunflower cover epitomised the summer of 1993, and heralded new ingredients and recipes to our kitchens that we now take for granted. We have been amazed at the response on our forum thread and can see that recipes from the Summer Collection are still being made all over the world.

See which recipes are coming out on top and tell us which recipes you are still making in 2015.  You can also have a look at all the recipes we have from the book on Delia Online.

Delia's Summer Collection

In season...     

elderflowers peaches courgettes Look out for lovely, ripe peaches for Delia's Fresh Peaches baked in Marsala with Mascarpone Cream a great dessert that can be made well in advance or Peach and Almond Pudding which tastes delicious served hot or cold.

To use up a glut of courgettes try Courgette Soup with Watercress and Pecorino Pesto or for an impressive lunch try Courgette Soufflé.

With elderflower cordial now being widely available you can match it up with fresh gooseberries for Delia's Fresh Gooseberry and Elderflower Muffins one of the recipes in our Online Cookery School.

Ice cream

su168-strawberry-cheesecake-18980 Keep things cool with ice cream using soft fruits such as blackcurrants, gooseberries and strawberries all in season at the moment. Coconut with a zingy lime syrup looks impressive served in pretty long-stemmed glasses and for a truly refreshing ice cream lemon meringue combines the sharp flavour of lemons with the crunch of meringue.
