The Best Roast Chicken

lamb230square-28505 The best way to cook spring lamb

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.

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 salads, well dressed

Could there possibly be anything quicker to make for supper than a salad?

Some may turn their nose up thinking a salad wouldn't be enough, so choose one with chicken, beef, crab or tuna for added protein to keep even those with a big appetite satisfied. Salads are also great for using up little odds and ends from the fridge and leftovers, so don't be shy of adding extra to your bowl.

Don't be tempted to buy ready made salad dressings when you can make your own in a jiffy. You may need a little practice, but that's just to get your own perfect balance by adding or reducing mustard, or swapping red wine vinegar for white.

Take a look at one of Delia's favourite salad dressings using sherry vinegar and balsamic, and start experimenting now
