The roast beef of old England is only half the story: at last the world has recognised that our native cuisine is well worth a detour. Tuck into crumbles, casseroles and cakes to see why!
Surprisingly easy to make, this lovely mincemeat is bound to become a Christmas favourite. The addition of cranberries adds colour and flavour to a classic preserve that can be adapted easily for vegetarians.
Plenty of autumnal or wintry flavour here, as juniper, red cabbage, partridge and garlic meld into one simply brilliant pot roast. Add jacket potatoes or mash!
Cooking steak and kidney as a casserole with dumplings - rather than the more usual pie or suet pudding - makes the dish lighter. Serve it with plenty of seasonal vegetables.
This gorgeous stuffing recipe is proof that some of the old ones are the best! If you don't like peeling chestnuts, look out for vacuum-packed ones for speed and ease.
Goose is a rich meat, so needs acidity to cut through this - which is why this lovely apple and cranberry stuffing and glaze are such a success! A wonderful alternative to turkey at Christmas!
A great midweek supper, with everything cooked together. Lamb and aubergines partner each other beautifully, offering more than a hint of Mediterranean flavour.
Delia describes this as 'one of the best fish recipes ever' - and who are we to argue? What's more it's a doddle to make and will provide you with masses of lovely omega 3 essential fatty acids.
A lovely versatile fruity dessert that can be made ahead for stress-free entertaining. Serve the sauce warm or cooled: either way this is a sensation for autumn and winter.
Vegetarians certainly won't feel short-changed with this sumptuous meat-free version of shepherd's pie: in fact, meat eaters will no doubt love it as much as they do!
Delia describes this marmalade as the best she's ever tasted and marmalade makers should rejoice: it needs long, slow cooking so is really easy to make.
