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!
Light and full of Christmas flavour, this steamed panettone pudding will go down a treat after the turkey on Christmas Day! Serve it with an alcoholic citrus sauce for a festive finale to remember...
Glazing parsnips with mustard and maple syrup gives them a whole new dimension… wonderful with any roast meats or poultry or as a vegetarian dish.
Essentially these are plain biscuits, given the star treatment with icing, silver balls and anything else you care to add! Hang them on the tree or wrap them in Cellophane to give as gifts (a great way to keep children busy too!)
Give plain cabbage the four-start treatment in this tasty recipe that would go particularly well, says Delia, with bangers and mash.
You need small, tightly enclosed Brussels sprouts for this recipe, in which they are jazzed up with bacon and sherry vinegar. We defy anyone to turn round and claim not to like sprouts after trying this!
This has to be one of the most sublime combinations: soft, creamy scrambled egg, together with the subtle, smoky flavour of the salmon.
Winter carrots can lack flavour and appeal, but if you add coriander seeds and slightly caramelise them in the oven, they seem to take on a new lease of life.
This lovely caramelised fennel would go brilliantly with any fish, meat or chicken but maybe, due to the inclusion of cider and cider vinegar, particularly well with pork.
These stunning little canapes are heaven on a plate! Cold Yorkshire pudding may not sound that alluring but add rare roast beef and you have the most brilliant combination. A party must!
Roasting vegetables is a great way of maximising their nutritional benefit as the vitamins don't leach out into the cooking water - and they're full of flavour and texture. This recipe uses all those wonderful root veg in one go.
