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!
Pot-roasting used to be popular but then fell out of favour. We reckon it's well overdue for a revival, as you don't have to worry about it drying out as you would with a roast and the meat just sits and cooks happily by itself.
This unctuous sauce keeps for a week and so can be called into service for other fish dishes too. Make it with lime and coriander for a more oriental touch. Skate is hugely underrated, easy to cook and well worth the effort.
OK, this isn't the healthiest dessert on record, but we all deserve a no-holds-barred bit of indulgence now and then. Anyone who loves chocolate will thrill to this wonderful baked cheesecake. To avoid it cracking, allow to cool in the oven.
The combination of parsnips, apple and spices is original and truly delectable: an unusual soup that's certain to become a regular in your repertoire.
Raspberries may not be the obvious choice for a crumble, but their sharpness perfectly offsets the sweetness and texture of the topping. Give it a go!
Delia's delicious take on duck a l'orange brings this retro favourite bang up to date with the sharp, tangy flavour of Seville orange marmalade a great foil for the richness of the duck...
This very rich terrine is a wonderful, prepare-ahead starter or component of a buffet spread. Alternatively serve it with pickles and good bread for a lunchtime feast.
For a change to the usual boiled or steamed cauliflower, try Delia's oven-roasted recipe
Cheap, nutritious and packed with flavour, the humble herring deserves wider recognition, according to Delia. This recipe shows off its tasty potential really well.
Traditionally we use butter to enrich mashed potatoes, but try this Italian-inspired version using garlicky olive oil. It's brilliant with roasted and grilled meats and fish.
