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!
Not for nothing do the French refer to the British as 'les rosbifs' - this superlative roast, with traditional trimmings of Yorkshire pudding and horseradish, sums up the best of our classic dishes.
Roast pork with crisp crackling makes a handsome Sunday roast - and if you follow Delia's advice for the perfect apple sauce you'll be in food heaven!
Oven-baked potatoes with rosemary will be a great partner for any roast or grilled meats...and the joy of this recipe is that it just gets on and cooks by itself once it's in the oven, leaving you free to look after the rest of the meal.
Celeriac is a winter root vegetable that all cooks should be aware of as it has a wonderful flavour and lends itself beautifully to soups, bakes, gratins and, here, mashed with other ingredients.
Christmas pud with a difference: rum and coconut ice cream, with rum-soaked fruit...what could make a more delectable change from the traditional steamed version at the end of a rich meal?
It's hard to believe how good this quick and easy recipe is - the combination of flavours is quite superb. Enjoy it for lunch or supper served wtih buttery spinach.
As Delia says, this recipe is unanimously agreed within food circles, to be the best lentil recipe in existence. Why not give it a try and see what you think?
The peppery, delicate leaves of watercress lend themselves well to chilled soup, a refreshing starter or lunch dish on a hot day.
This recipe is a wonderful way to ring the changes from the ubiquitous plum crumble in late summer when plums are at their peak. Serve this with cream or ice cream for real indulgence.
Potted meats and fish were originally invented to eke out fresh foods but in fact there's something so glorious about potted crab (which must come from Cromer!) that it's worth giving it top billing as a great meal in its own right.
