Ooh la la! Delia's pulled out all the stops with a terrific selection of the very best of French cuisine, from steaks and salades to snacks such as Croque Monsieur.
The ubiquitious creme brulee is given a welcome twist in this recipe with the addition of chocolate, making it even more of a treat! And Delia has found a brilliant cheat method for the caramel topping...
Light and lovely, this chocolate chestnut log would make a great centrepiece at a Christmas party.
Light and lovely, these beautiful little souffles have the added attraction of being less likely to collapse than a standard version. Hand round chocolate sauce and cream for even more luxury (not to mention calories!)
Soufflés can be a bit tricky to get right, but if you're worried about them, these twice-baked versions are ideal as they combine all the fluffy loveliness of a soufflé with eminent good behaviour. Make them ahead or even freeze them if you prefer.
Baking a soufflé twice removes any anxiety over it collapsing before you serve it...and Roquefort is a dream ingredient, combining beautifully with the eggs.
Another souffle recipe that is perfect for entertaining as it doesn't collapse, allowing you time to get the dessert on to the table. The hot lemon curd is a revelation!
The winter months aren't the most exciting on the vegetable front, but when you can make wonderful soups like this one - from potatoes, leeks and Brussels sprouts - who cares?
This salad is a revelation - soft succulent pears, the sharp creaminess of Roquefort cheese and the dry nutty crunch of walnuts combine beautifully to make a salad that's second to none.
A classic ratatouille is wonderful, but if you roast the vegetables it takes it to another dimension and retains all the vegetables' flavour and texture.
Start this wonderful gluten-free cake a couple of days ahead, then revel in its sheer lightness, due to the lack of flour used.
