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.
I always like to serve a jelly at Christmas time because when there is a lot of rich food around it is so nice to have something cool, light and refreshing at the end of a meal.
Neck fillet of lamb provides very sweet meat that responds perfectly to long, slow cooking and if you add pre-soaked dried green flageolets to cook alongside it these, too, absorb the sweet flavours of the lamb.
This is a lovely way to serve a roast chicken in the spring and summer months when fresh herbs are in abundance. The grapes add fruitiness and moisture to the stuffing.
Sea bass has a real feel of luxury about it and served with this gorgeous lentil salsa would make a great dish when entertaining... even non dieters will enjoy it!
Using mainly storecupboard ingredients, this wonderful fish recipe is packed with punchy flavours that will go down a treat with all who eats it.
Based on a classic French dish, this couldn't be easier to make, with the tarragon, sherry vinegar and sherry adding plenty of flavour. A lovely summer casserole.
This is the perfect main course salad for lunch, with perhaps some rice salad to go with it.
Supper in five minutes? This speedy vegetarian soufflé omelette is so easy and is particularly appealing to those who are wary of making a standard soufflé in the oven.
Ring the changes with this sumptuous pate - perfect for Christmas or any other special occasion.
You can use chicken for this recipe, but it's well worth seeking out guinea fowl in the autumn and winter months as it has a wonderful depth of flavour, here accentuated by Calvados, creme fraiche and apples.
