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.
Delia describes this classic chocolate recipe as 'not only one of the best desserts I've tried but also one of the easiest', so if you're looking for an indulgent dessert to impress, that can even be made ahead and frozen, this is it!
Plump little quail are the ultimate in single-serving foods...and very easy to cook and serve (no carving needed!). If you can't find vine leaves, use foil instead.
A great recipe for entertaining, this is simply a luxurious fish pie. You can make it in advance and freeze it for a stress-free time on the day - all you need with it is a crisp green salad.
It helps if you separate the whites into a cup first before adding them to the bowl, then if one breaks, it won't ruin the rest.
Delia adds a few ingredients to her Homemade Mayonnaise recipe to make a sauce that goes well with meat and fish
Whole Egg Mayonnaise is transformed in to Chunky Tartare Sauce, great for dunking chips in!
Twice-baked Roquefort Souffles can be made the day before you need them.
This recipe was kindly given to me by a lady called Christine who lives in Nice. You'd think that when they eat it there it would be made with fresh tomatoes ripened in the Provencal sun - but no, she uses tinned tomatoes and bought puffed pastry.
This tart can also be made with Parmesan pastry, you can also add a tablespoon of finely chopped sage to the filling and arrange sage leaves on the top before it is sprinkled with cheese and baked
Serve with foaming hollandaise flavoured with a rounded tablespoon of freshly chopped dill.
