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.
Use a simple recipe for Basic Pancakes, add a few extra ingredients and voila - Crepes Suzette.
Good, homely comfort food that can easily be elevated to dinner-party status is how Delia describes these elegant little pastry parcels. If you haven't tried them, you don't know what you're missing…
Light, almondy and chewy, most people love macaroons with their edible rice paper bases. You may like to know that, for a change, the recipe works very well with ground walnuts too (we call them Walleroons!).
Almond Tuiles are unbelievably easy to make and are the most elegant biscuits to serve with fruit fools and ice creams.
Easy to make and look very impressive!
Pissaladiere is a French take on pizza. A thin base topped with onions, garlic and herbs
Dress a green salad with your favourite dressing and add Parmesan Croutons.
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.
A great salad that can easily be served on its own, with crusty bread. You can use whatever ingredients you like but avocado, garlic sausage, mushrooms and lettuce are Delia's preferred combination.
Spinach and ricotta are a classic combination in cooking - adding an anchovy sauce is truly inspirational, as it provides a salty element that sets the recipe off to a tee.
