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.
Make these a month before Christmas and you'll receive plenty of compliments when serving them with cheese and cold cuts. Or why not make up some batches as gifts for food-loving friends?
Popular in the South of France, this lovely pizza-type recipe draws a lot of its inspiration from nearby Italy. You can easily ring the changes with the topping, too, for a great lunch or supper dish.
This is Delia's chosen version of Hollandaise these days: it's lighter, goes further, doesn't curdle and, unlike a classic Hollandaise, can be reheated or even frozen.
This beautiful cake makes a welcome change from a standard fruit cake at Christmas, but is still full of boozy fruit and flavour!
If you want an utterly foolproof recipe for Hollandaise Sauce, look no further. This one even freezes and if you're nervous about curdling, don't be as it just won't happen!
Wintry comfort food at its best - this French classic feature pork, prunes, apples and spices with a crisp potato topping. All you need to serve it with is some seasonal greens or winter carrots.
Apple charlotte is an old favourite, but when pears are in season and you've had your fill of poached pears and pears with chocolate sauce, use them to make a charlotte.
Perfect for a lazy summer lunch, this one-pot dish simply bubbles away on the hob for a couple of hours while you find more relaxing things to do with your time, such as putting your feet up and enjoying a glass of chilled wine!
When the heat is on, you either don't feel like cooking or even eating a great deal. This recipe fits the bill perfectly and would also be ideal at a drinks party or as a nibble before dinner.
A flavour of Christmas here - a chocolate log with a wonderful filling of chocolate mousse and prunes in Armagnac. It would also make the most impressive dessert - minus the holly! - at any time of the year.
