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.
This beautiful cake makes a welcome change from a standard fruit cake at Christmas, but is still full of boozy fruit and flavour!
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.
Sorbets are a brilliant way of cleansing the palate between courses or as a refreshing dessert. This unusual apple version from Delia's friend, chef Galton Blackiston, can't be bettered.
These little scones are packed with Mediterranean flavours and are just the thing spread with butter at teatime. Alternatively, enjoy them with soup or other lunchtime foods.
The 'Dijonnaise' bit is, of course, mustard which perfectly complements the pork in this wonderful centrepiece for Sunday lunch - roast pork with a difference!
You really don't want these in the house if you're watching your weight as it's impossible to eat just one! Made with chocolate and almonds, they are quite irresistible and can be made with chocolate chips for a child-friendly version.
