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.
No fiddly browning of the meat here: just throw it all into a casserole and three hours later you'll be swooning at the wonderful aromas that escape from this classic stew.
This frugal recipe includes aubergines, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes so will be cheapest to make in early autumn when these ingredients are in season: enjoy!
A great way to add lots of vegetables and pulses to a buffet spread - and so easy you can make it well in advance.
Delia's take on potatoes boulangere offers a cheap and sustaining supper dish, with the addition of sausages. What could be more satisfying on a cold day?
Usually, rich sauces such as mayonnaise are off the radar for dieters, but Delia has cleverly come up with a way round it and created a low-fat mayo that is based on a 19th-century original by one of her favourite cookery writers.
You could make this at any time of the year, but in Delia's view autumn lamb gives the most flavourful results. Serve it with plenty of mashed potato and root veg.
Traditionally served as an accompaniment to steak, this French version of mashed potato is well worth trying!
Anchovies, mi-cuit tomatoes, olives, oregano: all strong flavours, but combine them in a processor and you end up with this lovely pate-like result. Spread it on to toasted bread for a type of bruschetta - useful as nibbles at a party.
Who can resist such a stunning dessert? To make life easier you can use bought pastry but it's well worth making Delia's quick flaky pastry as it has a wonderful depth of flavour. Use any summer berries you like.
A vinaigrette with a difference that will pep up any summery fish or chicken you might be cooking.
