Rhubarb CompôteServes 3

Rhubarb Compôte

A wonderfully easy way to serve rhubarb, this lovely compote totally avoids that common problem with rhubarb - mush! - as it cooks slowly in the oven without water to keep its texture and shape but add loads of flavour.

 
 
Summer Fruit Compôte scented with Lemon GrassServes 6

Summer Fruit Compôte scented with Lemon Grass

Predominantly fruit, this is a healthy summery dessert to serve to dieters who often feel they miss out on the pudding front. You can use any fruit combination you like - the lemon grass adds a subtle and intriguing element.

 
 
Scallops VeroniqueServes 4 as a starter

Scallops Veronique

There's more than a hint of French influence in this superb seafood recipe - just the thing for a luxurious starter or main course when you really want to push the boat out!

 
 
Confit of Duck Serves 8

Confit of Duck

Allow four weeks for the flavours of this confit to develop fully… a French classic that would make a good special-occasion dish as, once it's ready, you just need to cook it in the oven for 25 minutes.

 
 
Fallen Chocolate Souffle with Armagnac PrunesServes 6-8

Fallen Chocolate Souffle with Armagnac Prunes

This is the recipe for all those who daren't attempt a souffle: it's supposed to sink! You can freeze both the souffle and sauce and, if you prefer, use port or amaretto instead of French-inspired Armagnac for the prunes.

 
 
Spiced Cranberry and Claret JellyMakes about one 17½ fl oz (500 ml) preserving jar

Spiced Cranberry and Claret Jelly

Subtly spiced, this wonderful jelly will give you a taste of Christmas all year round with roast meats, game, cheese or pate.

 
 
Fillets of Sole VéroniqueServes 2 as main course or 4 as a starter

Fillets of Sole Véronique

Often made with chicken, Delia believes this delicate recipe deserves a revival… and who could argue with that? A wonderful combination of cream, grapes and vermouth, it perfectly complements fish or chicken.

 
 
Prune and Armagnac Creole CakeMakes an 8 inch (20 cm) square cake

Spiced Pickled Apricots and Plums in ArmagnacMakes 5 x 1 lb (350 ml) capacity jars

Spiced Pickled Apricots and Plums in Armagnac

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?
