We'd defy anyone to say they don't like Italian food! Delia's recipes cover everything from a dazzling array of pasta dishes through to pizza and such classics as Veal Milanese, Beef in Barolo and Chicken Cacciatora, a recipe that's become a firm favourite at Delia Online.
Get stirring! Although there is some mystique about making a risotto, in fact it's dead easy as long as you follow a few simple rules. This Italian classic is great on its own or with meat dishes.
This is a strong-flavoured, quite garlicky sauce that does wonders for plain mackerel fillets or some grilled trout. This behaves rather like a very thick vinaigrette and, before each serving, always needs to have another mix.
Perfect party nibbles - or a great snack. However you see these, rest assured they will be hugely popular with all who eat them.
You can cook this from scratch in about 15 minutes, making it ideal for a midweek supper, although it's luxurious enough for entertaining - and no one will believe quite how easy it is to make!
This recipe takes Delia's gutsy puttanesca sauce to another level by combining it with chicken for a very tasty supper indeed. Serve it with pasta.
These elegant little morsels are simplicity itself to make. Serve them with drinks or as part of a buffet spread...
In Italy, saltimbocca is more usually made with veal, but at Christmastime or when there's turkey in the shops, this makes a tasty alternative. What's more, it's low in fat, so a good option for those on a diet.
A fantastic variation on the toasted sandwich, or even Croque Monsieur, this is a real Italian treat!
Focaccia is an Italian flat bread made with olive oil. The flavour of the oil is important, so it's advisable to use a good, strong, fruity virgin olive oil for this.
These lovely peppers can be made in advance, so are perfect for entertaining as a starter - full of flavour, colour and intense flavours of Italian vegetables.
