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.
These pizza bases are the real thing, made in the Le Marche region of Italy with long fermentation, then stone-baked with a brushing of passata, but any favourite pizza base will do.
Mascarpone has both a richness and lightness that makes it the ideal ingredient for summery desserts. Add plenty of seasonal berries and you'll be in heaven!
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.
What a wonderfully easy ice cream this is! The addition of nutmeg makes it a real winner with any hot apple dessert as the flavours complement each other to perfection.
If you have an aversion to kneading and proving dough, you'll love this recipe, made with scone dough for speed and ease. Vary the toppings according to what you like or need to use up. Either way, it's a real winner!
Yes, smoked fish is expensive, but you'll find that a little goes a long way in this luxurious supper dish for two, so go on - why not treat yourself?
Sea bass fillets are readily available and the simple salsa verde gives them a touch of luxury. This wonderful summery recipe serves two but can easily be doubled for easy entertaining.
I think these twice-baked, very crisp biscuits are great for children to make and eat. After that, the adults in true Italian fashion sit down with a glass of chilled Vin Santo, and dip them into it before each bite.
This is my adaptation of a cake still served in the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice. You can eat it sipping a Bellini cocktail or with coffee at any time of day. But for me, lunch in the restaurant with this as a dessert has always been a sublime treat.
