Just add toast, pickles or chutney for a real taste of France, ideal for those who don't like liver.
Try to start this recipe the day before: it's a triumph of classic Greek cooking and one of the best ways of cooking pork, with wine and spices.
A great way of serving pasta to vegetarians: the pine nuts and sultanas give it an almost Sicilian feel, while the purple sprouting broccoli is a brilliant way to enjoy the all-too-short season of this green vegetable.
With its pretty white shreds this cake looks spectacular. It tastes pretty good too!
The addition of gherkins to the sauce adds crunch and a certain piquancy to this recipe, cutting through the richness of the gammon. A very impressive supper dish and special enough for entertaining.
Who can resist one of these? Basic Rice Krispie cakes are given a visual lift with the addition of silver Smarties and silver cupcake cases. They'd be perfect for a tea party.
A friend challenged Delia to come up with a chocolate cake that was low in fat: this is the luscious result, to make chocolate fans rejoice!
Having an impromptu Sunday lunch gathering and not much time to cook? The recipe fits the bill perfectly, with rosemary and caramelised apples complementing the roast pork.
