The months between summer and Christmas yield some fantastic ingredients such as root veg, mushrooms, figs and game. Delia's recipes make the most of autumnal highlights.
Although this sublime chocolate dessert includes home-made (and very easy!) vanilla ice cream, if time is short you could always cheat and use a good bought one, then just add the hot chocolate sauce and toppings. Easy!
These are so good we reckon you won't want to restrict them to Easter eating: moreishly spicy, packed with dried fruit and with a freshness, softness and flavour that puts bought hot cross buns in the shade every time.
Eat these hot or cold: with plenty of Mediterranean flavours - cinnamon, pine nuts, thyme - these wonderful summery stuffed tomatoes are a good way of using up a glut from the garden and will please vegetarians no end.
A vinaigrette with a difference that will pep up any summery fish or chicken you might be cooking.
Redolent of Greece, Turkey and the Middle East where stuffed vegetables are de rigueur, this lovely vegetarian recipe is a flavourful way to eat cabbage in the winter months.
On their own, lentils can be a bit bland, but with this spiced lentil cakes Delia has added plenty of flavour with tomato, herbs and spices. A brilliant vegetarian recipe that's cheap and easy to make, but also extremely nutritious and filling.
You can now buy vine leaves in supermarkets, so this easy vegetarian recipe just got even easier! It will take you to the Greek islands in seconds, filled as it is with all those flavours of the eastern Mediterranean.
Pork and cheese is a classic combination, used here by Delia to create a substantial and flavourful supper or lunchtime bake with the addition of spinach.
An Italian classic with an unbeatable vinaigrette, this lovely summery vegetarian dish demands to be eaten outside with plenty of crusty bread. Try to find the very best-quality mozzarella you can, ideally buffalo.
This is one of Delia's favourite curries - it uses lamb and fresh coconut which adds a vibrant freshness to the finished dish. Highly recommended!
