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.
If you're watching the pennies, shoulder of lamb is much more inexpensive than a leg joint or other cuts. Turn it into something really special with this flavoursome stuffing of rice, olives, onions and herbs.
Easy and nutritious, this is the sort of recipe that every student should have up his or her sleeve as it costs very little but tastes sensational and uses storecupboard ingredients - perfect for when you haven't time to go shopping.
A classic boeuf bourguignon, but made with cider instead of red wine. Although this is a frugal recipe, it's so good you could easily serve it when entertaining.
Delia's take on potatoes boulangere offers a cheap and sustaining supper dish, with the addition of sausages. What could be more satisfying on a cold day?
Who says dieters have to miss out? This wonderful low-fat dessert will please dieters and non-dieters alike and is a good way to achieve one of your five-a-day in the process!
This is just the sort of thing that you hope will be served after a convivial Sunday roast, complete with home-made custard, or cream, of course!
Make the most of summer beans and other vegetables in this gorgeous vegetarian recipe which can be eaten on its own or as an accompaniment. And if the weather is less than kind, you can serve it warm instead of cold as a salad.
Like a chunkier version of guacamole, this wonderful salsa will go down really well with barbecued chicken, fish, especially salmon, and grilled meats. If you prepare it ahead, cover with clingfilm to avoid the avocado browning.
As Delia says, this recipe has plenty of imitators but all too often it's disappointing. Not here: rich, meaty, packed with Italian flavour, it does take a long time to cook, but that's the secret of a perfect Bolognese.
You could make this at any time of the year, but in Delia's view autumn lamb gives the most flavourful results. Serve it with plenty of mashed potato and root veg.
