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.
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.
Sometimes the idea of the simpler the better makes for cooking success and never more so than in this pared-down recipe for asparagus that would make the most brilliant starter or lunch dish.
This lovely, Italian-inspired aubergine recipe is the essence of late-summer eating and would be a good addition to your barbecue repertoire.
Steamed asparagus is wrapped with cheese and ham to produce the most wonderful light meal or starter - a great way to enjoy the short asparagus season in May and June.
Although this recipe is a great way to use up the post-Christmas parsnips and Stilton that may be hanging around, there's nothing parsimonious about it at all and it's well worth making at any time of the year.
Just what your burgers have been missing! This American classic is very easy to make and adds plenty of flavour to burgers and grilled meats.
Who says cooking is difficult? This quick recipe is a great way of cooking several veggies at once - and roasting them retains all the flavour and nutritional value. Wonderful with the Sunday roast!
Use whatever meats you like, and chicken: the most important element is this lovely tangy, fruity glaze that lifts a barbecue into another realm…
Traditionally served as an accompaniment to steak, this French version of mashed potato is well worth trying!
