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.
Perfect for a lazy summer lunch, this one-pot dish simply bubbles away on the hob for a couple of hours while you find more relaxing things to do with your time, such as putting your feet up and enjoying a glass of chilled wine!
Sorbets are a brilliant way of cleansing the palate between courses or as a refreshing dessert. This unusual apple version from Delia's friend, chef Galton Blackiston, can't be bettered.
Marinate tomatoes in vodka, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce for a couple of days and you'll have a canape that's an explosion of flavours!
It may look as if this Italian classic took hours to make, but in fact you just assemble a few ingredients in a loaf tin and there you have it - a lovely dessert that will earn you plenty of compliments.
Mmmm…apple fans will swoon over this fabulous trifle, with its Calvados-soaked trifle sponges, apple puree and custard layer, with mascarpone and almonds on top.
Inspired by one of Delia's favourite Italian classics - and a mystery trip to Venice - this recipe is a great way to cook liver or, indeed, fillet steak if you really want to push the boat out for a special occasion.
Use the right-sized tin and you can't go wrong with this blissfully easy cake - everyone you make it for will be amazed that it was so simple as it tastes divine.
Instead of making individual muffins, this recipe makes one large cake (or you could do small ones if you prefer). Although this one is made with apple, you could equally use plums or apricots in the summer.
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.
Those who find a traditional fruit cake too heavy might enjoy Stollen which, although it still contains dried fruit, it altogether lighter. And, of course, the sweet-toothed will love the seam of marzipan running through the middle!
