Entertaining

Although it's lovely to have friends round for dinner, the last thing you want is to be chained to the kitchen. Delia's recipes for entertaining allow you to prepare ahead, or involve minimal work before serving, so you can have a stress-free, relaxed evening as well!

Chocolate Mascarpone Cheesecake with Fruit and Nuts served with Creme Fraiche

OK, this isn't the healthiest dessert on record, but we all deserve a no-holds-barred bit of indulgence now and then. Anyone who loves chocolate will thrill to this wonderful baked cheesecake. To avoid it cracking, allow to cool in the oven.

Although risotto is usually savoury, think rice pudding and you'll get the point of this lovely, unusual chocolate dessert.

Raspberries may not be the obvious choice for a crumble, but their sharpness perfectly offsets the sweetness and texture of the topping. Give it a go!

 
 
Roast Seville Orange-glazed Duck with Port Wine SauceServes 4

Roast Seville Orange-glazed Duck with Port Wine Sauce

Delia's delicious take on duck a l'orange brings this retro favourite bang up to date with the sharp, tangy flavour of Seville orange marmalade a great foil for the richness of the duck...

 
 
Pheasant TerrineServes 10-12

Pheasant Terrine

This very rich terrine is a wonderful, prepare-ahead starter or component of a buffet spread. Alternatively serve it with pickles and good bread for a lunchtime feast.

 
 
Shiitake Broth with Sesame ToastServes 6

Shiitake Broth with Sesame Toast

Low-fat recipes often need quite assertive ingredients in order to give you plenty of taste and flavour: this lovely Japanese-inspired soup is a great example, with shiitake mushrooms adding punch and meaty depth.

 
 
Grilled Venison Steaks with Red Onion, Grape and Raisin ConfitServes 4

Grilled Venison Steaks with Red Onion, Grape and Raisin Confit

Venison is a lovely meat and, because it's low in fat, it's ideal for those on a diet. The red onion and grape confit is a superb accompaniment and would also work well with pork, gammon or sausages.

Make these the day before you want to eat them: creamy, luxurious and so special, these lovely low-fat cheesecakes are the perfect treat for dieters!

 
 
Swordfish CevicheServes 4

Swordfish Ceviche

What could be more enticing on a hot day than a plate of ceviche? Don't be put off by the fact that the fish isn't cooked in the conventional way...it tastes just as good. You could use any firm-fleshed fish for this if you can't find swordfish.
