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!

Packed with summery flavours, this easy and speedy fish recipe would make the perfect lunch or supper dish on a warm day.

 
 
Delia's Classic Christmas Pudding with Brandy SauceServes 6

Delia's Classic Christmas Pudding with Brandy Sauce

For 40 years, the nation has been making this pudding, which tastes even better if you prepare it a few weeks before Christmas then leave it in a cool place to mature. Serve with traditional brandy sauce.

 
 
Cassata SicilianaServes 6-8

Cassata Siciliana

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.

 
 
Goulash Soup with DumplingsServes 4-6

Goulash Soup with Dumplings

Hearty, substantial, comfort food: this is the type of soup that makes you wish it was winter! Serve with crusty bread for a warming supper.

 
 
English Apple and Almond Trifle with Calvados

English Apple and Almond Trifle with Calvados

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.

 
 
Spiced Apple Muffin Cake with Pecan Streusel ToppingServes 10-12

Spiced Apple Muffin Cake with Pecan Streusel Topping

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.

 
 
Sparkling Cider Jellies with Dried Fruits topped with Cider SyllabubServes 4

Sparkling Cider Jellies with Dried Fruits topped with Cider Syllabub

There's something wintry about these lovely light jellies - the cider, dried fruits and cider syllabub all combine to create a great taste sensation, indulgent enough to serve at a special-occasion dinner.

 
 
Sea Bream with Mediterranean SauceServes 2

Sea Bream with Mediterranean Sauce

Tomatoes are an intrinsic part of Mediterranean eating and here they are reduced to an intensity that brings out their full sunshine flavour. If you can't find sea bream, this is just as good with sea bass or even cod.

 
 
Loin of Pork DijonnaiseServes 6-8

Loin of Pork Dijonnaise

The 'Dijonnaise' bit is, of course, mustard which perfectly complements the pork in this wonderful centrepiece for Sunday lunch - roast pork with a difference!

 
 
OssobucoServes 4

Ossobuco

Slow-cooked shin of veal with tomatoes and wine: a true taste of Italy. Gremolata - garlic, parsley and lemon zest - sprinkled over at the end makes it even better. Serve with rice, preferably risotto.
