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!

Mini Yorkshire Puddings with Rare Beef and Horseradish and Mustard Crème Fraîche Sauce

These stunning little canapes are heaven on a plate! Cold Yorkshire pudding may not sound that alluring but add rare roast beef and you have the most brilliant combination. A party must!

 
 
Oven-roasted Winter VegetablesServes 6

Oven-roasted Winter Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is a great way of maximising their nutritional benefit as the vitamins don't leach out into the cooking water - and they're full of flavour and texture. This recipe uses all those wonderful root veg in one go.

 
 
Purée of Parsnips with Crème Fraîche and NutmegServes 8

Purée of Parsnips with Crème Fraîche and Nutmeg

This light, fluffy puree is an unusual way of serving parsnips, but the addition of nutmeg brings a wonderful warmth and spice to it. Would be fabulous with sausages and roast meat.

 
 
Spiced Cranberry and Claret JellyMakes about one 17½ fl oz (500 ml) preserving jar

Spiced Cranberry and Claret Jelly

Subtly spiced, this wonderful jelly will give you a taste of Christmas all year round with roast meats, game, cheese or pate.

 
 
Fillets of Sole VéroniqueServes 2 as main course or 4 as a starter

Fillets of Sole Véronique

Often made with chicken, Delia believes this delicate recipe deserves a revival… and who could argue with that? A wonderful combination of cream, grapes and vermouth, it perfectly complements fish or chicken.

 
 
Cumberland Rum ButterServes 8

Cumberland Rum Butter

With just three ingredients it's possible to make this classic accompaniment to mince pies, Christmas pudding and other festive finales. But it would also partner pies, crumbles and tarts all year round.

 
 
Traditional Raspberry TrifleServes 6-8

Traditional Raspberry Trifle

Using fresh raspberries for this luscious trifle makes it even more of a treat, with trifle sponges, raspberry jam and custard adding the other dimensions. You could even use a ready-made custard if short of time.

 
 
Traditional Pork, Sage and Onion StuffingMakes enough to stuff 1 x 14 lb (6.3 kg) oven-ready bronze free-range turkey

Traditional Pork, Sage and Onion Stuffing

This is a wonderful recipe for stuffing the turkey as the sausagemeat and onion both add moisture to the bird while it's cooking. And sage is the ideal herb with pork, so is the obvious choice here.

 
 
Prune and Armagnac Creole CakeMakes an 8 inch (20 cm) square cake

Prune and Armagnac Creole Cake

This beautiful cake makes a welcome change from a standard fruit cake at Christmas, but is still full of boozy fruit and flavour!

 
 
Mussel and Saffron SoupServes 4

Mussel and Saffron Soup

Mussels are so cheap yet are often overlooked by home cooks. Use them in this fragrant soup, made golden with saffron, for a wonderful dinner-party recipe. Nowadays mussels come ready-cleaned, so it's made in minutes!
