There's something highly satisfying about chucking all the ingredients into one pot and leaving them to meld into something full of flavour! Less washing-up too...
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.
Lovely spicy flavours here: just fry the prawns with onions and garlic, tomatoes, lime, wine and Thai red curry paste, cook the finest of pasta, then combine it all for a really wonderful and easy supper dish.
Sometimes it looks more elegant to serve individual pies, especially when entertaining. These lovely little morsels of meat and mushrooms really fit the bill…
Chicken with a creamy lemon sauce used to be a very popular dish and definitely deserves a revival, as it's an easy way to jazz up a simple roast chicken.
This is one of Delia's favourite curries - it uses lamb and fresh coconut which adds a vibrant freshness to the finished dish. Highly recommended!
The ultimate comfort food, this classic steamed pudding is always going to hit the spot. And it's surprisingly easy to make - then all you do is leave it to bubble away for a few hours.
Exotic, full of flavour and perfect for a winter's day, this Moroccan chicken casserole is certain to become a family favourite.
Time and again this classic Italian recipe appears in our top 10 of the most cooked recipes on the site. As Delia says, there are many imitations of this gorgeous dish but this is the real deal. Serve with a crisp salad.
This is a classic combination in France, where both sausages and lentils are used extensively in regional country cooking. Use good-quality sausages and the very best - Puy - lentils for a hearty wintry supper.
