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...
Surely one of the nation's most popular family supper dishes, chilli con carne is a spicy treat, especially if you make Delia's version, with lime, coriander and black beans.
Get our your candles in Chianti bottles and step back to the 1960's with Delia's classic Boeuf Bourguignon.
Canned baked beans definitely have their culinary place but if you want to eat the real deal, this frugal recipe is in a totally different league - a really nutritious dish.
Using smoked pimentón from southern Spain gives this goulash authenticity and a wonderful smoky, spicy flavour: one of Delia's favourite casseroles.
This is delightfully simple as everything goes into one pot, no accompaniments are needed, and it provides a complete menu for two people. It is also very good with flageolet or borlotti beans.
A great recipe to make ahead, this one makes the best use of older birds which respond beautifully to braising with, in this case, a lovely rich Madeira sauce.
Borlotti beans and pancetta give this lovely hearty dish plenty of Italian flavour - just what you need at the end of a busy day!
While the French classic steak au poivre, or peppered steak, is a wonderful idea, steak is expensive and in the winter the original recipe can be adapted to braising – which is far easier for entertaining and tastes every bit as good. I like to serve
Cheap and readily available, wood pigeon is a game bird that's well worth discovering...and Delia's scrumptious apple and shallot confit makes it even more special. Serve the confit with other game birds too.
This wonderful recipe combines the flavour of roast lamb with rosemary and mint - traditional herbs for lamb - plus redcurrants. A truly special way to serve up Sunday lunch...
