Long Description to add
If you want a light meal in a hurry, then this will take you barely fifteen minutes from start to finish. If you're extra hungry, I suggest you use 2 oz (50 g) of pasta.
These exotic-sounding treats are so, so easy to make and are indulgent served at a party. You can, of course, use bought blinis and the caviar is actually roe, but who can tell?
No, not the FT - Pink 'Uns are local Saturday football papers. Because this recipe is the most beautiful shade of pink, the name seemed appropriate.
The magic word 'banoffee' does not, as you might have thought, have exotic origins: it is simply an amalgam of banana and toffee. But it is magic nonetheless – the combination of bananas, cream and toffee is inspired.
One of the most brilliant first courses Delia has ever eaten... perfect for a special occasion meal and certain to be a success with all who eat it!
This is what I call a wobbly tart – creamy and soft-centred. Leeks and goats' cheese have turned out to be a wonderful combination, and the addition of goats' cheese to the pastry gives it a nice edge.
This combination of earthy cep mushrooms and sweet caramelised onions is divine, and comes to us courtesy of Alex Mackay, the brilliant young chef who demonstrates his talents at Delia's food and wine workshops at NCFC.
This has to be one of the easiest fruit tarts to make in the world. The filling is essentially gooseberries and custard set in a pastry crust. I have found that a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar somehow really gives an added flavour dimension...
This is a first cousin of a Bakewell tart, using home-made lemon curd instead of jam, which I think goes very well with the flavour of almonds.
Here is another festive dessert that makes good use of home-made mincemeat. Serve it fairly warm, with Cumberland Rum Butter to melt through the lattice.
