Savoury Mini Muffins with Two Flavourings Makes 24

Savoury Mini Muffins with Two Flavourings

For a fresh approach to party nibbles, I offer you these magic little savouries that can be served warm from the oven or, if made in advance, frozen, defrosted and re-heated. First some simple muffin mathematics: the basic muffin recipe makes 24

 
 
Terrine of Turkey and Bacon with WalnutsServes 10-12

Terrine of Turkey and Bacon with Walnuts

This is just perfect for the party season, as it will feed a lot of people as a first course and is very little trouble to make. Serve with crusty bread cut into thick slices, then toasted.

 
 
AnchoïadeServes 1

Anchoïade

This is a really gutsy snack, served on toasted French bread, and redolent of sunny picnics in Provence!

 
 
Kipper pâtéServes 1

Kipper pâté

You could use frozen kipper fillets for this, but even better would be a proper kipper. By the time you've removed the skin and bones from one medium-sized kipper you should be left with approximately 4 oz (110 g) fish.

 
 
Russian Blinis with Smoked Salmon and CaviarServes 8

Russian Blinis with Smoked Salmon and Caviar

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?

 
 
Roast Gammon with Blackened Crackling with Citrus, Rum and Raisin SauceServes 6

Roast Gammon with Blackened Crackling with Citrus, Rum and Raisin Sauce

The citrus, rum and raisin sauce is the perfect foil for the richness of the gammon and the sweet crisp crackling. This would make a superb centrepiece for a hot buffet at Christmas.

 
 
Smoked Salmon Pink 'UnsServes 5

Smoked Salmon Pink 'Uns

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.

 
 
Wild Mushroom Tartlets with Poached Quails' EggsServes 6

Wild Mushroom Tartlets with Poached Quails' Eggs

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!

 
 
Leek and Goats' Cheese TartServes 6 as a starter or 4 as a main course

Leek and Goats' Cheese Tart

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.

 
 
Cep and Onion Tarts with Cep Cream and Parsley Butter ShallotsServes 4

Cep and Onion Tarts with Cep Cream and Parsley Butter Shallots

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.
