The weather forecast's good so why not rustle up some of Delia's pukka picnic food and head for the great outdoors?
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.
Simply the old favourite apple tarte Tatin turned into a savoury version, red onions are mellowed and caramelised with balsamic vinegar, and look spectacularly good. The cheese and thyme pastry provides the perfect background.
Delia describes this vegetarian tart as the 'easiest and most sublime tomato recipe on record'. We're sure you'll agree - serve it at barbecues, picnics and any other outdoor event.
Using smoked fish in a tart gives masses of flavour - and all you need to accompany it is a green salad or some steamed veg.
Here Delia has brought together two of her favourite summer foods - peppers and tomatoes - and transformed them into a wonderful tart for the colder months.
I've always wanted to do a non-meat equivalent of a pork pie and at last I've achieved it – serve with home-made pickles or chutneys. This is perfect food for outdoor eating and picnics
No one could fail to be delighted with these gorgeous little pies...in summer, they're perfect for picnics or for lunch, served with salads and chutneys.
Cornish pasties often have too much pastry and not enough filling. Make one big pie insead, which is also a lot quicker than making individual pasties
The last thing you want on a picnic is a pie that disintegrates which is why this one - which holds its shape well and is easy to slice - is perfectly portable.
