From pies and tarts to fishcakes, curries and casseroles, savoury recipes are the mainstay of everyone's repertoire. With almost 1400 recipes on the site, there are literally hundreds of mouthwatering ideas to choose from...
This classic tomato sauce is so good that, for Delia at least, it ignites feelings of almost reverence...the very best pasta sauce of all.
Teriyaki sauce may sound exotic but it's well worth trying: simply a mixture of soy, mirin, sake, sugar, ginger and garlic, these ingredients are used to marinate the steak, producing a tender, flavourful result.
Funny, isn't it, how a bit of lateral thinking can often result in something ingenious? Here Delia has applied the classic carbonara ingredients of cream, bacon and cheese to a risotto...with superb results!
Tilapia - also known as St Peter's fish - hails from the Caribbean, hence Delia's tropical and exotic salsa accompaniment. Serve one fish per person.
Asparagus should be enjoyed as often as possible during its short season and this is one of the finest ways of doing so: a risotto made from asparagus, broad beans, spring onions and chives – a real taste of early summer.
Delia has had a revelation - you can cook risotto in the oven, avoiding all that standing at the hob and stirring. And you know what? It's just as creamy as the classic version!
If you're put off making risotto because of all that stirring, help is at hand: this lovely oven-baked combination f rice, leeks and pancetta sits happily in the oven and is just as good as the classic version.
Easy to cook, the creamy flesh of skate marries well with a punchy-flavoured salsa such as this one. Serve it with salad and new potatoes.
Okay, so you don't get the buttery flavour, but you do get a lovely, creamy-smooth, milky white sauce which is most helpful for those needing to cut the fat content of their diet.
Yes, it's old-fashioned nursery food, but I sometimes think that things like this need a revival. I love it with baked cod cutlets and creamy mashed potatoes, and it's also excellent with gammon, but most especially I love it with Salmon Fishcakes.
