Green shoots pushing through the ground - at last! - herald the end of winter dearths. Enjoy spring eating with early crops of vegetables, watercress and shellfish...
Who says risotto has to be stirred? Well, yes, if it's a classic one, but this tastes every bit as good and is just left to its own devices on the hob. Brilliant with braised meat dishes and casseroles.
Although moussaka is a Greek classic, Delia has added an Italian element with a ricotta topping for a creamy and lighter touch than the traditional bechamel sauce.
This sumptuous fish dish tastes a million dollars yet can be assembled and cooked in just 10 minutes - who says special-occasion food demands all day in the kitchen?
Although leeks are the traditional ingredient in a vichyssoise, the inclusion of lemon grass instead gives the soup a wonderful citrusy oriental flavour that really lends itself to serving chilled.
Cooking meat in wine adds flavour and prevents it from drying out, which is why this recipe is such a failsafe when entertaining. The Parmesan mashed potatoes are a wonderful accompaniment and keep the Italian vibe going.
Spread home-made tartare sauce, breadcrumbs and cheese over any white fish fillets for a lunch or supper dish in minutes. Who says fast food is a bad idea?
Completely irresistible, this wonderful pudding features a layer of ripe, juicy peaches topped with a cloud of fluffy almond sponge. Pudding heaven!
As the title says, this cake is just made in one bowl to the time-honoured all-in-one creaming method. Add fresh raspberries and mascarpone cream for a really summery treat!
A summer pasta dish if ever there was one, this recipe combines peas and beans with a rich cream sauce. If you've got vegetarians to feed, this is perfect…
Souffled omelettes are a great way of making a plain omelette really special and the addition of Cashel Blue - or, indeed any tangy, blue cheese - will give you a supper dish for one that's out of this world. Serve with a tomato salad.
