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...
This one's a complete doddle and takes no time at all: a new take on this season's asparagus, accompanied by a creamy cheese sauce and freshly poached eggs. Makes you want to become a vegetarian on sight!
Sorbets are a brilliant way of cleansing the palate between courses or as a refreshing dessert. This unusual apple version from Delia's friend, chef Galton Blackiston, can't be bettered.
Marinate tomatoes in vodka, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce for a couple of days and you'll have a canape that's an explosion of flavours!
It may look as if this Italian classic took hours to make, but in fact you just assemble a few ingredients in a loaf tin and there you have it - a lovely dessert that will earn you plenty of compliments.
Mmmm…apple fans will swoon over this fabulous trifle, with its Calvados-soaked trifle sponges, apple puree and custard layer, with mascarpone and almonds on top.
This is a lovely way to serve a roast chicken in the spring and summer months when fresh herbs are in abundance. The grapes add fruitiness and moisture to the stuffing.
Instead of making individual muffins, this recipe makes one large cake (or you could do small ones if you prefer). Although this one is made with apple, you could equally use plums or apricots in the summer.
These little scones are packed with Mediterranean flavours and are just the thing spread with butter at teatime. Alternatively, enjoy them with soup or other lunchtime foods.
Those who find a traditional fruit cake too heavy might enjoy Stollen which, although it still contains dried fruit, it altogether lighter. And, of course, the sweet-toothed will love the seam of marzipan running through the middle!
This classic yeasty, fruity tea bread is traditional in Wales. During her Welsh childhood, Delia remembers it being spread with lots of butter at teatime. Easy and cheap to make, it keeps well and is a real treat.
