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...
Usually, rich sauces such as mayonnaise are off the radar for dieters, but Delia has cleverly come up with a way round it and created a low-fat mayo that is based on a 19th-century original by one of her favourite cookery writers.
Who says dieters have to miss out? This wonderful low-fat dessert will please dieters and non-dieters alike and is a good way to achieve one of your five-a-day in the process!
This is just the sort of thing that you hope will be served after a convivial Sunday roast, complete with home-made custard, or cream, of course!
Make the most of summer beans and other vegetables in this gorgeous vegetarian recipe which can be eaten on its own or as an accompaniment. And if the weather is less than kind, you can serve it warm instead of cold as a salad.
Like a chunkier version of guacamole, this wonderful salsa will go down really well with barbecued chicken, fish, especially salmon, and grilled meats. If you prepare it ahead, cover with clingfilm to avoid the avocado browning.
Moussaka with a twist here, as Delia uses minced lamb to stuff aubergines in her own version of a Greek classic.
Sometimes the idea of the simpler the better makes for cooking success and never more so than in this pared-down recipe for asparagus that would make the most brilliant starter or lunch dish.
This lovely, Italian-inspired aubergine recipe is the essence of late-summer eating and would be a good addition to your barbecue repertoire.
With 30% of food being thrown away, this recipe is a good way of making sure you use up those odds and ends in the salad drawer, plus any bits of cured meat lying around! Use whatever you like - or try Delia's favourite combinations.
Extremely rich and packed with wonderful almondy amaretti flavours, this grown-up cake can just as well be served as a dinner-party dessert, with or without cream.
