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...
The crunch of the walnuts and the tang of the blue cheese combine to make this a really wonderful vegetarian pasta dish that's made in minutes.
Click on the recipe to reveal Delia's favourite crumble topping - and a filling that would be particularly good at Christmastime, when mincemeat is definitely flavour of the month.
As Delia says, this salad is a good one for winter when the summer saladings are but a distant memory. Apples, cider and Camembert are just brilliant together, and this can be served on its own for lunch or as an accompaniment.
Who can resist such a stunning dessert? To make life easier you can use bought pastry but it's well worth making Delia's quick flaky pastry as it has a wonderful depth of flavour. Use any summer berries you like.
Particularly good with pork, due to the affinity between that meat and apples, this lovely rosti recipe is one that you will make again and again. The apples also add extra flavour.
This stunning prawn starter is easy to make and will wow your guests with its intriguing mix of flavours - a wonderful way to start a special meal.
Light and fresh with zingy citrus and herbs: what more could you want from a veggie pasta dish when you're hungry but don't have much time to cook?
Unlike the classic gazpacho, this version includes the lovely aniseed flavours of fennel for a really Mediterranean touch. We know you'll love it and, if the weather is less than summery, it can also be served warm.
Although this sublime chocolate dessert includes home-made (and very easy!) vanilla ice cream, if time is short you could always cheat and use a good bought one, then just add the hot chocolate sauce and toppings. Easy!
These are so good we reckon you won't want to restrict them to Easter eating: moreishly spicy, packed with dried fruit and with a freshness, softness and flavour that puts bought hot cross buns in the shade every time.
