Crunchy turrón, rich butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream combine to great effect in these lovely sundaes.
With its lovely delicate green colour, this ice cream really sums up summer and is an Italian classic that is elegant enough to serve as a dinner-party dessert, particularly if your meal has an Italian or Mediterranean theme.
Apple crumble is one of your all-time favourite desserts, so why not give it an extra dimension with pecan nuts and mascarpone cream, lifting it into the luxury league.
Pavlova is perennially popular and, if you use Delia's foolproof recipe, it will work every time! The juxtaposition of sweet, crisp meringue and soft, sharp summer fruits is one of the best you can find.
This unusual pickle looks impressive and tastes wonderful! Serve the pears with cold meats and poultry... they'd go particularly well with gammon or ham, and would make excellent food gifts.
Pickled peaches are a brilliant way of keeping that summery feeling going all year round: perfect with cold meats and especially cheeses, these bottled fruits are certain to become a yearly tradition.
