Thai Fish Curry with MangoServes 4 generously

Thai Fish Curry with Mango

You won't believe how utterly simple and easy this is, and yet it tastes exotic and wonderful and, what's more, it can all be prepared well in advance and the fish added about 10 minutes before you want to eat it.

 
 
Peach Wine Jellies with Peach PureeServes 8

Peach Wine Jellies with Peach Puree

Jellies are always a good bet in the summer months, when all you really want is something light and refreshing. The joy of these is that they can also be made in advance, so are ideal when entertaining.

 
 
Fresh Shelled Pea SoupServes 4

Fresh Shelled Pea Soup

Shelled peas enjoy a brief season in the summer and if you've run out of other ways to use them, try this wonderful summery soup with lettuce, which can be served hot or cold, depending on the weather.

 
 
Piedmont Roasted PeppersServes 4-8 as a starter

Piedmont Roasted Peppers

Proof that the best recipes are often the easiest to prepare, this is a wonderful way to enjoy peppers in late summer when they're in season.

 
 
Strawberries in Raspberry PureeServes 4-6

Strawberries in Raspberry Puree

Effortless yet impressive and totally mouthwatering, this lovely fruity dessert should be in everyone's summer repertoire when soft fruit is in season.

 
 
Redcurrant JellyMakes two 0.5 litre jars

Redcurrant Jelly

Delia's redcurrant jelly is adapted from a 19th-century recipe and is a million miles from the over-processed sweet version all too often found in the shops today. Try it with lamb and cold cuts.

 
 
Char-grilled Tuna with Warm Coriander and Caper VinaigretteServes 2

Char-grilled Tuna with Warm Coriander and Caper Vinaigrette

Because British domestic grills are so variable in their efficiency, I think a ridged grill pan is a very good investment. It's particularly good for thick tuna steaks and gives those lovely charred stripes that look so attractive.

 
 
Watercress and Lancashire Cheese BreadMakes 1 loaf

Watercress and Lancashire Cheese Bread

What could be easier than this delightful bread, which can also be made as a gluten-free version? Serve it with soup, lunch dishes or on its own, liberally slathered with butter.
