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.
Preserved properly, beetroot has none of the overpowering vinegar flavour that you all too often find in jars. Instead, it has a wonderful sweetness and flavour that makes it ideal with all cold meats and cheese.
The cheese we used for the sauce in this recipe was Gorgonzola, but Roquefort is also extremely good. Vegetarians might like to know that a vegetarian parmesan-style cheese is available from www.bookhamcheese.co.uk
Celeriac comes in difficult sizes for a recipe for four people, so I have used two small ones, which will make enough for everyone to have seconds. Feel free to make the soup the day before and reheat it. The celeriac crisps can also be made the day
This recipe is delightfully different and makes a complete meal for two to three people with perhaps a simple green salad with a lemony dressing as an accompaniment.
Goose is a rich meat, so needs acidity to cut through this - which is why this lovely apple and cranberry stuffing and glaze are such a success! A wonderful alternative to turkey at Christmas!
Fish and spinach go remarkably well together and nowhere better than in this luscious supper dish, full of creamy cheese sauce, herbs and fish topped with Parmesan breadcrumbs.
One of the bane's of any dieter's life is that feeling of hunger. So this gorgeous, fat-free soup could be the answer: it's filling and satisfying without piling on the pounds.
For me, mussels are still a luxury food that cost very little money. I don't think anything can match their exquisite, fresh-from-the-sea flavour. In this recipe every precious drop of mussel juice is used, which gives a lovely, concentrated flavour.
Parsnips and curry spices make a wonderful combination, with the heat of the spices offsetting the sweetness of the root vegetables. This is a great dish to serve with curry or as a side dish.
