Can you tell me where the tradition of feeding the Christmas cake started please? Many thanks, Chris
Q&A's? We are here to help. We being Delia and Lindsey. We work closely together and can answer any queries you have relating to Delia's recipes and our online Cookery School. Why not ask a question right now? What we can't do though, is answer questions about other recipes. (For general website queries or technical questions please click here)
Can I freeze Delia's red onion and goats cheese tartlets?
AAAHGGHHHH! I have just made the chocolate truffle torte but forgot to put the gelatine in. Will it be ok? I’m wondering if it will just come out like a chocolate cheesecake. It’s for tomorrow so I need to start again now if it’s not going up turn out well.
At the moment in Toronto Amaretti biscuits are unavailable. We would like to make the truffle torte. Is there an alternative we can use for the amaretti biscuits? Thank you
Small Christmas puddings. Lindsey - I have a small amount of mix left over from Delia's traditional - enough to fill 1 x 300 ml and 1 x 200 ml basins. Would 3 hours steaming + 1 on the day be sufficient or does it need longer?
Another question on the Mini Boeufs en Croute please Lindsey. I have to go into hospital for a brief op next week so would have to prepare the Boeufs this weekend. At the point where they're chilled, can I freeze them and if so would I defrost before cooking when needed. Thank you. Eileen
