Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken cacciatora

    • eliza on October 02, 2017

      I've made this many times. Very easy and tastes great too. I use canned tomatoes if I don't have fresh ones. It freezes well too. Recipe is available on Delia's website.

  • Shepherd's pie with cheese-crusted leeks

    • adrienneyoung on December 29, 2013

      Wonderful. Better with a hit of worcestershire sauce and better without the frizzled leeks.

    • JennyR on January 16, 2014

      I find it better if you soften the leeks in butter before adding.

    • Allie80 on November 19, 2017

      Agree with JennyR, better to soften the leeks first, I then stir through the mash rather than placing on top.

    • TLouise on December 30, 2020

      A nice dish which I would make again. I wish I had read these comments before making it however as softened leeks would have been better and worcester sauce was definitely needed. I served with a side of Savoy Cabbage, peas and pancetta which made up for the pie being a little bland.

    • Robrien on June 23, 2021

      This is a family favourite. We don't bother with the leeks, substitute beef for lamb and add mushrooms. It is a good comfort food.

  • Roasted salmon fillets with a crusted Pecorino and pesto topping

    • Cheesepiggy on May 31, 2016

      Worked very well. The salmon cooked in 12 mins (don't like salmon 'just ' cooked) but very moist and lovely pesto topping.

  • Broad-bean salad with pancetta and sherry vinegar

    • Thermomixit on January 05, 2019

      Delicious! Take the skin off the broad beans.
