American Blue-cheese Dressing. Gratin of Eggs with Peppers and Chorizo. Begin by preparing all the ingredients.

Gratin of Eggs with Peppers and Chorizo

Remove the skin from the chorizo and slice it into ¼ inch (5 mm) rounds. The onion needs to be peeled, sliced in half and then each half sliced as thinly as possible so you end up with little half-moon shapes. Remove the stalk from the pepper and then halve it, scooping out the seeds. Slice it first into quarters and then each quarter into thin slices. Seared Salmon Fillets with Puy Lentil Salsa. First make the salsa: strip the leaves off the coriander stalks and reserve them for later.

Seared Salmon Fillets with Puy Lentil Salsa

Then tie the stalks together with a small piece of string, pop them into a medium saucepan along with the lentils and add 8 fl oz (225 ml) water but no salt at this stage. Bring everything up to a gentle simmer and simmer, covered, for 30-35 minutes or until the lentils are tender but still have some bite and retain their shape. The water will then have been absorbed. While the lentils are cooking, skin the tomatoes by pouring boiling water on to them. After 1 minute remove them and slip the skins off, then halve and squeeze out the seeds. Liver with Crisp-Fried Onions. Smoked Haddock with Spinach and Chive Butter Sauce. First you need to make the Hollandaise sauce: place the butter in a small saucepan and let it melt slowly. Meanwhile, blend the egg yolks and seasoning in a liquidiser or food processor.

You can also watch How to Separate Eggs, and how to make the Hollandaise (in the Separate Ways with Eggs lesson), in our Cookery School Videos on the right. Italian Stuffed Aubergines. First of all, wipe the aubergine and trim off the stalk end, then use the very sharpest knife you have to cut it lengthways into 8 thin slices about ¼ inch (5 mm) thick.

Italian Stuffed Aubergines

When you get to the bulbous sides these slices should be chopped into small pieces and kept aside for the filling. Now arrange the slices of aubergine in rows on the baking sheet, then brush each slice lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Pop them into the oven on a high shelf and let them pre-cook for 15 minutes, by which time they will have softened enough for you to roll them up easily. Next pour boiling water on the tomatoes and after 1 minute drain and slip the skins off. Char-grilled Tuna with Warm Coriander and Caper Vinaigrette. Spanish Chicken with Butter Beans, Chorizo and Tomatoes. First of all, begin by cooking the butter beans.

Spanish Chicken with Butter Beans, Chorizo and Tomatoes

Place the soaked and drained beans in a pan with the sprigs of thyme and 1 of the bay leaves and cover with water. Bring to simmering point and then cover with a lid and simmer the beans for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the beans are tender. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables. Begin by peeling the onion and carrots and finely chopping them. Next, take the tough green ends off the leek, then make a vertical split halfway down the centre and run it under cold water to rid it of any hidden grit. Roquefort and Leek Tart. Asian Steak Sandwiches. Stir-fried Rice with Egg and Spring Onions. First, warm the frying pan over a medium heat, next, add the rice, then add 8 fl oz (225 ml) boiling water along with the salt, stir once only, then cover with a lid.

Stir-fried Rice with Egg and Spring Onions

Turn the heat to its lowest setting and let the rice cook gently for exactly 15 minutes. Don't remove the lid and don't stir the rice during cooking, because this is what will break the grains and release their starch, which makes the rice sticky. After 15 minutes, tilt the pan to check that no liquid is left; if there is, pop it back on the heat for another minute. When there is no water left in the pan, take it off the heat, remove the lid and cover with a clean tea cloth for 5-10 minutes, then transfer the rice to a dish and fluff it lightly with a fork and allow it to become completely cold. When you are ready to stir-fry, heat half the oil in the frying pan and when it's really hot, quickly fry the onions for 3 minutes, moving them around in the pan until they are tinged brown. Winter Vegetable Pie with a Parmesan Crust. First of all place the butternut squash, celeriac, carrots and leeks in a steamer (the sweet potato is added later on).

Winter Vegetable Pie with a Parmesan Crust

Pour in some boiling water from the kettle, add the freshly grated nutmeg and some salt, then cover and steam the vegetables for 10 minutes. Now add the chunks of sweet potato and steam for another 10 minutes, or until the thickest parts of the root vegetables feel tender when tested with a skewer. Then tip all the vegetables into a large bowl and allow them to cool.

Meanwhile, make the sauce and the pastry. Smoked Salmon Pink 'Uns. Chicken with Sherry Vinegar and Tarragon Sauce. This is my adaptation of a classic French dish called poulet au vinaigre.

Chicken with Sherry Vinegar and Tarragon Sauce

It's very simple to make: the chicken is flavoured with tarragon leaves and simmered in a mixture of sherry vinegar and medium sherry without a lid, so that the liquid cooks down to a glossy, concentrated sauce. Serve with some well-chilled Fino sherry as an apéritif. Serves 4 This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Summer Collection and The Delia Collection: Chicken. Braised Lamb with Flageolet Beans.

Though neck fillet of lamb is quite an economical cut, it provides very sweet meat that responds perfectly to long, slow cooking and if you add pre-soaked dried green flageolets to cook alongside it these, too, absorb all the sweet flavours of the lamb, garlic and herbs, making this an extremely flavoursome and comforting winter warmer.

Braised Lamb with Flageolet Beans

Serves 4 This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Winter Collection You need to start this recipe by soaking the beans. Bubble and Squeak Rösti. First scrub the potatoes, then place them in a medium saucepan with a little salt.

Bubble and Squeak Rösti

Pour boiling water over to just cover them, then simmer gently with a lid on for 8 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then, while they are cooling, remove any stalks from the spring greens or cabbage and finely shred the leaves into ¼ inch (5 mm) slices. This is easy if you form them into a roll and then slice them. Drop the spring greens or cabbage into boiling water for 2 minutes only, then drain and dry well. When the potatoes have cooled, peel them, then, using the coarse side of a grater, grate them into a bowl. Mixed-leaf Caesar Salad. First make the croutons: place the cubes of bread in a bowl together with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 rounded tablespoon of Parmesan plus the crushed clove of garlic.

Mixed-leaf Caesar Salad

Stir and toss the bread round to get an even coating of cheese, oil and garlic, then spread the croutons out on the baking sheet and bake them on a high shelf in the oven for 10 minutes. Please put a kitchen timer on at this stage! I'm afraid I have burnt more croutons than I care to remember simply because the 10 minutes went so quickly! English Colonial Curry with Turkey. Greek Lamb Baked with Lemon and Garlic. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 2, 150°C. All you do is trim any excess fat from the lamb and cut it into 2.5cm thick rounds. Now tear off a sheet of foil large enough to wrap them in and place in a roasting tin. Arrange the pieces of meat in the centre of the foil. Next, slice 3 of the garlic cloves into slivers and, using the tip of a sharp knife, make incisions in the lamb and insert the pieces of garlic, distributing them as evenly as possible. Fish Cakes with Capers. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine everything except the seasoning, the cayenne pepper and the ingredients for the coating; then taste and season.

(If the fish and potatoes are not freshly cooked and hot, the butter will need to be melted before adding it to the mixture.) Now cool and chill the mixture for an hour or two to get it nice and firm, then when you’re ready to cook the fishcakes, lightly flour a working surface, turn the fish mixture out on to it and form it into a long roll about 6 cm in diameter. Cut the roll into 12 round fish cakes. Pat each cake into a neat shape, and dip each one first into beaten egg and then in the dry white breadcrumbs. Haggis Pie with Tatties and Neeps and Whisky Sauce. You will need to cook the haggis first so place them both in a fan (or conventional) steamer and steam for 1 hour exactly, then leave them to cool.

Meanwhile, place the piece of swede in a saucepan with some salt and enough boiling water to just cover, then simmer gently for about 15 minutes, or until they are tender but not mushy. Then drain and chop them with the pulse button in a food processor (or with a sharp knife), adding a knob of the butter until they are finely chopped, then season. Filled Focaccia with Ham and Melted Fontina. Pop the ingredients for the dough, including 5 fl oz (150 ml) water into the breadmaker in the order your manual instructs. Set it to the dough only setting (as the focaccia is going to be baked in the oven) and press the start button. Meanwhile, towards the end of the time, prepare the filling ingredients, separating the slices of ham and cutting the cheese into thin slices. When the dough is ready, remove it from the machine, turn it out on to a flat, lightly floured surface, divide it into two and then roll out one half to form a rough, rounded rectangle about 11 x 8 inches (28 x 20 cm).

Then place it on a baking tray (or pizza stone) and arrange the slices of ham on top, making sure they go right up to the edge. Smoked Haddock with Spinach and Chive Butter Sauce.
