Delia Smith - Cookery, Food, Recipes
Delia Smith is the UK's most successful cookery writer and TV show presenter. She has sold over 21 million books and she is seen as the modern standard for sensible, down to earth, no nonsense cooking. None of this Heston Blumenthal $10,000 equipment to use frozen nitrogen and half a nuclear reactor in your kitchen.
Delia does a huge range of dishes with normal kitchen equipment aimed at ordinary people trying to produce good food and food for special events in normal kitchens.
She has been phenomenally successful and is now wealthy enough to have become a majority shareholder in Norwich City her local soccer team.
She got into some trouble with some of her more purist fans when she produced a cheat at cooking book using pre-prepared ingredients, but hey, not everybody wants top do everything from scratch all the time.
Her website www.deliaonline.com is good, nice and clear and goes from basic procedures for the new cook to advanced techniques for the more adventurous. A good range of fully tested recipes, British, European and World. I ignore the adverts for equipment and supplies.
One of my bookmarked food sites her recipes are usually pretty foolproof (i.e. suitable for me!)
FYI Delia Smith baked the cake depicted on the cover of the Rolling Stones album Let It Bleed.
