Product description

This is a celebration of summer and all its glorious ingredients - Delia has distilled the essence of summer into a book that brings the sun into the kitchen whatever the weather. From early May to September a dazzling progression of summer produce brings with it a freshness, a sense of excitement and anticipation of what is new. Delia's Summer Collection takes that as its inspiration, introducing us to the more unusual ingredients that are growing in popularity, as well as familiar ingredients that are transformed by the subtle influence of Californian, Italian, Greek and Oriental flavours and ideas. Here new techniques for grilling and roasting vegetables are explained; here are stunning home-made ice creams, barbecues for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike, a feast of fresh fruits, as well as a section on preserves to recapture some of the flavours of summer in the dark days of winter. All Delia's recipes are tested again and again to make them totally accessible to everyone who enjoys cooking and eating. The Summer Collection also includes information on equipment, ingredients and menus for entertaining.

Author information

Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery writer, whose books have sold over 21 million copies worldwide. Delia's first job as a cookery writer was for the Daily Mirror in 1969 - numerous phenomenal best sellers and television series followed including Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course in 1978 and Delia's Christmas, Summer & Winter Collections in the 1990s. Towards the end of the decade Delia commenced work on a new major project - Delia's How to Cook, publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying TV series. The Vegetarian Collection and The Delia Collection followed. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time 'Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking'. Delia is married to the writer and editor, Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.

Review quote

"Delia is a modern-day Mrs Beeton, which I mean as a big compliment. You'll find her books in most households and they'll be the most used and trusted in the collection." -- Theo Randall Delicious Magazine "Delia's writing is to be reckoned with. Her approach helps you get it right every time. Long live Delia!" -- Gizzi Erskine. Delicious Magazine "Considered by many to be Britain's answer to Martha Stewart, Smith, with her down-to-earth style, is as refreshing as the food presented here" Booklist
