My take on Delia Smith's moussaka

My take on Delia Smith's moussaka

This is from my original Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course book which I've had for many years. Delia's addition of eggs to the cooled bechamel sauce makes a lovely golden puffy topping

Delia's lemon herb pasta

Delia's lemon herb pasta

This is quite loosely based on this Delia Smith recipe. I'm sorry but if anyone has told you that they have the ultimate summery pasta for you
Delia’s potato salad with vinaigrette

Delia’s potato salad with vinaigrette

Adapted from Delia Smith’s recipe. This simple, yet quite sophisticated potato salad is one of Delia’s creations, and as I trust her ability I didn’t actually test this recipe before I made it for a dinner party
