About delicious. Magazine

In the October issue of delicious. we talk to cookery icon Delia Smith about her 50 years of food writing. Autumn’s chills bring cravings for hearty food like mac ‘n’ cheese (four of them!) and slow-cooked casseroles. We cook seasonally with mushrooms, pumpkin and quinces – and don’t miss our luscious chocolate fudge pecan pie, spectacular Halloween cake and more. Plus, there’s an extra 16-page mini-mag of the best biscuit recipes from iced party rings to chocolate Viennese swirls. As Delia would say “Let’s be ‘aving you!”
