Review by Debbie Mazo

 

Delia Online

With the availability of quality instruction from so many food sites on the Web, it's hard to make excuses when it comes to whipping up a decent meal. For kitchen geeks everywhere, Delia Online offers the ultimate guidance with the United Kingdom's largest food portal.

Featuring over 600 posted recipes, all with finished-product photos, Delia Online can definitely show you how it's done. At this community-based cooking site, home to British television host and cookbook writer Delia Smith, you can also chat, ask questions, and enter exclusive cooking competitions.

If you're looking to pick up some new cooking skills, the Cookery School at Delia Online is for students of all levels. with a picture library of almost 60 cooking techniques, you'll become a master in no time when you follow the step-by-step color photographs along with written directions. Instructions range from how to poach an egg (keep the water at a bare simmer throughout the cooking) to how to mash a potato (make sure to choose the right potato for a fluffy texture and a depth of potato flavor).

With easier access to quality ingredients at fresh food markets, anyone can take advantage of the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables each season has to offer. Delia Online lets you use the finest market produce with hints on ways to prepare the season's best. This fall, look for regional choices in apple crops and prepare an Apple and Blackberry Pie served with cream to mix with the juices. You can also browse the extensive database of recipes and search for the perfect meal based on the ingredients, season, or course. Try main course dishes like Spanish Braised Pork with Potatoes and Olives or traditional teatime selections like Open-faced Egg, Chive, and Spring Onion Sandwiches.

Become a member of Delia Online, and there's even more to explore. Register for free, and you can join Delia in her regular chat sessions, receive the site's newsletter, or use a personal cookbook, shopping list, and memo pad. All site visitors can browse the pages of Delia's Diary for an inside look at the life of a cookbook author. with all these handy features, visiting Delia Online is the next best thing to having a professional cook in your own kitchen.
