In a recent conversation about food and cooking, one of my younger friends told me she didn’t know who Delia Smith was! I was amazed by this since Delia is pretty much the reason I’m such a good cook now. Thanks to her excellent recipes and detailed instructions, I was able to try new and different recipes with almost 100% success rate. Delia was really my first proper cookery teacher and engendered a love of traditional English cooking which endures today.
For the uninitiated, here are a couple clips of her making chocolate truffles – the recipe is on her website: www.deliaonline.com
