Hello Delicious team, I am having trouble finding recipes online that I know are in the mag. e.g. Just searched 'for 'Spiced Parsnip and Apple Soup' online but it's not found. This recipe was one of Debbie's in the Xmas mag. I pass the mag to a friend so want to add my favourite recipes to my online cookbook. Can you improve the recipe search engine please or tell me why my search doesn't work? Thanks, regards Sandra

Hi I've been trying to locate a recipe from the July 2010 issue, which annoyingly I seem to have mislaid. Please can anyone help? It was for "Pork scratchings with zingy guacamole" by Thomasina Miers, in a sort of World Cup themed article called "Food for boys (and girls)". Yours hopefully Gavelar

I made the Blueberry and lemon squares - June 2013 issue - and for the icing the recipe said 6-8 tbsp lemon juice to 200g icing sugar.This did not work as an icing as it was far too runny and I wasted the juice of three lemons in the process. Were the measurements wrong? The cake it's self was delicious. Kathy Ward

Hi, My husband and I have just come back from staying at the Mercure hotel in Exeter on winning a Wine And Dine Experience through your magazine at the end of last year. What a wonderful time we had. We had a swim before dinner and could barely get up from the table after our five course meal with wine. The room was lovely and after a good night's sleep we enjoyed a full breakfast the next morning. The beauty of it all was - it was all free. The hotel didn't skimp on anything and the service was excellent. Luckily we have family living near by so we spent a further 2 nights staying with them. Thank you so much for this wonderful prize.

Would it be possible for delicious to do a tasting of dried porcini mushrooms to tell us which ones have the best flavour, cost etc. We use them regularly in our cooking - we prefer the sainsburys one to the Waitrose ones (they are also a lot cheaper).

@Rosmassey: Hi there, just read your comment about not wanting to print out recipies and I have the same feeling about printing (I too am a subscriber). A partial solution is to create a folder on your computer called recipies and then print the recipe as a PDF file (normally a print to file option) and save them in this folder; this way you should never again misplace a favorite recipe and then drive yourself mad looking for it! If you have a laptop you can simply put the recipe up on the screen and follow it from there. Hope this helps! @webeditor: Could you not start to add a line of text to the bottom of the recipe which sites which issue and page it is from? Also. if the recipe came from an issue of the magazine, I would have thought that there would be a link between the recipe and magazine, such as a meta-tag, which you could display on the screen showing the issue and page number of the magazine? Assuming that the information is embeded in the recipe page itself.

I have been trying to search for ideas but I literally have to search through each catogory to see what recipies there are. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

Made a fantastic recipe on page 23 of the November issue which was the "one pan roast herby fish". Very tasty and I will make again, the only issue was you did not put the oven temperature in the recipe or remind people to pre heat the oven. I cooked it on 200 deg which turned out right.

The Sticky Apple and Gingerbread Pecan Loaf cake in the October edition , page 106-7 , needs considerably more cooking time that stated in the magazine. The recipe states 50 mins at Gas 4 , I had it in the oven at that temperature for 1 1/2 hours before it was done. I had wieghed the ingredients carefully , but noticed the mixture was extremely sloppy. That is the second cake that has not gone according to the recipe , the last one was the Banana and Chocolate bread in Oct 2010 which had the wrong size cake tin in the recipe.Still not got a reply to that despite being promised one by the team at Delicious. I do not have alot of faith in the recipes and now always worry when I attempt to make something.I also wonder if anyone from the team actually look at this website as nothing seems to come of the comments posted here.

Still waiting for your reply to my comment last year about the banana and chocolate bread recipe which had the wrong size tin quoted in the recipe , Oct 2010 issue , you said you would reply once the Christmas issue was out of the way.

I have of course by now figured out what size tin to make it in , but it would be nice to have a reply when promised one.

Hi I have been a subsciber for 2 years now to your magazine. With my wife we run a ski chalet in the French Alps - 10 years now! We specialise in family skiing - taking children from new borns to teenagers. Every year come the end of November I start to prepare my weeks menu for the coming season. I have found Delicious incredibly useful - either following the recipes exactly or using them as inspiration. By the end of the season even the ones I followed exactly have evolved as products come in or out of season and I find different ways of doing them; quicker, cheaper, better quantities for large groups, etc I particularly like your vegetarian recipes (we seem to be getting more and more - and many vegetarian cook books are very dull). Also your ideas of cooking for children have helped - they can be fussy but it is possible to cook them good, healthy food! This year, as guests often ask for recipes I re-wrote all the receipes from this years menu and in return for a d

All, I love the magazine and have been using recipes from it for many years now. There is one recipe in particular that I am looking for and cannot find.

Re:panettone: 1. The main problem seems to be lack of rise. With the unusually cold weather it sounds as though their dough isn't warm enough to activate the yeast, multiply and rise. The warming oven of an aga, a warm airing cupboard, or a low oven is required to get rise when it's this cold. It doesn't matter how long dough is left; if it is not warm enough it won't rise. 2. Secondly, how old is your yeast? You need fresh yeast since it becomes less active over time. Frozen yeast will have lost some of its kick and we did not test the recipe using dried, only fresh. 3. Thirdly, are you kneading correctly? The dough needs to be worked vigorously and warmed up until it's silky smooth. All our recipes are tested thoroughly in our test kitchen and again when we photograph them and this worked fabulously (I can vouch for this as I ate a good few slices of it - web ed.). Bread is notoriously tricky - cooks need to be reasonably experienced to attempt it.

I discovered delicious. magazine in my favourite cafe in Keswick 2 years ago and have subscribed ever since. I have followed many of your recipies and others have inspired me to be creative with my own 'store cupboard' favourites. I want to thank you for helping in making my new year meal for family so successful. I used the mustard dressing from a 1 o'clock rocks salad (april 2010 I think) to accompany starters, tips for the perfect roast potato, and for desert; the crowning glory... your showstopper ginger cake recipe. Perfect because I could bake it in advance and WoW! Despite everyone being full already, we all found room for this. Delicious. There is none left. Will be making this again and have already passed on the recipe and it's source.

My panettone is not rising. Can I add more yeast? The only yeast I could find was frozen fresh, so would that be the problem? If it doesn't rise, any tips as to what to do with the dough. I would hate it to go to waste. Thanks.

Hi There, Not sure if this is the place to ask, but with the winter weather creeping in, tax going up and electricity soaring its time to get frugal. I purchased a pressure cooker as I am planning on cooking in bulk and saving money ( I have an elecctric stove ) and I think is would be great to do a feature on pressure cooking recipes. There are slow cooking recieps, oven recipes and I have googled high and low for an up to date modern pressure cooking recipe book. Can't find any, they are all from 1990's, no offense but the pressure cookers then are ancient compared to the new jazzy ones now. so Delicious please help me on my quest of finding an amazing pressure cooking book with modern recipes of hopefully you can do a peice in an upcomming issue to banish the fear of of pressure cooking! I am hopeing this could be a letter to the editor section as I am sure there are many ladies with this monster in their kitchen and want to put it to good use! kind regrads, Kelly

In this month's magazine you advertised La Mare black butter. Why don't you give the man who makes it all a call as I know himm and he didn;t know you had printed the product. He also makes hand made chocoltaes and these are a real treat! Contact him at la mare and tell him Christine gave you the insight. He would be worth a proper article - not the others who manage the organisation , just him as he makes everything including Jersey fudge and 1 meter high easter eggs.

We have lots of vegetarian recipes on the website that don't contain goat's cheese. Unfortunately, it's not possible to do a search minus an ingredient on the site but if you pick 'mains' and 'vegetarian' in the refine search boxes you will find plenty of recipes to suit. Alternatively, try substituting goat's cheese for a cheese of your liking.

We all dislike it intensely and nearly all vegetarian recipes at the moment which contain cheese, use goat's cheese. Please consider all the other wonderful cheeses when inventing new recipes.

Dear suzhageman, the dessert you're referring to must be Rick Stein's easy apple tart, which was on the October issue. Unfortunately, it's a book extract so we don't have the rights to put it online after the month of publication, but you can order a back issue from delicious@servicehelpline.co.uk. Sorry about that. Debra, web editor

Dear KirstyLooli, I haven't got the Gypsy tart recipe which you used to hand to compare to mine but I thought I would share mine as it took me a long time to work out what I was doing wrong! 1 x 400g tin evaporated milk. Keep in the fridge for a day before using to ensure it is cold. 400g muscovado sugar - make sure it is muscovado sugar and not just dark brown sugar as this won't work. This will fill two 8 inch cooked sweet tart cases. Whisk the sugar and evaporated milk together for 10 minutes until thick and creamy. Pour into tart cases and bake at 190oc / gas mark 5 for about 12 minutes. I always make two and freeze one otherwise I waste half the milk as I leave it in the fridge with good intentions to do something with it! The tart freezes fine but if you cover the top with anything it will stick and pull the top off. I put mine into tupperware.

Dear Camergirl, we rarely use this method, it's a space saving device so we can fit in as many lovely recipes as possible. Your comment has been noted by our editorial team and we will endeavour to stick to the more traditional format where ever possible.

Hi there, I'm disappointed to say that out of the two recipes I've tried from the September issue neither have worked successfully! I'm by no means a novice cook, but have been beaten by the deep filled apple, soured cream and nutmeg pie, and the gypsy tart with maldon sea salt. The former ended up as a sponge cake (i guess from the s/r flour?!) and the gypsy tart after following the recipe to the letter ended up becoming a tasty pastry with sloppy toffee sauce. They were edible, but clearly not as expected which is a shame as they looked Delicious! Where am I going wrong? Has anyone else had the same problems?

I'd like to concurr with Jane Wrightson's comment ref the Banana bread in the Oct issue. I made the same recipe, having checked the volume of my tin before I started. The mix came right to the top, but I threw caution to the wind as your recipes have always been reliable before and it went in the oven anyway. I ended up with a large wave of cake flowing over the tin and a lump on the baking tray next to the tin! Luckily, I was only cooking for the family and we laughed at my 'rip curl' cake, but please advise what size tin should be used for the recipe - it's tasty and I'd like to make it again. PS: Moroccan Paella - gorgeous!

In the Oct issue the recipe for Banana and Chocolate bread specifies a 1.2 litre loaf tin , thie is too small for the amount of mixture and nearly caused a disaster in the kitchen today.I had to empty it all out in to a bigger tin , wasting some of the mixture along the way , it has turned out well I'm glad to say , but it was not the first time that I have found the containers to be too small for the recipes. I do love the Magazine and have had some great successes with other recipes but it is maddening when you've spent alot on the ingredients to have it go wrong just because you are following the recipe. The chocolate brownies also didnot come out as dark as the photo you used for the recipe although I used all the specified ingredients and would have been very small if I had cut them into 12 , 9 would have been better.

Picked up a copy after a short break from reading it and brilliant edition (Aug 2010). Only thing I did not like was the article on 20 midweek suppers. Please put the ingredients in a list at the beginning as I found I missed something and did not have it to hand when trying 2 of the recipes. Much easier to check what is needed when in a list and then go and buy if I do not have. Otherwise good magazine and great content. Waiting for the next edition.

I have emailed before about your gluten free recipe page. I suggested maybe you could mark every recipe in your magazine if it is gluten free as there are usually quite a few. I am currently reading your July issue. The gluten free recipe is one that could have been anywhere in your magazine but I had to comment as the recipe before this is for a quinoa tabouleh which I think would have been a better recipe for your gluten free feature?

Dear Delicious I love the magazine & have raved about it so much a friend has kindly bought a subscription for me. September's issue is full of lovely things but my one huge frustration has been the '20 Simple Suppers' section. You have incorporated the ingredients into the preperation & method for each recipe. To not list the ingredients sepeartely & clearly as you usually do, has meant quite a lot of extra time searching through each one to ensure that I have included all that I need. It has also made shopping for several of the recipes more time consuming for the same reason. I am sure I am not alone in hoping that you will return to your usual organized format!

Dear Delicious, I like your recipes, but am troubled by the number of recipes that require the use of aluminium foil (e.g. Roasting Gammon). Aluminium is one of the really significant greenhouse gas contributors. As a responsible journal, I would really like to see you make an effort to minimise the global warming effects of us, your readers, by eliminating needless use of things like Aluminium foil.

This is a Jamie recipe so we can only make suggestions, as he's the author. But if your husband doesn't like carrot, instead of the carrot and orange salad try a Meshwiya salad (do a search on the site) - it contains tomatoes but they've been blanched. Alternatively, serve it with a couscous side dish which is in keeping with the Moroccan theme. Regards, delicious.

Hi, Wondering if you could help. I'm making a surprise anniversary dinner for my husband & wanted to make Jamie Olivers Moroccan shoulder of lamb that was published in this months Delicious. Unfortunately, my husband does not like carrot, which was the veg suggested with the dish and I wanted to know what else you would put with it? (He also doesn't eat cabbage, spinach or raw tomato!!) Thanks so Much!

Here at delicious we know that things such as calories and fat content are very important and we do try where ever possible to have a balance of naughtier, indulgent recipes and ones that are less so. The high levels of fat in this issue are a coincidence due to the nature of some of the dishes, particularly those written by chefs. A lot of the recipes are in fact quite low in terms of calories but then do have higher fat perhaps from things such as good fats. We would never plan to have a whole issue full of over fatty recipes so we will definitely watch this in the future. It is perhaps worth noting where the fats are perhaps coming from good sources such as oily fish and where they are from cheese or butter and if you are worried you could always reduce the latter without effecting the recipes too much as often it is things such as cream or cheese stirred in at the end of a dish so you could use less to suit your purposes. Regards, the food team.

I have subscribed to Delicious for years now and it is one of the best cookery magazines but I was horrified to see the recipes in the August magazine and to see the incredibly unhealthy fat content in the majority of them. For most of them they were almost, if not totally in excess of the recommended fat content for a whole day. Is this anything to do with the new editor? The recipes were ok, and occasionally a high fat recipe does no harm but given the serious obesity problem in this country some healthy recipes wouldn't go amiss. I don't want to get fat and for me, this edition was a waste of money.

Help! I have promised guests this weekend Blackened five-spice duck with mini roast potatoes (Angela Boggiano & Kate Belcher). I have had a practice and served to my family. The duck was excellent. However the whole dish was too dry; it needed a sauce. It was like having an excellent roast beef lunch without gravey. Any suggestions for a sauce to go with the five-spice theme? Is there anything clever I could try with the gibblets that comes with the duck? Thanks in advance Sx

Cracking Crackling! I was intrigued to read a pork recipe towards the back of your April 2010 issue which said to get crackling you had to get the pork joint, put it on a trivet in the sink and pour a whole kettle of boiling water over it. Then pat it dry, oil/herb it, refridgerate it overnight and when you cook it the next day you get brilliant crackling. It absolutely works and I now do this for all my pork joints, I never got any crackling with supermarket pork but now its guaranteed (even cooking the joint at 180 degrees as I did today!) BRILLIANT! Kind regards Sarah Walsh

Dear Delicious Magazine, can I say how fantastic Nigella's Honey Chocolate Cake in April's magazine is. I come from a family of fantastic Austrian cake makers and this cake came the closest to my dear late mother's Chocolate Torte than anything else I've tasted. I believe that a good chocolate cake should coat your teeth and fingers like nothing else. I have to say that four of us (including a 9 year old) polished off the cake in one day!!! Kind regards Barbara Dartnall

Hello, I am currently reading the May edition of Delicious and as a great lover of good balsamic vinegar found the article on it very informative. I have discovered an extremely delicious one produced by Gillys foods (www.gillysfoods.com) which I hope you will try as it is to me the best that I have ever tasted plus you can order it on line. I am not one for writing comments but felt I had to on this occasion. Kind regards Anita Neale

The eggs were decorated by the stylist Polly Webb-Wilson on the shoot but the good news is that you can make them yourself easily. It's a process known as decoupage; simply cut our photos or drawings of flowers from gardening magazines and stick them on boiled eggs.

Hi Just wanted to thank you for the 'Night on the Tiles' article in the November issue which i saved for my New Year's Eve dinner party for six. We had a great evening and the scrabble between each course helped to conserve our appetites, spread the meal out til midnight and gave the evening a very competitive spirit!! Brilliant - don't know what I would do without my Delicious Magazine for inspiration. Happy New Year to you all.

Hi, I have made the orange cranberry torte, december issue 2008. It was really great, but to my own taste a bit too fat. The recipe says 400 ml sunflower oil, I think it is a great amount, can I reduce it without spoiling the recipe? Best Regards and thank you for a lot of good recipes and inspiration, Marianne, Denmark

Readers of last month's "Junior Cooks" may be interested to learn that the Church has an even greater responsibility than the article implies for the name "Stir Up Sunday". The Church of England has a special prayer for each Sunday of the year, and this prayer is called the Collect. For the Sunday before Advent the Collect is "Stir up we beseech Thee O Lord the wills of Thy faithful people that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may by Thee be plenteously rewarded." Sounds a bit like "Come on kids! If you bring me the fruit and give a good stir you'll get a good pud."!

The Halloween article in the Nov 09 issue is from our sister publication, delicious. Australia. The feature was shot in Australia, not the UK, so we're not able to find out where the props were bought.

D is for Delicious delectable delightful dramatic and any amount of home-made words like deluscious. Never blench at "diet" even though it shares with the famously legalistic Diet such as the one at Worms. Diets don't do it, but self esteem does, so get cooking! Delicious of course...
