Towards the end of the decade Delia commenced work on a new major project -- Delia's How to Cook , publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying TV series. The Vegetarian Collection and The Delia Collection followed. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking .
