Delica squashes are best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, steaming, baking, and frying. The tender, sweet flesh can be incorporated into both sweet and savory dishes, and when roasted, the flesh develops a caramelized exterior.

Delica squashes can be cubed and tossed into stews, soups, and curries, fried into tempura, stirred into gratins and casseroles, sliced into wedges and baked as a French fry, mixed into risotto, or minced and stuffed into pasta. The squashes can also be roasted and served in grain bowls, baked into pies, cakes, and other pastries, or blended into mousses, creams, and jams. In addition to the flesh, the seeds can be cleaned, salted, and roasted as a crunchy snack or salad topping.

Delica squashes pair well with herbs such as rosemary, sage, and thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, cheeses such as brie, parmesan, ricotta, and gorgonzola, raisins, fish such as salted cod or smoked salmon, quinoa, and polenta.

The fresh squash will keep up to five months when stored whole and uncut in a cool, dry, and dark place.
