I know that resting dough/pastry is an integral part of the pie making process but how long can you rest dough for in the fridge prior to using it? The reason I am asking ask is that I am wondering whether I can make the dough in the morning and then complete the pie making process in the evening? Obviously there are often raw eggs involved so I imagine you can't leave it overnight! Thanks!

Hello! When Nigella calls for "chiles" in recipes, is there a way to know if she means cayenne (long red hot peppers) or jalepenos (shorter often green hot peppers) or another type of pepper. I am from the U.S. and we have several types of hot peppers available in most grocery stores. Thanks!

I have often made your Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake from Feast (p269) for family birthdays, and am wondering wether the recipe would translate to cupcakes? It's just such a wonderful rich moist mixture, and with that sour cream frosting, would make an amazing cupcake. Would it work to make a batch and then cook it in cupcake papers for a shorter amount of time? Thanks so much, Al.
