A group of us are planning a mid-winter Christmas feast in New Zealand during July. My contribution will be cooking the turkey using Nigella's Spiced and Superjuicy Roast Turkey recipe however I'm having a lot of trouble sourcing White Mustard Seeds (in both New Zealand and Australia). I have found Yellow Mustard Seeds but can not find anywhere that confirms if they are the same or interchangeable. Please advise if yellow mustard seeds are the same as white ones or at least can be used as an alternative?

I am making the Slow-Roasted Aromatic Shoulder of Pork from the Nigella Bites book (p211). Should I get the joint with or without the bone in it?

I have made Nigella's Chocolate Guinness Cake (from Feast, p286) for the first time after trying a friend's heavenly offering only to find, after following the recipe to the letter, that my effort turned out very heavy and stodgy at the bottom. Any clues as to what went wrong? It still tasted yummy though and the topping is a pudding in it's own right! Many thanks.
