I would like to fill mini sweet tartlets with cream and fruit. I experimented with natural yogurt and the pastry cases were soggy in a couple of hours. I want to make and fill with creme patissiere. Will the same thing happen if I assemble them before a party? If so how do they sell them ready assembled in supermarkets?! Some recipes for creme patissiere use flour AND cornflour. Nigella in Domestic Goddess only uses flour and she uses double cream and milk. Some recipes only use milk. Please help with my confusion! Thank you . Deane-Mae

I was reading that Prince William has requested a chocolate biscuit cake to be served at his wedding reception. I looked up the recipe and found one on-line. It seems to be a cake with store-bought rich tea biscuits baked into it. I was wondering if you had recipe for this cake? And if you had a recipe for these tea biscuits? They are not available around where I live. (USA/SC) Love your show, you have a wonderful television presence. Thank you, Christina Harper

Hi there, I need some help! I've been volunteered to cook a sunday lunch for 15 people and I don't know where to start. I do want to do a traditional roast, but can't think of a joint of meat big enough, apart from perhaps a large shoulder of pork? Or 2 legs of lamb? I will have access to a large gas range and double oven, so there should be plenty of space. Am also debating whether to do Nigella's ham in cherry coke as well, to increase the amount of food. In terms of side dishes I was thinking of potato dauphinoise, kale and a big green salad. Any thoughts or tips more than welcome! Thanks.
