I live im Chile, what it is cocoa powder? I think we don´t have it here. Kind regards.
Hi!. I would like to make creme brulee but I live in Chile and can't find demerara sugar. We have brown sugar, is this the same? Is there a difference between brown sugar and demerara sugar?. It is possible to switch them? Thanks! Tenita

I get confused when a recipe asks for chocolate in baking. For example 200g of dark chocolate when making a cake, do I use cooking chocolate or eating chocolate? Jenni

I just love Nigella's videos. I have tried quite a lot of her recipes and they were all delicious. So now I tried her Spruced-Up Vanilla Cake (Christmas, p199) and I don't know what happened , but when I mixed the ingredients in a food processor it wasn't creamy consistency. Instead it curdled on me. I put it in the oven anyway and it was delicious, but why did the mixture curdle - maybe I used too much butter? Thanks and always a fan.

In the Beetroot Chutney recipe on the website, what does 2C sugar and 2C wine vinegar equate to in g/ml?
What are "tin toms"? I have googled it and tried to search also on your website and can't get an answer anywhere. Lisakiss.

After watching your show I tried to fry some gnocchi. However they became soft and started to melt rather than being roasted. Please help!

The basic cheesecakes I make using gelatine tend to take on a "fake flavour". Is there any way I can make them take creamier?

Hi, I have baked the Roxanne's Millionaire's Shortbread in Domestic Goddess (p240). it seemed to have turned out very well, but when i tried to cut it the caramel was too soft and the chocolate too hard hence it was very messy. I have tasted it and it is delicious and would like to try it again. I followed the recipe exactly, the only thing i did do was make it in a foil tin.

I have alot of damson pulp left from making damson wine. I have had a go at turning it into jam, but am not sure how much sugar and water to use. The batch I tried has not really set and has lost a lot of flavour, or it may be just too sweet. Any help would be great. Many thanks
