Hi there I buy most of my books online, as I'm in Australia (originally from UK), and book variety is limited and pricey. Recipe books here, in particular, have US measurements (cups, etc), which I can't abide as it's so inaccurate. So, I prefer UK recipe books. I've just bought Nigella Christmas from The Book Depository in the UK because it offers free worldwide delivery, unlike Amazon. However, the book that has arrived is clearly for the US market with ingredients (no idea what Graham's crackers are), measurements, etc all meant to the USA. Very annoying. To return the book will cost as much in postage as the cost of the book. So, I have resigned myself to giving it to a friend and reordering a UK one. The problem with any online ordering is that you can't browse through the book, and I would have seen straight away that it's an American book, can you give me the ISBN number? Thanks Abigail Pope Perth, Western Australia PS:
English based in Australia, I bought Kitchen, and got the American version! I know what many of the ingredients translate to, but not all the measurements - can you tell me please, what is a pint of tomatoes, a stick of butter, turbinado sugar? Also, where could I get a dessert shell pan? Thanks jib.225

The Tiramisu recipe from "Kitchen" calls for instant expresso powder as do quite a few other recipes I have come across, however, I cannot seem to find this in any of the supermarkets or even online at Italian delis - please could you advise a source for this product if possible? Thanks Jon Birch
