Nigella talks about cooking two chickens - one for now and one for later. If you cook two birds of the same size/weight at the same time, do you need to lengthen the cooking time, or is it the same as for one bird? Also, if you're cooking something savoury like a chicken, would you cook biscuits /cake at the same time in the oven, or will the flavours mix? Thanks, Jane

The recipe Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake (Feast, p269) requires sour cream in both the cake and icing. I want to bake this cake a day in advance for my twins birthday. Can this be done or will the cream/icing/cake spoil? What is the shelf life of this cake?

Hi, I've recently purchased some truffle oil but it's hard to find recipes for it. Do you have a few quick/easy recipes, plus some to use a dinner party, that would be great. Thanks

Could you tell me the measurement in millilitres (mls) for juice for the Passion Fruit Curd recipe in Domestic Goddess (p344). You say 11 passion fruit, but I use passionfruit nectar, so need to measure it. Thanks, Sangoy.
