Hello Nigella Team, can you please tell me where Nigella got the red platter which she uses for her Christmas gingerbread? Also, in her Nigellissima series she uses a black wok to cook squid with marjoram. Where did she get this because its exactly what I am after but can't find anywhere! Many thanks, Tara

I made the Vanilla Shortbread but managed only to get 18 small squares from the mixture. Does the Swiss roll tin have standard dimensions? My Swiss roll tin may be smaller as I thought the shortbread was a tad too thick, but it was still very tasty.

I would like to try the Smoked Cod With Canellini Beans but I can't find smoked cod and have asked at the fish counter of our local specialty shop. Any suggestions for a substitute? The only cod we have available is salted (dried) or fresh. Thanks!

Hi! I'd love to try Nigella's Slow Roasted Garlic And Lemon Chicken for guests. It would be great if I could put in oven, go out and leave for about 5 hours to be cooked on return. Is this doable?
