If I were to use liquid food colour instead of paste in the Red Velvet Cupcakes, how much would I require? Unfortunately the paste is not available where I live.
Do you need salt in the Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe? I made the cupcakes as per the recipe but am still wondering is salt should be added to the ingredient list? Thank you.

I really love making the Parmesan Shortbreads, and my guests can never get enough of them. However I was wondering whether I could tweak them a little. I would really like to add a touch of sun-dried tomato, but don't know how to go about it without messing up a great recipe. Do you have any suggestions? Many thanks.

In the Maple Chicken N Ribs recipe is the oven temperature 200c for a fan or conventional oven? Would it be 180c for a fan oven? Thanks!

Hi, I would like to make the Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake but I can´t get pure "sour cream" in Germany. What else can I use? Maybe "saure sahne"?

Is the coconut milk in Nigella's Keralan Fish Curry recipe sweetened or unsweetened? We can't wait to try it, but don't want to ruin it by using the wrong thing. Thank you.

I am an Australian living in Holland and have been searching for double cream to make Nigella's Creme Brulee recipe. Unfortunately, I just discovered the Dutch don't do double cream, and anything available here is imported from the UK, so it is very expensive! As a substitute, would single cream with perhaps a bit of cornflour work?
