Hi. I have a query about the topping on Nigella's Creme Brulee. When the recipe says to melt the sugar, is it supposed to be a hard toffee? I first used the grill and the topping was still soft and then I bought a blow torch and it set, but not toffee. I used both castor and demerara sugar. When I had it in a restaurant, it was hard toffee. Thanks.

Hi Team Nigella, I was wondering how to tell whether to use original olive oil or extra virgin olive oil in cooking? I always use normal olive oil - I have both, however the question goes through my mind "Should I use extra virgin?" Thanks! Dan
