Hi! I am interested in making the Holiday Hotcake recipe. My family has got a dairy allergic and can not eat butter, cream, milk. Could you please tell me the amounts I need to make it dairy free or are they the same? Many thanks.

I would like to cook the Slow-Roasted Aromatic Shoulder Of Pork from Nigella Bites. My joint is 3.1kg and I noticed in another comment that you suggested if the shoulder was this size the cooking time would need to be revised down from 24hrs. Could you please advise on the cooking time for this size of shoulder joint. Many thanks.

Hello Nigella's team. Firstly, I absolutely adore the online recipes; great for all occasions from dinner parties to intimate meals for two. I recently had a bit of a dilemma. We have taken to art of apiculture and have been enjoying our own honey produce in a number of Nigella's recipes; we find the dishes are so much more fulfilling using our own stock of honey. The problem is our honey is cloudy! Can we use it in a recipe where specifically states to use "clear" honey. Should we invest in a filter to execute the dish or try using our homely cloudy honey? Thanks so much for your help.

Hi there, I am a vegetarian, but still enjoy the libations of gin and tonic, and I was wondering if I could use agar agar powder in substitute for the gelatine? If so do you have any suggestions for the quantity?
I want to make the Gin & Tonic Jelly, but I have a vegetarian who would be eating this. What substitute would you recommend for the gelatin and in what quantity? Mr Superspiceboy.
