I live in Italy and saw a programme with Nigella that had a prawn and Iceberg lettuce salad with a wasabi and saki dressing. Unfortunately I didn't catch the ingredients and am unable to find it on the website. Could you please let me know where I can find a copy? Many thanks vix592

I'm not a fan of using raw eggs in dishes. Can I leave out the egg and perhaps use some full fat whipping cream as extra liquid?

Today I made Nigella's Yogurt Pot Cake. I just wanted to check two things. First there is no baking powder or baking soda in this cake, is this correct? Second, in the book it says to use cornstarch and on the website it is corn meal. They are not the same so please could you tell me which is correct?

I was wondering if Nigella's Vanilla Shortbread recipe is suitable for use with cookie cutters rather than baking in a pan? Thanks.

I made one of Nigella's pavlovas today, Sunday, and still have the yolks. I was thinking of making her Creme Brûlée for Tuesday but can I mix egg yolks and sugar and leave them in the fridge until Tuesday before making the custard mixture.Will the egg yolks keep?

When I make Tiramisu why does the mascapone sometimes turns liquid the minute I mix it with the yolks and sugar? It doesn't happen all the time which is very confusing. What am I doing wrong ? Please help, thank you Delphine
