I'm interested in making the divine-sounding Liquorice Pudding but it's difficult to find those black liquorice pellets and they're a little expensive online. I was wondering if I can use any other form of black liquorice - like boot laces cut up into small pieces - will this be the same?

I have a batch of chutney that hasn't thickened. I don't really want to reduce it down as that will reduce the fruit pieces to puree. What can you suggest - cornflour or an addition of more pears with little liquid?

Hi Team Nigella, I am taking part in a cake baking competition this Christmas. I haven't baked since I was at school (nearly 25 years ago!) let alone enter competitions! I wondered if you have a simple recipe that was easy to follow. It has to be a chocolate cake and the more spectacular the better! Please help! Kind regards Elaine.

Whenever I bake Nigella's Chocolate Chip Cookies they always spread out and eventually join together by the end of cooking. It also happens with other cookies, even ones roll and I cut out in shapes. What am I doing wrong?

I have made the Breakfast Bars quite a few times and up to now have used unsalted sunflower and pepita (pumpkin) seeds but was wondering as the recipe specified unsalted peanuts does that mean the other ingredients should be salted?
