Hi, I saw one of Nigella's TV programmes, I don't recall which episode it was, where Nigella was in her pantry and she picked up a tin of gold wrapped chestnuts. What is the brand? I'd like to order them online. Also, there was another episode when she made a dessert from a sort of chestnut paste which she scooped out of a tin can into a martini glass. She then topped it with some whipped cream. Again, what is the name of that brand? It looked absolutely delicious! Thank you! Amanda

I saw Nigella do a receipe ages ago, where she cooked a tomato sauce and added rice which swelled the sauce up and gave it substance. Can you let me know which recipe this is? Many thanks Emily.

I have all of Nigella's cookbooks and some recipes call for fish sauce. My children and I are allergic to it and my husband doesn't like it. What can we substitute in place of fish sauce without sacrificing some of the authenticity of taste?
