Hi, Where can I buy the gianduja (chocolate hazelnut paste) used in Nigella's Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake recipe in the first episode of Nigellissima. (I live in UK, is there an online shop to get it from?) Thanks.

I enjoy creating pasta sauces, but mine always seem to be tomato based and I'd like to be more adventurous. Could you please recommend a pasta sauce I could try? Thank you!

The Nigellissima book has a recipe for Italian Sausages with Beans & Roasted Red Peppers. Do I really need to buy red vermouth? And where can I buy Italian sausages? Thanks!

Hi! A lot of recipes ask for sake, but only 2-3 tablespoons. I don't know what I would do with a full bottle, since I don't drink. can I store it in fridge? How long will it keep for?

Hello! I tried making Slow Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken (from Forever Summer) for dinner yesterday and usually all of Nigella's recipes are easy and turn out delicious. But for this one the chicken and sauce were terribly bitter. I used limes instead of lemons so was wondering if it may be because of the rind from the lime? Would that have made a difference? If not what could have turned my dinner into such a disaster? Also I have a convection oven, how does that affect temperature and time? Thanks, Ayeshah.
