Hi Team Nigella, I have a query on pork chops as I am finding them difficult to cook. Every time I cook them, they become very dry and tough. Which is the ideal cooking method for pork chops - pan or oven? And for how long?Many thanks. With regards, Vijay Mahendra

Hi! I know this sounds silly but I bought the exact same lime green pancake warmer that Nigella used in the Nigella Express series, however it didn't come with instructions so I'm wondering how it works. I hope you can outline how Nigella uses hers. Your help with this is much appreciated. Many thanks!

The hero in Nigella's recipe for Chickpeas With Rocket And Sherry seems to be the "cream sherry". However, if you do not have any at home what would make a good substitute? Or is this recipe just not the same without the cream sherry? Many Thanks!

I have made Nigella's Madiera Cake four times and the first two times it was absolutely perfect, however, the last two times it didn't rise or "crack" down the middle at all! I feel rather desperate about it all since I have followed the recipe and the instructions to the letter! Please help!
