Hi! I am from India. I am regular viewer of Nigella's cooking shows and I'm a big fan. I would like to know what I can use instead of cream of tartar in the Buttermilk Scones recipe? Unfortunately I don't think I can find this ingredient in my local store. Thanks!

I have made lemon meringue pies for years but I don't seem to be able to stop liquid beads appearing through the meringue once it has cooled. Do I need to make a drier meringue? It still tastes delicious but appearance is not so good!

I just wondered if there is a mistake in the Raspberry Bakewell Slice recipe on p300 of Kitchen? Should the base have the same amount of butter as plain flour, as pastry usually has half the amount of butter to flour. Thank you.

I would like to try making Nigella's Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I don't own a food processor - can I use a wooden spoon or an electric hand mixer?

I was wondering where I can buy the 30x20x5cm foil trays often mentioned in Kitchen? All the ones I have found are too wide and shallow. Thanks!

The recipe in Nigella's Christmas book (p166) does not indicate at what temperature the Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin should be cooked. Also, if using a smaller pumpkin should I cook it for less time? Thanks!

Hello Team Nigella! Do you think it would be possible to make a mint jelly in the same way that Chilli Jam is made? We have a glut of mint, and the chilli jam is a great success and very simple to make. Anne
