I am dying to make your Chili Jam (Christmas, p241), however I cannot find jam sugar anywhere. Can I modify the recipe using powdered pectin? Please help.

Dear Nigella team, I'm in desperate need of help. I've taken on a huge responsibilty - to make your Devil's Food Cake (Kitchen, p253) for almost 60 people. But I have just realised that the recipe is for 10-12 people. How should I adapt the recipe? I have a tin which is 30cm in diameter, and was thinking of making 3 cakes but if I follow the original recipe will the cake will be too thin? Any ideas as to how I can adapt the recipe? Many thanks, Huma

Nigella talks about cooking two chickens - one for now and one for later. If you cook two birds of the same size/weight at the same time, do you need to lengthen the cooking time, or is it the same as for one bird? Also, if you're cooking something savoury like a chicken, would you cook biscuits /cake at the same time in the oven, or will the flavours mix? Thanks, Jane
