Hi Nigella and team! I can't help but wonder what you mean by bouquet garni in terms of Nigella's turkey brine recipe (Feast, p10). It seems that the recipe asks for everything in a bouquet garni already, which is why I wonder why you include it? Also, I wish you would promote your sweet potato casserole (Feast, p29) more often as its fantastic and a great addition to both the Thanksgiving and Christmas table!

Dear Nigella, I would love to serve your Boozy British Trifle (Christmas, p42) as the centerpiece of my Christmas dessert table this year, but a number of my guests are allergic to nuts. Thus the lovely pistachio garnish is off-limits. Could you suggest a similarly glorious, gorgeous, nut-free alternative? Many thanks, Jennifer M.

Can I feed my Christmas cake with fresh orange juice instead of alcohol? Please could you also advise me when can I ice my cake (using fondant icicng) as I'm not sure if the icing will go hard if I ice it now? Thank you! .
