I am throwing a Christmas holiday party soon and I am planning on making Nigella's Potato Cakes with Smoked Salmon from Nigella Express (p198). How long in advance can I griddle the potato pancakes? Thank you.

Hi there, I would love to try Nigella's Ultimate Christmas Pudding (Christmas p138), but unfortunately I can't eat suet. Is it possible to substitute butter, vegetable shortening or perhaps something else for those of us of the vegetarian persuasion?

In the recipe for a Boozy Christmas cake, one of the ingredients calls for preserved root ginger balls. What exactly is this? Here in the US we have candied ginger. Is this is acceptable as an alternative and if so what would the quantity be? Thanks, Deborah
