I have recently purchased the US edition of Nigellissima. While the recipes look great and I am looking forward to trying them, no weight measurements are given. I live in Canada and have access to standard measuring cups, however, I prefer to weigh my ingredients, especially flour. In order to insure success can you please let me know if Nigella uses the "spoon and sweep" method or the "scoop and sweep" method when measuring. Thanks!!! Much appreciated.

Hi Nigella Team, I often make the Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from 'Kitchen' and they are delicious. However no matter what I do, the cookies never turn out like Nigella's - the chocolate morsels always melt. I have tried refrigerating the dough, before baking, and baking the cookies from frozen. Perhaps Nigella uses a particular type of chocolate? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, I am a bit confused as to what size eggs i should use for the flourless chocolate cakes? The website ingredients state 'medium eggs' but the Nigella cookbooks I have generally say to use 'large eggs'. I am using UK sized eggs. Which is correct? Many thanks.

I'd like to make this month's cookalong recipe featurd on Nigella's website - the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Whenever I look in the supermarket I'm not sure which is the best cream cheese to buy for a baked cheesecake. Please can you recommend a good brand for the purpose? Many thanks, Keith

Why do most cheesecake recipes, such as NIgella's London Cheesecake, say to use cream cheese which is not sold in any of the main supermarkets? You can buy soft white cheese such as Philadelphia but this is not the same as cream cheese. When you search on-line there are a lot of people asking the same question. Where can I buy it? Thank you

Hello! How far ahead can I put the topping on Nigella's Nutella Cake, and can I make the topping beforehand and put it on before serving the cake? Thanks.

Hello, I'm so excited about making Nigella's Caramel Croissant Pudding (Gratin) for a dinner party. I will be doubling the recipe. I was just wondering if I can make this dessert the day before and re-heat it? Thanks, fingers crossed! All best, Diana Adams
