When a recipe states cornflour, does it really mean cornstarch? Nigella's baked cheesecake recipe mentions cornflour or potato flour, but there is no such thing as potato flour where I live, only potato starch. So is the cornflour also starch? Kind regards, Joanna

I watched one of Nigella's TV programmes on TV and she made a tray bake which was salted peanuts mixed with Crunchie bars and chocolate. I'm looking for the recipe please. Thanks!
Help please! I saw Nigella making a lovely gooey chocolate pudding once -she added hot water into the pudding mix and it cooked in the oven. It was so fab looking but I lost the recipe and cannot find it now so can anyone help me?

We made the Cherry Cheesecake in Nigella Express and loved it. Now we are thinking of trying it with the new Chocolate Philly. What other bits of the recipe would need to be changed?

My blind daughter believes she heard Nigella describing a "grasshopper pie" which involved marshmallow, mint, biscuit base and , she thinks, cheesecake. I have been unable to find this recipe. Can you please help. Irvine Jones

Could you please give the old-fashioned imperial measurements (ounces, etc.) in your recipes?

I see in the Banoffee Cheesecake recipe, in Nigella's book Kitchen, that you need a roasting tin to cook the cheesecake. I don`t have one, so I was wondering if it is fine to use a ceramic or pyrex roaster instead? Thank you

Hi Nigella Team, I live in Italy where I can't find hallomi cheese. What kind of Italian cheese can I use instead of halloumi? Thanks Monica.

I have a relatively new pizza stone and my pizza bases keep on sticking to it in the oven. I've tried oil (which the stone just absorbs) and flour, but my bases still stick - although what I scrape off the stone is always very tasty, if a little ragged. Any tips?
