Hi, just want to say Kitchen is my favourite of Nigella's books all the tips on leftovers, freeze and make ahead. Its Perfect! Anyway I find myself making things in advance and freezing much more for thoose days when I want good food but too tired to make it. What I would like to know is how sucessfully can you freeze curry? Most that I make have cream or coconut cream in the sauce. That way a meal is as easy as defrosting the curry and a fresh pot of rice. Many Thanks

On one of Nigella's Christmas Cooking shows she made a Sponge Cake in a round Tin that when turned out, the cake was in the shape of 5 or 6 Christmas Trees. Could you please advise where I can purchase this tin? Thanks

Nigella bakes a vanilla sponge in a cake tin which looks liks a forest of pine trees when the cake is turned out. She then sifted icing sugar over the top. It looked like snow. So pretty. Where can I get such a tin? Sammyson

Dear Team Nigella, I'm going on a weekend trip to a vacation cottage that has a full kitchen, but as I understand it, no pots/pans/cups/knives/etc - a totally unfurnished kitchen! Unfortunately there's no outdoor grill either as it's in a snowy winter destination. There's 6 of us total going, and I'm going to make a dinner for everyone but I'm at a loss of what kind of recipes should be attempted with very little equipment - I'm going to have to travel light. I will be stopping at their local market so I should be able to pick up disposable plates, utensils, etc. Thanks for your help!!
