Where can I get the frozen artichokes that Nigella has been using in her new book? I live in London? Thank you x
I love the simplicity of the Nigellissima series. In episode 3 there is a side dish called "Broad Beans, Peas and Artichokes" - please tell me where I can source frozen artichoke ends (as used in the episode) or crowns as I have searched everywhere! Thank you, Mac83
Where can I buy the frozen artichoke bottoms that Nigella used on her TV programme? I live near Reading in Berkshire, and can't find anyone round here that sells them. Dinapax
Having seen your latest Nigellissima episode my husband, who loves broad beans, would like to try The Peas, Beans and Artichokes. I am unable to find any frozen artichoke bottoms and would be grateful if you let me know where I can get them. Thank you. Jan Ferris

I cooked Nigella's Oeufs en Cocotte (from Nigella Express) as per the instructions in the recipe, but the yolks were solid. Should I have turned over down to 170C for Fan oven?

I've made banana bread several times and I can't seem to understand why it rises nicely, and even when I've taken it out the oven the 'rise' stays but then once it starts to cool it falls flat. What is the reason for this? Am I over mixing at the end or is there too much moisture? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

I have finally gotten hold of a copy of Forever Summer, and am really looking forward to trying the brioche recipe (p 246). However, the measurement for the yeast is "1 sachet" - how much is this in teaspoons or grams? I want to be sure as the yeast I buy comes in 8g sachets, but I've also had large jars of yeast (no sachet). Thanks heaps!

I bought smoked cod roe to make taramasalata but it has a very bitter taste. Is there something I can add to the recipe to reduce this bitterness?

I watched Nigella make her No Churn Coffee Ice Cream and will be having a go soon, but I cannot find anywhere to buy the ice cream tubs used on the TV show. Where do you get yours from please?
Hi, I' ve just watched the new episode of Nigellissima (wonderful as always!) where she made a No Churn Coffee Ice Cream. Nigella used some great plain ice-cream tubs to freeze this in and I just wondered where these were sourced as I would love some for my own kitchen? If you could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. Many thanks. Caroline.
Hi, I have been glued to Nigellisma on BBC 2 and I noticed Nigella using her own paper ice cream tubs for her No Churn Coffee Ice Cream. Can you tell me where these can be bought from? Thanks Lou.
