I want to know two things. Can I make suet puddings (savoury) in advance a couple of days? If I use leftovers from the Sunday lunch meat does the pastry take less time to cook?

I made Nigella's Christmas Rocky Road which was divine but many of the pieces were lost in crumbs as they did not keep together when I cut it into pieces. i'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any tips for it not to happen again?

I used cured chorizo in the Spanish Chicken With Chorizo recipe and it became very hard, almost inedible and my adult children said it almost needed a gravy. In Australia We also have sausages which are chorizo flavoured, should I have used these instead?

I would like to make Nigella's Clementine Cake and wondering if instead of boiling the fruit for 2 hours, could the clementines could be cooked in a pressure cooker? If yes, then for how long and at what pressure?

Hello, I would love to know the brand of the beautiful stove kettle Nigella has in her kitchen in her TV series Nigellissima. Thank you in advance, Penny Cipriani.
Where did Nigella get her kettle from? The one that is heated over the hob. Thank you. Claudib00.
