I recently read in a magazine about ceramic knives and how they practically never need to be sharpened, are very sharp themselves and are excellent in the home kitchen. Are they worth getting, and is a cheaper version still good in terms of durability and quality?

Nigella's Chocolate Guiness Cake is my entire family's favorite recipe. We have recently moved from Toronto to Denver. The altitude in Denver is over 5000 feet above sea level - an entire mile higher then Toronto. Everytime I've tried this favorite cake it puffs up, falls and turns out in a thin layer that looks life fudge. We really love this recipe and I would LOVE to have your suggestions for how to alter the recipe to be used in high altitude. My family and I both thank you for your help!

Hi, I moved back to Argentina after living for several years in Ireland and find it difficult to get some ingredients here. In particular cream of tartar and lemon curd - I am trying to find something similar and I just can't. Please help me out on this. I am dying to try your Lemon Meringue Cake (Feast, p170)! Thank you!
