Where in the world?

Each week we want to tell you a bit more about some of the ingredients and where in the world they came from. As the world opened up, so did the ingredients being used, and where they were being sourced. Some of them were home-grown, but many were transported from far-flung corners of the world.

Using the Cook-a-long video and recipes in Steps 4.16 and 4.17 we have animated four ingredients so you can get a sense of the journeys these ingredients went on before arriving on the table.

We have also included some further ingredient facts in this PDF for you to digest!
