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 3.12 and 3.13 we have animated five 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!

UPDATE Monday 14:20pm (BST) 12 July 2016:

Please note the following correction for the animation: Port came from Portugal and sweet potato came from South America and Spain.
