In the multicultural smorgasbord we’ve laid on in this issue, our hope is that you find as many recognisable and comforting flavours as you do intriguingly exotic ones you’d like to try for the first time. And who knows? You may just find your new favourite ingredient among these pages. Certainly, for the F&HE team and its valued contributors, every edition we put together offers the chance to learn more about at least one new product we’ve never worked with before. What I most love about such discoveries is that they can lead to journeys of exploration – a kitchen should be as much a place of experimentation as familiar territory, after all!
