Some of the recipes on Studio Kitchen may need ingredients not normally found in a home pantry. Or you may want more information on some of the ingredients you have seen on this site. This is now your one stop shop for ingredient information.

This is a growing list of some of the more unusual or hard to find ingredients, that you may need to source, to complete some of the recipes found here. Where possible we will recommend places to find and substitutes for ingredients and we will explain what each ingredient is used for and why. Is there an ingredient you would like to see here?
