The UK certainly has an appetite for international cuisine. With Italian, Turkish, Thai, Indian and Mexican restaurants lining our high streets, there’s never been a better time to experience the flavours of the world.

Take a look below at the recipes and features we’ve put together in partnership with Lee Kum Kee and get inspired.
