While we’re all stuck at home, and not able to travel the world, we thought we would bring our destinations to you so you can roam from home. Travel around the world, without leaving your kitchen with our Cooking Around The World With Tru series.

Don’t worry, if you missed out - we’ve recapped the cooking lesson below.
