Find That Ingredient was started by people who are passionate about cooking/food and wanted easier access to ingredients. We aim to connect people with their local food stores, and help them to experiment with lesser known, unusual ingredients, or impress dinner guests with high quality dishes made from unusual vegetarian/vegan ingredients. FTI is designed to fill in the missing link between customer and supplier, by putting ingredients and stockists all on one easy to use website and, moreover, giving customers access to retailers that actually stock the produce they are seeking.
However, if what you're looking for isn't available, then FTI can still help. By registering as Food Detective
you can let us know of any ingredients we have missed, new ones introduced by a TV chef or in a recently purchased recipe book.
