The Deliveroo Editions kitchen in Leeds.

Inside the 'dark kitchen' in Leeds where meals are made for Deliveroo home delivery

We were given a tour of the Deliveroo Editions kitchen on the edge of Chapeltown in Leeds, as chefs prepared for a Wednesday evening shift.

For many, the sites are shrouded in mystery but Deliveroo invited us along to show what goes on behind closed doors and shed light on where home-delivery meals come from when customers order from an Editions kitchen on the delivery company's app.
