This is when I realised the importance of having core essentials in the pantry, just like mum.
Pantry staples are the secret to transforming your fresh produce into something amazing, and can also be a complete saviour if you need to make something tasty in a hurry.
Here’s a list of the pantry staples that I can’t live without.
Salt is my number one flavour enhancer. I never run out of salt and if I run low I start to get anxious. Joking, but it’s true – I season practically every dish with salt.
I have different kinds of olive oils for different uses.
I cook with olive oil daily and use it a lot in my salad dressings.
We go through about 1ltr every 10-14 days if I’m cooking every meal at home. There are also many health benefits to cooking with olive oil and I’m a massive advocate for it.
I always have butter. I use it in baking, making sauces like a beurre noisette or beurre blanc, gravies or just simply lathered all over my sourdough. There is very little that comes close to being better than bread and butter.
I love having eggs in the morning and whilst I don’t have them every day, I think every household ought to have a tray of eggs ready in their pantry.
They’re such a versatile pantry staple; you can whip up a meal in no time at any time of the day, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just a snack.
