The Pantry : Part 1

The CC is frequently asked how he manages to make all the stuff he does. Crucial to the entire scheme is a large pantry.

The CC has seen many people's pantries, and it's a very safe bet that the CC's is about 4-5X larger than most. Living in New York where space is at a premium!

How else is one to "effortlessly" whip up different kinds of salads night after night and/or other culinary wonders if one doesn't have the ingredients at hand?

This is definitely one of those "momentum" things. Having stocked it over time, it is one of the easiest things to just keep rolling.

There is shockingly little wastage too, and you don't need to grow your own food neither (Hello, Michael Pollan, daaaaaaah-ling!!!!!!!!)

These should be the staples of your pantry:
  • oils
  • vinegars
  • nuts
  • lentils
  • rices (sic)
  • wheat products
  • dried products (mushroom, fish, flowers)
  • flours
  • canned food.
