I was asked by a few people to create a store cupboard essentials list so that with the addition of fresh ingredients my recipes can be knocked up without the need for a daily visit to the supermarket. So here it is – an inventory of essential pantry semi-perishable stables. Think of your kitchen cupboards or larder as your basic cooking wardrobe. If you keep these in your kitchen at all times, you can create a huge variety of recipes by just shopping for fresh fish, meat and seasonal vegetables and fruit weekly.
