Aussie chef, Bill Granger, has the inside scoop on things he always keeps in his pantry.
Bill Granger has a few ideas on how to help you stretch out the time between trips to the grocery store.
We asked him what he always has in his kitchen cupboard that help make any dish restaurant quality!
1. Sea salt
Any good food needs seasoning and nothing lifts your cooking like good-quality sea salt!
2. Olive oil
How did we ever cook without it? I have a basic cheap one for all cooking, and save a special one for drizzling on salads.
No matter where in the world, they form the basis of most savoury dishes from all cuisines.
Great food is about a balance of flavour, and dash of lemon juice or a little lemon zest can be that missing magic.
Wholemeal and white - pasta is the great fast food, and I really love wholemeal these days, for its nutty qualities.
Jasmine, brown, basmati, arborio - with these four, you have the arsenal of rice. It's hard to believe it used to be only short or long grain!
7. Great-quality Bread
The staff of life - and try and make sure it has no nasty trans-fats! With good bread, even butter on toast can taste delicious.
8. Soy sauce
9. Dijon mustard
The perfect steak is not complete without mustard! This condiment can also be used to make dressings, glazes and marinades for meat dishes.
10. Tinned tomatoes
I often think tinned tomatoes are my most-used ingredients, a great way to add instant flavour to dishes.
