The Perfect Serve


Pantry Staples

1. Collagen

It’s good for your hair, skin and nails and can be added to anything and everything, with no taste and ALL the health bene ts.

2. Truffle Oil

Here’s an easy way to elevate even the simplest of dishes. Thought your eggs couldn’t get any better? Well, drizzle some truffle oil over them for that added je ne sais quoi

3. Nuts, nut butter/flour, and seeds

These are absolute superfoods. Nuts and seeds are powerhouse suppliers of protein and healthy fats. They also add a nutritious crunch to everything from snacks, salads and sweets.

4. Whole-grains and legumes

The original pantry staples! Buy in bulk if possible, and store in glass jars or other sturdy storage containers. Lentils, oats, basmati rice, sorghum, farro, whole wheat couscous etc.

5. High quality Vanilla Extract and High-quality chocolate

The best quality vanilla extract you can nd, and top-quality cooking chocolate make a huge difference when it comes to your bakes. They may be the difference between good and great, do not settle.

6. Editor’s pick: Gochujang

Korean cuisine just bursts with avour, and with gochujang, you can introduce that avour burst to your chicken wings, ramen and so much more. But what is it? It is a thick and spicy-sweet crimson paste made from red chili pepper akes, glutinous rice (also known as sticky rice), fermented soybeans, and salt.
