[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #00adef;”] A[/dropcap] few weeks ago I interviewed my lovely Parisian friend Clotilde about her brilliant new Cookbook ‘Tasting Paris’.
The question I was most excited about was:
What are the 5 ingredients no self-respecting Parisian would ever be without?
I loved Clotilde’s answer…
A hunk of Comté cheese, artisanal bread from the corner bakery, fresh vegetables from the produce stand, a few tins of sardines, a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge.
It got me thinking it might be fun to share my own ‘desert island’ ingredients…
5-Ingredients I Always Have in the House
When I first met my Irishman he thought I was a little crazy when I told him I always had to have lemons in the fridge.
I was also brave enough to let him know about my phobia of running out of loo paper which he also shared. I knew then that he was the one for me.
My favourite canned fish. Maybe I was Parisian in a former life…
My go-to cheese for cooking or snacking and because it lasts forever in the fridge.
The Low-Carb answer to a hunk of bread from the artisinal bakery! I always have multiple types of nuts in the house. At the moment there are pine nuts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, pecan and macadamias. I know.
5. Fresh and / or Frozen Veggies
When the vegetable section of my fridge starts looking sparse, I immediately plan a trip to the farmers market. And while I love having lots of amazing seasonal vegetables at my finger tips, having my back up of frozen peas and spinach has been a life-saver on more than one occasion!
Wow sticking to 5 is hard!
