One time or another, we’ve all started the dinner only to realise that we’re missing one thing or another. Whether its pasta, rice, herbs or seasoning, the last thing you want to do is ruin a meal because you haven’t stocked your pantry properly. The key to successful cooking is making sure that you have all the important ingredients to hand, even if they’re not part of your recipe. If you don’t, you’ll find yourself putting the cooking on hold so you can dash to the nearest supermarket – it’s amazing how some of the smallest additions from your pantry can enhance your meal.
Food shopping is so much easier and cost effective when you have a well-stocked pantry, as you only have to purchase the basics like meat or fresh vegetables, and not every other accompaniment like sauces. Furthermore, by buying your pantry items in bulk, you’ll be able to keep your store well stocked as well as keeping your costs down – it’s all about saving time when you shop!
