Stock your Pantry with these ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS

Times are tough right now, not only here in Spain, but for most of the world. Between all the lockdowns & quarantines, we´re all pretty much stuck at home until this spreading virus goes away. With that being said, it´s time to stock your pantry with essential ingredients to make it through these hard times.


The truth is, when you go to the supermarket right now, things are just not the same. Many items are sold-out or limited and let´s face it, people are buying way too much toilet paper. But we won´t be getting into that.


So what exactly does essential ingredients mean? Just the basic stuff folks. Everything from canned beans to canned tomatoes to frozen vegetables. The key here is to stock up on items that last a long time and are healthy-ish.


I have created a list of ingredients you need for your pantry, basic baking, fridge and freezer. These items are perfect for the hard-times we´re living in right now, but you should stock up on these ingredients all the time. I will be using these items exclusively here on Spain on a Fork until things get back to normal. Watch the video below, where I will walk you through all the essential items you need for your pantry. Stay safe out there ? .


Key Ingredients & Cookware I use:
TRADITIONAL PAELLA PAN
ROUND RICE
HIGH-QUALITY SAFFRON
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
SPANISH SEA SALT

    I found your youtube channel looking for flatbread recipes. I watched your 2 flatbread shows and subscribed. 2 Questions: how much and what herbs can you add to the dough? Thanks, Brad

      You can add in any herbs you like, such as oregano, thyme and rosemary, about 1 tsp each 🙂 much love

    Thank you for your great videos! I’m trying to utilize more legumes and less meat in my dishes and most of your dishes have helped me move in that direction.

    I have a question about paprika. What types of paprika do you have in your pantry, and how do they compare to the generically-labeled paprika that we frequently find in the States? I want to make sure I’m getting the right varieties when I’m cooking these recipes.

      I use sweet smoked Spanish paprika, as it has a deeper depth of flavors. You can find it on amazon 🙂 much love
