From Michael (Herbivoracious), in Seattle, Washington:
I find having bottles of delicious, high quality oils, vinegars, soy sauces and so on within reach of my stove and cutting board makes cooking much more efficient. These are the ingredients I grab every day for a saute, deglaze, pan sauce, hit of flavor, vinaigrette or final garnish. I'd be curious what other folks keep on that special "quick grab" shelf.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries will be ending in early 2009 to make way for a new Saturday feature. If you'd like to share your pantry photos, please send them as soon as possible!
