What’s in Your Pantry? Try These Reliable Staples

Welcome to Fustini's

February 2021

Just In...

Take a glance into your pantry. You’ll probably find some common condiments and staples that are helpful to have on-hand. For me, my pantry includes things like salt, a plethora of spices and flavorful honeys. And of course, my extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars are a must. Go-to pantry items like these can make meal planning and cooking so much easier, especially when things get busy.

This week, we’re exploring some fun pantry items you can find at Fustini’s. From flavor-enhancing salts to bright sauces to versatile seasonings that help transform a dish, you’ll want to have these ingredients around when you get started in the kitchen.

Enjoy, stay safe and eat well.


Making Every Day Gourmet
