A bit about larders & store-cupboards


I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a well-stocked larder. Ideally, it should be easy to see at a glance what foodstuffs you have, and to this end a dedicated space such as a press or cupboard is perfect. It should be the key to easy meals and indeed, a source of great inspiration. I would regularly stand at my larder looking for ideas for dinner, with nothing particular in mind, other than knowing my start point is perhaps some chicken fillets or a nice bit of fish. I might then decide on some noodles with condiments like teryaki sauce, mirin, honey, garlic and lemon – hey presto! we have teryaki salmon and noodles – it really is as easy as that.

I find that the best place to keep spices, herbs and condiments is as close to the hob as possible, in plain view, ready to inspire me.
