If you have been following me on Instagram or the blog for the past couple of months you will know that I have been cooking and baking a lot. It is my way of coping with all this craziness in the world. It keeps me sane and lets me escape from the news for a bit as I am concentrating on a new recipe or watching the oven while something bakes. You can see the recipes I have made here.
When I started the Frenchify series back in March, I taught you How to Frenchify Your Kitchen. I had requests to break down things a little more so I decided to write on How to Stock a French Pantry. I love grocery shopping when I am abroad. I didn’t know this was something my grandma loved too until recently when my aunt told me. She used to always like to pop into the grocery in another country to see what they had on the shelves. I know she would enjoy this post and ask me to pick up one or two of the things on the list that she didn’t have at home just out of curiosity. I hope you find this post helpful and interesting.
What is something you always have in your pantry?
Piment d’espelette from the Basque country in Southern France. The flavor is smokey and similar to Paprika.
Bonne Maman Jams ( I love the apricot one the best)
Eggs (typical French leave their eggs on the counter and do not put them in the fridge)
Oil for making dressing
