I saw that part of the show. Somehow, I think they severely limited his number of
recommendations. Can't overwhelm the masses, ya know?

Thats one short list! I don't have garlic powder or onion powder though...not something I'd used.

I too am shocked that worchestershire is missing from the list - that stuff is brilliant! It goes with everything!

I'll have to look around for white peppercorns. Never tried them before. (My salt tends to stick together ).

GG, maybe I dosed off - but first I thought he said you only need one salt - Kosher salt (not all the fancy salts i.e. fleur de sel, etc.); then saw the white peppercorns. Did I miss something? White peppercorns is reg salt, no?

Ther are a few "staples" I keep around - in a pinch (lol), i.e. Italian Seasonings & lemon pepper. Guess we all have our favorites. Oh, below the spice list are some baking staples to have around. He also mentioned chicken broth (got it) & I keep bouillion cubes as well. Can't remember the last time I used it though. So that's going.

Well, I have everything he suggests. I use canning and pickling salt instead of Kosher. I don't have whole nutmeg. Hardly ever use it, unless I'm eating oatmeal, or baking. I have paprika, but I'm not sure if it's Spanish or not. Probably not. I'm currently out of honey, need to get more, but PeppA doesn't like me keeping honey around, as I'll use it to sweeten my coffee, and she can't handle the smell of coffee/honey combined.

I just finished replenishing my stock. I lost all my chicken, beef, and seafood stock in the ice storm last month. This past weekend I finally finished both my beef stock and shrimp stock. I made Poultry stock last weekend.

Chef Flay recommends a POUND of cornstarch??? Wow, that's a lot, even for me at work!

I agree with Uncle Bob, though. Where's the cayenne, Tabasco, and Louisiana Hot Sauce?

White Peppercorns are the same thing as Black peppercorns, except the black covering of the seed has been worn or abraded off. I do keep some on hand, as I use it in cooking Cajun.
