Scenario: Sicily, it’s snowing, sexy date says yes to dinner at your place.

You frantically yet coolly survey the kitchen pantry. Take a beat, then slow down and think. It’s cold out so a hot dish but nothing too heavy so she, or you, don’t conk out by 9pm on the couch. Something with some spice and a bit exotic. In the pantry I see a tin of skinless, boneless sardines packed in olive oil and a box of pasta. In the fridge we have fennel, a lemon, parsley, garlic cloves and anchovies in oil. In Sicily this classic pasta with sardines dish would also have raisins and Pignoli nuts but for tonight we go with what we have.

Stocking the pantry

Your pantry should have the essentials plus some strategic specials. Always be prepared and you can do anything.
