1. Unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil - I would describe it as a full flavored olive oil. Once you use it you will never go back to any other olive oil. If you can’t find it Extra Virgin Olive Oil will do just fine.

2. Balsamic Vinegar - Preferably a well aged vinegar, but at least a good balsamic.

3. Red Wine Vinegar

4. Arborio Rice

5. Medium Grain Rice

6. Flour- You can’t hardly have any usable kitchen without flour.

7. Panko Japanese Style Bread Crumbs

8. Hot Sauce

9. Granulated Sugar

10. Brown Sugar

11. Dried Beans

12. Cornmeal

13. Semolina Flour

14. Sun dried Tomatoes

15. Tomato Paste

16. Tomato Sauce

17. Vegetable Oil

18. Cornstarch

19. Saltines, or some form of good cracker.

20. Dehydrated Potatoes

21. Canned Milk

22. Sweetened Condensed Milk

23. Canned Sweet Corn

24. Chicken Broth

25. Beef Broth

With just a few other ingredients from your refrigerator or freezer and some spices you will be able to make most basic recipes and more with my list.


I love this list. All of these are must haves. Semolina Flour is very hard to find around here though. Great list though.
