    Wife is on a ginger/tumeric kick atm

    Sazón, Cavendars Greek seasoning, Mustard powder, Onion powder are all in heavy use here in addition to the ones you listed.

    Butter not margarine
    Coarse sea salt not iodized
    - if it's on the plate, it's too late

    I'm heavily into Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi food - kitchen essentials include garlic, ginger, cumin seeds, coriander powder, turmeric, paprika, garam masala, lentils, kasuri methi, kashmiri chilli powder, black mustard seeds, asafoetida, dried mango powder and lots of ghee. Also fresh coriander (cilantro) and loads of onions.

    My essentials:

    • Butter
    • Onions
    • Cumin
    • Wine
    • Thyme

    Good knives are essential too! 8" French chefs, paring and filet can do everything. Remember: You are more likely to cut yourself with a dull knife! Keep them sharp.

    Salt and paprika are my two things I use quite a bit. with the perfect amount of salt I can make anything taste good. I find paprika to be underrated and underutilized.

    I don't microwave it nowadays though, I add a bit of water and put it to a boil for a couple of mins. It's better that way.

    Start f**king with bay leaves. I use them in almost every pot roast or soup. You're welcome. The OG's have been mentioned so ill try to add things not mentioned. Cayenne pepper is one of my favorite ingredients for adding flavor and a punch. Honey and apple cider vinegar are natural tenderizers and can add a ton of flavor to a dish. FRESH BASIL (my neighbor grows) i use it in cooking and drinks all the time. Himalayan pink salt tastes better to me than regular salt but I think that's just in my head.
