I have been wanting to show you my pantry for a while, but I was waiting until I tidied it up before taking the pictures. I do not have a proper kitchen at the moment, it is not built! I do have an American style fridge/freezer, an 8 ring, 3 oven and grill range cooker and a dishwasher, so I am not exactly slumming it, but I don’t have cupboards. Therefore most of the kitchen ‘stuff’ gets thrown in to the pantry and it is always a mess. So I have given up waiting for it to look all tidy and organised and decided to show you it in all its messy glory!
I have always wanted a proper walk in pantry, complete with butler sink. At the back of the barge is an area which doesn’t have a lot of head room and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly what this space was going to be used for! It was the first area to be built (my hubby knows the way to my heart!) and I love my pantry and my butler sink. It will eventually be fully tiled so that it will stay cool in the summer.
A few of my vegan cookbooks. Believe me, I have hundreds of cookbooks on bookshelves elsewhere!
Yes, you can see a few of my omnivore hubby’s stores hidden away here!
My spice racks for smaller jars. I buy large packets of herbs and spices or dehydrate my own and store them in much larger jars on the pantry shelves.
This picture gives you an idea of the space in the food storage area. But I have to confess this picture was taken when the pantry was very new, before we moved on to the barge, hence the reason it is so neat! And it will be again when I get my kitchen and more space.
And here is last night’s dinner; Rice Island Casserole from Vegan on the Cheap by Robin Robertson. It was absolutely delicious.
