Kitchen Must Haves for Italians and Those Who Love to Eat Italian Food

Whether you have honed your skills in culinary school, learned at the side of your nonna or you simply love the idea of making your own Italian cuisine at home, here are ten essentials to you must have in your kitchen to get the job done right.  

 

1.  A good 8-inch chef’s knife.  Handy for everything from chopping vegetables to deboning meat, a good chef’s knife will last forever when taken care of and will be useful for prepping any dish.

 

2.  Skillets and braising pans are must-haves, especially because Italian cooking is done mostly over the stove.

 

3.  Extra virgin olive oil.  Lots of it.  

 

4.  A vegetable peeler.

 

5.  A good cheese grater.

 

6.  Fresh herbs, such as rosemary, basil, sage and oregano.

 

7.  Fresh garlic.

 

8.  Onions.  I prefer the sweetness of yellow onions but any kind will due.  Sautéed onions are a great starter for many delicious Italian recipes.

 

9.  Canned tomatoes.  All varieties from crushed to diced to peeled.  It’s amazing how many dishes and sauces these can be added to for that extra texture and flavor.

 

10.  Pastas of all different shapes, sizes and lengths. I have six clear canisters next to my stove so I always have a selection to choose from and they look as good as they taste.
