Top it with a beef and tomato sauce for a delicious Italian meal. Other useful utensils include a mandolin slicer, glass bowls for mixing and storing, wooden cutting boards, high-quality knives, a garlic press, a grater (including a fine one for fresh ginger), a citrus peel slicer, and a small hand citrus juicer for use in recipes.
In addition, the two most frequently used appliances in my kitchen are a food processor (I have a Cuisinart but any good brand will work) and a very good blender (I have a Vita-Mix). If you’re buying organic meat in bulk, a grinder (to make fresh ground meat) and/or a slicer is very useful.
Glass and heavy-duty stainless steel pots and pans provide the cookware. Avoid all aluminum, copper and non-stick products due to the potential for food contamination. Iron cookware is also good except avoid using high-acid foods in them, including tomato and vinegar.
