Chef Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.What should I have in my pantry?

This was a question asked of me recently about what are the best and healthiest ingredients. The conversation was about having a list of good choices to purchase when you're at the grocery. What is a good cut of beef that will taste great and be healthier? Which oils to use? How about butter and other dairy products? In essence, what are the best supplies for stocking a pantry with ingredients that taste great and are great for you -- a master shopping list if you will.

Over the next few weeks I am going to break this down to help you create a master list of what to choose when you're in the grocery and last week I started with beef. This week I am going to continue with red meats. I will include such things as pork, liver and lamb in this section of the list. In Your Pantry: Red Meats
