  23. This does look good indeed!

    I have a favor to ask. As I am very interested in your style of cooking, I would like to stock my pantry to make it easier to make your recipes. While some ingredients are not available to me, I think I should be able to mail order the spices with ease. If you have time, would you mind letting me know what kind of spices would are typical for your pantry? I think that would be a good place to start.
