You can tell quite a lot about someone from the inside of their fridge. Three bottles of Sriracha? Hello, takeout. A bottle of chilled Champagne? Party-ready, always. In short, the main staples you keep in the kitchen truly predict how you'll cook, entertain, and midnight-snack at home. And, we're always looking for inspiration to up our pantry game in a way that might actually encourage
us to cook.
To that end, we kitchen-crashed on some pros. Meet Karen Mordechai from New York, Lauren Godfrey from San Francisco, and Barrett Prendergast from Los Angeles. Besides all having ridiculously glowing skin and light-filled cooking areas we would kill for, they also know how to stock an ice box effectively. Ahead, get the scoop on their favorite year-round recipes, guilty kitchen pleasures, and whether they really
do the dishes right away.
