Red onions, Spanish onions, sweet onions and shallots, as well as garlic, make up the bottom-most bin of dry goods on set.

Pick Your Citrus

Oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit add refreshing bursts of brightness to sweet and savory dishes alike.

Multiuse Gadgets

Can openers, mesh strainers and a pizza wheel are just a few of the handy tools Bobby keeps within easy reach.

Pantry Products

Bobby opts for a mix of grains, like wheat berries, farro and pasta, in his pantry. He also keeps such assorted nuts as almonds, hazelnuts and pecans on hand for additional crunch.

Southwestern Spice

It's no secret that Bobby likes to bring the heat, so he always keeps jalapeno, serrano, Fresno, poblano and bell peppers handy.

Chilled Section

A small refrigerator houses butter, berries and prepared dishes.

Finishing Touches

Try serving everyday condiments like mayonnaise and ketchup in small bowls instead of their bottles for an extra-special presentation. Bobby keeps these products on hand, as well as assorted hot sauces, Sriracha, Korean chili sauce, chipotles in adobo and molasses.

Personality with Plates

Bold-colored and patterned serving pieces add a splash of personality.

Bar Cart

Opt for a mix of wines, liquors and beer to complete a backyard bar. Bobby likes to keep beer, vodka, gin, white and aged tequila, dark and white rum, and both red and white wine.

Mixed Drinks

Keep a shaker, muddler and ice bucket handy to mix up the ultimate cocktail.

The True Essentials

Few dishes are complete without sprinkles of salt and black pepper.
