Beau MacMillan: Spices for Every Season(ing)

"A great extra virgin olive oil is a necessity. You've got to have a killer sea salt and garlic, ginger — anything super fragrant like that is a base for most of my cooking."

Guy Fieri: Loaves and ... More Loaves

"Usually it's bread. (I feel like I'm in a self-help right now.) You know, a baguette of sourdough, just really good, crunchy. We get two, because one will be halfway gone by the time we get home." 

Richard Blais: Body Wash

"Usually an economy-sized pump bottle of Old Spice body wash, if you must know."

Troy Johnson: Cleanse Necessities

"Usually, every single time I go, I have about nine bushels of kale, because kale is kind of the way I balance out my life — after eating at so many restaurants during the week (they are short on kale, usually, and heavy on pork belly)."

Robert Irvine: A Multi-Purpose Oil

"Grape seed oil. It's so versatile. I can use it to make delicious marinades, to cook with, or simply to add a unique flavor to a salad dressing I’m throwing together."

G. Garvin: Oiled Up

"I can never walk out of a grocery store without a really good olive oil. Not for cooking but for salads or for my smoked salmon, my vinaigrettes. Absolutely."

Melissa d'Arabian: Bargain Beef

"Whatever meat is advertised in the flier. I always buy it then and take it home to freeze."

Brian Malarkey: Simple Pleasures

"Avocados, wine, cheese, charcuterie."

Catherine McCord: Dairy Demands

"I mean, I've got two kids, so there's no way I could ever escape without, like, milk and yogurt."

Madison Cowan: The Big Cheese

"Definitely cheese. But then you'll need bread — and fruit or a good jam, of course." 

Aarti Sequeira: She Shops Gingerly

"For some reason, every time I go to the supermarket I always buy ginger. So I literally have, like, 2 pounds of ginger in my fridge."

Duskie Estes: Something Sweet

"It's-It (an ice cream sandwich made in San Francisco with oatmeal cookies and vanilla ice cream that's chocolate-dipped) or coconut peanut butter." 

Judy Joo: Snack Attack

"Hummus — my go-to snack"

Christy Vega: The Only Way Is the Milky Way

"Milk. We put [it in] cereal, coffee, everything. My boys love milk, so I can't leave without milk."
