Farm to table, great. Store to table, also great. Especially when it’s this store. Pantry is the newest and freshest way to grocery shop. The store is a beautiful place, warm and well-stocked with dinner plans for every taste. There’s also a carefully curated selection of cooking utensils and pans – the chef’s choice – gorgeously displayed and reasonably priced, too. Recent college grads? Empty nesters? Busy families? They’ve got you covered for dinner, anyway.
I decided to try the salmon since we all love it, and I needed a new way to prepare it. Okay, I was asked repeatedly to find a new way to prepare it and finally took the clue.
Here’s the recipe I made – Salmon with Spinach Barley.
Delicious, different and on the table in under 40 minutes. The recipe card says 35 minutes which is pretty accurate, I’m always a bit pokey the first time I make something.
So the shopping was a joy, the prep was a breeze. And here’s the final dish. And they pair beer or wine options (and have them in the store) with every recipe. Brilliant.
I’m definitely voting Pantry as most likely to be a new favorite place for dinner. Why? The store is gorgeous, the food locally sourced, the recipes fantastic – easy to execute but sophisticated – and you choose your own fresh ingredients.
This super sweet shop is in Brookline at 1622 Beacon Street – easy to get to and great to stop by if you are driving home past it. On the T? Just jump off the Green Line, grab your dinner and head home!
Head on over to Leah’s Life to see what they thought of the Thanksgiving Turkey Roulade.
And thank you to Leah for the great photos and for being so much fun!
Happy dinner planning!
I was not compensated for this post but was given the ingredients for the meal above to facilitate the review. I purchased the beer and wine myself, and some Justin’s peanut butter cups which did not make it home. Sorry, family. All opinions are, as always, my own.
