Style stages a Pantry Raid

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 21st 2007 5:41PM

canned foodI don't cook much, choosing to eat all of my food frozen, but I like the idea of Pantry Raid, a new series on the Style network debuting August 29 at 9:00 p.m.

Chef Michael Schulson will go into a person's house and try to whip up a meal using only food found in that person's pantry. As a bachelor who is slowly but surely learning how to make meals that don't require reading instructions on the back of a box, I find the idea appealing. Can you make something out of applesauce, hominy, pumpkin pie filling and rat poison? Because that's pretty much what's in my pantry.

Actually, Schulson will also be able to use items from the cabinets and fridge, though I think it would be more fun if he was only limited to the pantry. Nevertheless, it will be nice to see a cooking show for people who don't have a lot of food, or fancy cooking gadgets like garlic presses, oatmeal laminaters and dual-purpose diesel-powered banana extractors and peel refillers.

Haha. I'd love to see what someone could make out of my pantry. I have olive oil, pepper, ketchup, bbq sauce,... well, everything I have is condiments. o_O Except for the can of carrots. I do have a can of diced carrots.

This was an even better idea five years ago, when it was a show on the Food Network called "Doorknock Dinners."
