On Zagat I noticed they had a short bit about Gordon Ramsay and the 5 things he thinks everyone should keep in their fridge. First, for the record, here they are (his reasoning is viewable here):

1. Pink champagne
2. Half a dozen eggs
3. Creme fraiche
4. Block of aged Parmesan
5. Spicy hummus

I, for one, always have eggs in my fridge (usually multiple dozen – we eat a lot of eggs); sometimes I have a block of aged Parm but most often I get it ground up at Rosario’s (I do buy Parmigiano-Reggiano, nom). But I don’t keep spicy hummus, creme fraiche, and pink champagne in my fridge. And where can you get pink champagne anyway?

For the record – I do love spicy hummus (Sabra!).

My list would look more like this:

1. Eggs
2. Yogurt (I prefer mine strained)
3. Hot sauce
4. Bacon
5. Lemons

What would be on your list of five things everyone should keep in their fridge? Leave us a comment or tweet us at @weheartastoria!

@Jenn – oooh, salsa is a good one!
@mackenzi – I also keep dark chocolate in the fridge! I also usually have milk in there. I’ve been wanting to try to make my own almond milk for a while now.
