o Top quality ventilation. My exhaust fan is the size of a small volkswagen.
o A long-handled whisk. OK, several of them.
o Lots of seasoned cast iron.
o A freezer full of homemade stock. Nothing else goes in the freezer except ice cubes and ice cream. Ban the nasty bouillon cubes, man.
o A terrifyingly sharp chef's knife.
o Orange extract.
o Olive oil. Lots of olive oil.
o An open bottle of Gigondas. Or, if you're buying, Chateauneuf du Pape. And a wedge of delice de bourgogne.
There are a few other requirements, but we can mostly make do if these 'ingredients' are available.
