Working in the city, I often have to pop out for a quick lunch to eat at my desk, and these are not always going to be of the best quality. Therefore I have found it's always useful to build up a store back at base camp of tasty toppings that can improve any meal.
I'm going condi-mental!
My current line up includes;
Sweet Chilli Sauce - For those sagging salads that need a quick improvement Chilli Sesame oil - To help ramen and sushi Hoi sin Sauce - for Pho and in case I ever get the chance to roast a duck at my desk Sriracha - Guaranteed to make anything twice as tasty with the power of fire and garlic Soy Sauce Kimchi Rice Seasoning flakes - A donation to the cause from a member of my team, not opened by I'm looking forward to it.
This line up is ever expanding, and I'd recommend that anyone with a fixed desk at work do something similar. It feels odd at first, until you realise that everyone has started using/contributing to the stock...
