Celebrity designer Bobby Berk of Queer Eye fame has just launched a new blog encompassing design, lifestyle, health and wellness, and shopping. In an inaugural post on pantry essentials, Berk outlines his kitchen must-haves, favorite spices, and go-to sauces, explaining, "As much as I try to plan my meals and be prepared, sometimes life gets in the way. When that happens I have two choices, splurge on Postmates (rarely on something healthy) or throw something together with whatever I have in my pantry."

Keep scrolling to see the accessories Berk deems indispensable for the kitchen and pantry, and then head to his post to read the rest.
