The closet pantry is a FABULOUS idea. The idea of having all of your basics in ONE place is a rather exciting one in NYC.

Thanks for the tip!


What a wonderful pantry! Happy filling it up!!! And thanks for the mention of my site -- I'm so glad you are enjoying it.


OH -- I have the very same steamer! Purchased it at a Laotian market in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, a few months ago. It's beautiful, isn't it?


This looked so awesome that I went out and got one. I'm going to try to use it as a couscousier, too, if I can!

Danielle, so glad you got one. They are incredible. Did you also get it at Bangkok Thai Grocery? Let me know if it works with couscous. I suspect the couscous may fall through the slats in the steamer but a piece of cheesecloth lining the bottom may help.


Yep, that's where I got it. It's just half a block away from where we were getting dim sum that morning, after all.

I'm told it's best to use cheesecloth when using it for sticky rice, too, if only to help with clean-up. So that was part of my plan.

I'll definitely update you once I give it a try. (If I'm feeling really brave, maybe that's what I'll try to make for the potluck... with a back-up plan, just in case.)
