Chef Stephanie Izard just launched a virtual pantry that’s stocked with her favorite ingredients

Upgrade your pantry with pickled veggies, kimchi and pretzel ice cream.


If you're anything like us, you've already demolished your tastiest lockdown supplies—including your last jar of kimchi and that bag of chocolate chips that was hiding in the back of your cupboard. Thankfully, Chicago chef Stephanie Izard is opening her pantry to local diners with her new virtual grocery store, cheekily named Girl & the Goat-ceries.

Accepting orders now on Tock, the online shop includes cheffy pantry upgrades like pickled rhubarb, kimchi, preserved lemons, farm-fresh eggs, pretzel ice cream and Bloody Mary mix—all priced between $2 and $20. There's also a selection of items from Little Goat Bakery, like bagels, sourdough bread, take-and-bake cookie dough and crumpet batter.

In addition to the lineup of one-off, grab-and-go treats, Izard also launched weekend meal kits that include enough supplies to make two dinners and two brunches. For its inaugural weekend, the menu will have Chicagoans whipping up goat belly tostadas, blueberry pancakes, farm chicken with ramps and pig face biscuits—all served with sides and additional goodies. Each meal kit feeds two people and costs $140 ($70 each), which also gives participants access to virtual cooking videos hosted by Izard herself.

Now that the Illinois "stay-at-home" order has been extended through the end of May, it's time to stock up on the good stuff.
