Q: I am in a long-distance relationship and will soon be visiting my boyfriend for a week! He doesn’t cook very much and has very limited kitchen supplies. I want to cook for him while I’m there, but expect him to have only the most basic of tools and ingredients.

What are some good recipes that are both impressive and don’t require stocking an entire pantry?
