North Pole, basic cooking ideas

morebubbles | Aug 21, 2007 09:13 AM

My brother is going away to work for a year in the North Pole, leaving in a week. Since food there is limited, he's allowed to bring basic food items (pasta, olive oil, parmesan, etc) to help him make good food up there. His co-workers gave him a bread machine as a going away gift, which is a great idea.
Background note: he is not normally a cook, eats out a lot (but he'll have no choice there but to cook at home).

Which dry & canned foods would be good for him to bring?
What are some really basic recipes (using basic ingredients) that I can send him him? For instance, he needs a recipe for a simple spagetti sauce. Ideas? He is a pasta fan (& beef fan, but that will have to be limited.) I think he will have access to fish (but not too many fresh vegs/fruits at all).
I'll be able to mail him a box (food!) every other month or so, not sure of the weight limitations yet)
Any recipes and ideas, keeping limitations in mind would be great. Thanks!
