Overview

The tradition of stew-making is as old as the invention of the first pot, so it is only natural that a piping-hot, rib-sticking stew is comforting in a very primal sort of way. In The Best Stews in the World, Cliff Wright takes cooks on a culinary voyage around the world to discover the favorite comfort foods of nearly 50 countries. These 300 recipes are the real deal: classic home food complete with culinary pedigrees. Here you can find authentic versions of Swedish Meatball Stew, Ossobuco alla Milanese, African Groundnut Stew, Irish Stew, Cuban Ropa Vieja, Coq au Vin, Maine Lobster Stew, Spicy Indian Vegetable Stew, and much more. The Best Stews in the World is organized by each recipe's predominant ingredient: beef; veal; pork; lamb; poultry, goat, and rabbit; mixed meats; fish and shellfish; and vegetables. The recipes are easy to follow, the techniques are straightforward, the narrative is rich with the history and tradition of each stew, and, most important, the rewards are plentiful and satisfying.
