A note about serious food allergies

Beef stew is normally a make-do process, the results of a mish-mash of what's in your fridge and any cut of beef that's on sale that week. Cook for either a few seconds or an eternity, and ladle into a bowl. It'll do for a dinner. But this stew here will do more than… do. It'll warm, delight, satiate desires both known and unknown, and ultimately lead to a straight-up devouring. It contains that perfect combination of celery, onion, carrot, and potato, a vegetable quartet powerhouse only tamed by the subtle broth with tomato sauce and wine. Don't just make do; make delicious.
