February 18, 2015

By AARTI SEQUEIRA

A brimming pot of hearty stew is a gift in so many ways during the gray, bone-chilling days of winter. Simmering merrily away on the stove, it warms the kitchen (especially if you fire up the oven and bake a pan of cornbread to serve with it). Its aroma lifts the spirits, encouraging anyone who walks through the front door that they are finally home.

And given that it's made in a huge pot, it's an antidote to loneliness. It begs to be shared with your neighbors!
