Booklist Review

Stews make an ideal wintertime meal. Simple versions of beef or chicken can express affection to a gathered family, while more complex stews based on veal or seafood work as grand centerpieces for the most sophisticated parties. In Simple One-Pot Stews,0 Robbins approaches stews from just about every conceivable angle, using fish, shellfish, chicken, and virtually every meat save game. Her four season-by-season vegetable stews show remarkable finesse and attention to fresh flavors. Beef stews reach as far asapan for inspiration. Robbins' stews also adapt to the energy-saving slow cooker, but those violate the one-pot paradigm and require some stove-top work for essential browning of meats. --Mark Knoblauch Copyright 2004 Booklist
