I am so glad you had fresh produce at your disposal for this round. In hindsight, I should have saved this book for the spring and summer so we all could have played around with the flower symbolism. (There's no flowers to be had here...)

This stew sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing it!

Simona Carini

Even here the flower vendors are taking a break from the farmers' markets, but the gardens are starting to show colors, plus the magnolias (dignity) are in full bloom. Thank you, Debra: the stew is my current favorite weekday meal :)

Wendy Klik

Using fresh produce from the Farmer's market is perfect for this novel. I love this recipe.


Your bean and vegetable stew sounds absolutely delicious. I wish we had your variety of beans here. Which do you consider the best for stewing like this?


All of my favorite ingredients in one stew--it looks absolutely delicious and perfect for the book. Thank you for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week too. ;-)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Wendy :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia :) I'd try borlotti (cranberry beans). They go particularly well with tomatoes.

Simona Carini

My pleasure, as always, Deb :)

Camilla Mann

This looks delicious and I can't wait to try it! We love anything fennel though my youngest has decided that he doesn't care for mushrooms anymore. What!?? I hope this is a phase.

Simona Carini

Thank you Camilla. I hope so too: mushrooms are so good :)
