|Enjoy with a glass of red wine and some warm bread|
I think we can all agree that comfort food is something we often reach for in the winter. Whether it is a cold dreary rainy day or a day of blustery winter winds and snow, certain foods just hit the spot. The other day, I was in the mood to sit in front of a crackling fire with a bowl full of hot stew and a glass of red wine. My cooking mind immediately went to work on a tasty, healthy solution.
The challenge with comfort food is that they are often associated with cream sauces, pasta, fatty ribs stewing in the oven all day in a rich sauce, and something to do with mashed potatoes. Since we don’t like to eat that way, I am constantly refining our definition of comfort food. I was craving seafood and thought of a fish chowder of sorts. But how to make fish go with red wine?
