Soups and Stews

Rich Taste that Improves with Age

Brunswick Stew is such a legendary dish that there is actually a “Stewbilee” celebrating the savory concoction in namesake Brunswick, Georgia. Whether this amalgam of barbecue and soup originated in Georgia is hard to say, but this hunters’ catch-all has a rich taste that improves with age. True Stew starts with a slow-cooked sauce; our lighter version allows the flavor of the vegetables to shine through. Variations are endless, and just about any meat and vegetable can be added to the pot—even leftover grains like quinoa and bulgur can stretch out the stew when company arrives.
