Winter’s here, and it’s time for hot, hearty soups and stews. On a cold day or for a Sunday night super, this Greek-accented recipe is a great choice!
It goes well with a sourdough bread. And with this tomato-based fish stew, try a Chablis, a warm, robust red wine like Cote Rotie, or a dry, white wine like Pouilly-Fumé.
