Winter isn’t quite over yet so why not head for the kitchen and create a beef stew this weekend?Below are two beef stew recipes – one from the New World and one from the Old World. The first recipe was donated by Pearmund Cellars in Broad Run, Virginia. The second recipe is from Badia a Coltibuono, Gaiole in Chianti (SI) Italy. Enjoy.

Cheers! Kathy
