Crocks & Pots
January is a great time for food in a bowl. Crocks, pots, bowls and vessels
steaming with nourishing soups and hearty stews are the perfect antidote to
the cold weather and a comforting alternative to the highfalutin presentations
of Christmas past. These one-pot wonders are easy on the wallet while
deeply satisfying in taste, coaxing out flavor with slow, hands-off cooking. The
best part is that they taste better with time, so prepare them in advance to
enjoy during the school week or tote up to the mountains for après-ski dining.
This winter, take the time to prepare something simple, warm and delicious.
