I love a stew winter or summer, I wouldn’t have one on a really hot steamy day but here in the UK our summers can be a bit miserable so there are many chances to have a hot warming stew even in the summer months.
I am writing this at the end of March a few days into spring, it is very cold and we have had a lot of snow, so stews all the year round here are not unusual.
I had a Romanian friend who occasionally cooked me a chicken stew just like her mother cooked back in her home town of Deva. Of course Romanians don't use carrots in cooking and they would normally section a whole chicken, so this is my interpretation.
I loved it so I’m going to share it with you.
