Portuguese Fish Stew - Video
This Portuguese fish stew is normally made in a cataplana which is a Moorish designed copper domed dish. I have made mine in a thermal cooker which like the cataplana keeps the flavours in so they develop their intensity while cooking. The Western Algarve style cooking includes potatoes, firm white seasonal fish, seafood, peppers and a hint of chili. Once served from the thermal cooker all that is needed is a spoon and some crusty bread to mop round the bowl.

A Bowl Full of Game Stew
At this time of the year you can't beat a hearty stew. This simple mixed game stew is just the thing to eat with your friends on a cold autumn evening. I like to serve with some crusty bread to mop up the rick gravy this stew makes after the long slow thermal cooking. Happy thermal cooking, Mr D
