After growing up relishing my mother's beef stew, I stumbled onto a decadent equivalent from Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins wonderful cookbook, "The New Basics" in the early 1990s. 20 years later and it's still a favorite winter staple. My version is a bit simplified from the original, but as long as the wine and bacon are included, the results will be savored by all.
