Throughout this never-ending Winter (I know it’s Spring, but we still have so much snow), I’ve been making quite a few bowls. Sets of bowls, one-of-a-kind bowls, soup bowls, Japanese noodle bowls, rice bowls, pasta bowls, wheel-thrown bowls, salad bowls, hand-built bowls, baking bowls. When it comes to throwing pots on the wheel, bowls will forever be my comfort spot.
With so many new bowls swirling into my life — I’ve been making more and more soups. I just made a really wonderful light but hearty Seafood Stew — Delightful Mediterranean flavors of tomato and fennel, with hints of orange and rosemary.
The Food — Mediterranean Seafood Stew:
A lovely, light-but-satisfying Seafood dish — And quite easy to make. Starting with sauteed fennel and onion, plenty of broth and tomato, then chickpeas, white beans and zucchini slices. For the seafood, I used chunks of halibut — Halibut holds up well in this dish (even for leftovers). All wonderfully flavored with rosemary and orange zest. Great for any season — And it adds a bit of sunshine to our long-lasting Winter.
Recipe included on my Recipes Page.
The Pottery — Maasha Soup Set
I’m serving the Seafood Stew in one of my new Maasha Bowls — Stoneware, stoney slips (white and gold) with ash glaze. The bowl coordinates smartly with one of my carved-rim plates, which provides plenty of room for some wonderful toasty bread. Together, a sunny Plate-and-Bowl Set — Perfect for my chunky, full-of-good-stuff Seafood Stew.
