House Beautiful's new food columnist for 2013, celebrity chef Alex Hitz, puts a distinctively gourmet spin on down-home dishes. Here, he shares an elegant and festive oyster stew recipe. And don't forget to check out his new cookbook, My Beverly Hills Kitchen.
If there's any month that needs to include a bit of celebration, it's February. Don't let the winter gloom get you down. Here's an easy, elegant, festive dish that's simple to prepare, yet bursting with incredible flavor - and it takes no more than 20 minutes from start to finish. Less, really, because most of that time is just spent simmering it to concentrate the flavors. It's got "Romantic Dinner for Two" written all over it. (Not to mention, of course, that it's actually an aphrodisiac!)
To celebrate, pour a glass of Champagne, set the table, and make this stew (then, finish with some of my chocolate mousse that I'm sure you already made yesterday).
