“The best family memories I have are all related to food. I like that feeling of family and love that is generated through the act of cooking. Everyone is involved and present at the table, in the kitchen and in the dialogue.
Each food has a particular effect on us, cooking helps us to understand where the food comes from, what are we exactly eating and what that food produces on us.” – MAITENA

“Stews are made with leftovers, with what we have at hand. They are a way to learn to use what we already have in our kitchen. The quantities are added roughly. This recipe is ideal for a family meal, for warming up in winter and taking advantage of the available vegetables in each season.” – MAITENA
Previously. Leave the beans in water the night before.
1. Chop the red pepper, onion, celery, carrot and bacon. Cut the meat into small pieces and the zucchini into medium slices. The corn in small pieces.
2. Heat the bacon in a saucepan over high heat with its own juice. Add the red pepper, onion, celery and carrot. Add the meat. At the same time cook the beans in another saucepan.
3. When the beans are ready, turn them off and mix them with the meat and vegetables. Use the same water to add to the stew. Add the tomato sauce and sugar to cut the acidity. Add oregano and salt to taste.
*We all ate the stew so fast that we forgot the final photo. Sorry!
