Hanih’s Favorite Root Vegetable Beef Stew

Everyone claims to have the “World’s Greatest Father” and I’m in the same boat. It is because of his unwavering guidance and support that I am where I am today.

Everyone claims to have the “World’s Greatest Father” and I’m in the same boat. It is because of his unwavering guidance and support that I am where I am today. He helps me build my cake structures, he always has the best advice, and when I was told that I needed to have a flu shot in order to have a certain job, he was right there saying he would get one with me.

As I sit here alone eating Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad with a Maple Chipotle Pork Loin, I’m thinking about how growing up it was always a meat and potatoes kind of supper. I personally always like to try new foods; weird, strange and “what the heck is that” foods. I’ve learned that if you don’t like a food it’s probably because it hasn’t been prepared in a way that you would like it. Don’t be afraid to step out of the norm and try something different, something new.

During my culinary school days I would bring some fancy things home and have my father try it out. He always did try, without hesitation. In honour of my Hanih whom I have made countless dinners for, here is one of his favourite crock pot soups that I make.
