My list of ingredients included butter, olive oil, garlic, leeks, celery, bell pepper, salt, parsnips, rutabaga, black peppercorns (way too much -- probably need to go for freshly ground pepper, anyway), red pepper flake (not enough), Welsh ESB (probably need more), lump crabmeat, andouille sausage, mushrooms (possibly irrelevant), chicken stock (probably irrelevant -- beer or water would do as well), fresh parsley (a real winner), cream, crispy bacon bits.
Also, I cooked the stew inside a pumpkin shell seasoned with allspice, which retarded the whole cooking a bit. Probably should have just chunked some fresh pumpkin and thrown it in the stew -- perhaps replacing some of the rutabaga, if space in the pot is an issue. May have to try to find another spice or two -- bay leaves, for sure, don't know what else.
Anyway, I'm going to make it again, and if I get it juussst right, I'll be posting the final recipe here for the applause of the galleries.
