In one of the most dramatic cooking adventures in the Torah, Isaac asks his son Esau to go to the field, hunt game and prepare a meal prior to receiving his firstborn blessing.   Rebecca intercedes and orchestrates a clever ruse, asking Jacob to bring a lamb from their flock so she can prepare the meal for Isaac.  Jacob would wear the clothes of Isaac and receive the blessing in place of his brother.  If you are trying to imagine a stew so delicious that Isaac would willingly bestow his blessing on Jacob before Esau’s arrival, this Autumn Lamb Stew would be it!
