A perpetual stew, also known as hunter's pot[1][2] or hunter's stew, is a pot into which whatever one can find is placed and cooked. The pot is never or rarely emptied all the way, and ingredients and liquid are replenished as necessary.[1][3] The concept is often a common element in descriptions of "medieval "inns. Foods prepared in a perpetual "stew have been described as being flavorful due to the manner in which the foodstuffs blend together,[4] in which the flavor may improve with age.[5]

Examples[edit]

"Medieval cooking:

Bread, water or ale, and a companaticum ('that which goes with the bread') from the cauldron, the original stockpot or "pot-au-feu that provided an ever-changing "broth enriched daily with whatever was available. The cauldron was rarely emptied out except in preparation for the meatless weeks of "Lent, so that while a "hare, "hen or "pigeon would give it a fine, meaty flavour, the taste of "salted pork or "cabbage would linger for days, even weeks.
 – Tannahill[4]

In 2015, a New York restaurant had been serving the same perpetual stew for four months.[6]

Ingredients[edit]

Various ingredients can be used in a perpetual stew, such as "root vegetables and "tubers (onion, carrot, potato, garlic, parsnip, turnip, etc.) and various meats and "game meats.[3][5]
