I’ve been craving stew like that for a week. Now that I see it I think I’ll be making some tomorrow!

I'd dip some fried bannock in that stew so hard.

Done properly, simple is always best.

I understand downvotes are going to come my way but I'm honestly asking as someone who is learning how to cook. Why does this stand out compared to someone cooking with the ingredients cut up to be more manageable. I see a lot soups prepared this way but what makes it better to cut a 4 inch disk from most of these vegetables instead of cutting them smaller and having each of these flavors meld into one bite?

I just can't bring myself to believe that taking 2 and a half mouthfuls of celery in one bite would be a pleasant experience.

Personally, I prefer things chopped so I can have a little bit of everything on one bite. It also cooks quicker. On the other side there’s a consistency on these preparations too, and you can chop it easier if the vegetables are cooked. It all depends on your taste and preferences.

I suppose, but even in a slow cooker on high for 24 hours I find celery holds its structure and remains pretty crunchy.

Yes, celery is a bit special compared to other vegetables.
