When Tony and Chef Cindy think of comfort food, two regions immediately come to mind - France and Italy. This week, we look at the French and Italian dishes that warm our bellies and our hearts. From stocks and sauces to beef bourguignon and tortellini bolognese with wine to match, here is a healthy helping of ideas to make your kitchen a happy place on a winter day.

Tony Foreman is the founder and co-owner of Baltimore's premier restaurant company, Foreman Wolf, comprised of six restaurants and two retail wine stores.
