Fire chief wins prize for stew

Boston Fire Chief Nino Tramantozzi, a 20-year veteran with the fire department, won first prize for his veal stew, in a contest of original recipes using Firehouse Jubilee tomato cocktail.

The tomato cocktail was originated 40 years ago by Tom Lally of West Redding, conn., a volunteer firefighter and his wife Helen.

The contest promoted the re-introduction of the product, now manufactured by Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc.

The firemen came up with a wide range of dishes for the contest, ranging from instant tomato soup, baked bluefish, and spiced rice, to salad and barbecued spareribs.

Here is Fire Chief Tramontozzi's prize- winning recipe for veal stew. Firechief's Delight 1/4 cup vegetable oil 3 pounds stewing veal, cubed 2 green peppers, sliced 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 2 cups tomato cocktail 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 1/2 teaspoon celery salt 1/2 teaspoon basil Salt and pepper to taste Grated Romano cheese
