For as long as I can remember my grandma made a huge pot of crab cioppino, a bouillabaisse-like fish stew hailing from San Francisco, for our Christmas Eve dinner. Though Italian-American in origin, the stew has secured its place on my Anglo family's holiday table for decades. Our Christmas dinner always changes - from prime rib to ham to a roast of some sort - but Grandma Ida's cioppino, even years after her passing, will always be the Christmas Eve meal. Don your bib and serve up this classic Bay Area dish with lots of garlic bread!
