Cod & Potato stew w/ Olives & pine nuts

There are not many things that I don’t eat, but when I was younger it was a different story. I used to be freakishly picky and coming from a Latino/Italian background that was just a hindrance to my poor folks. Especially with my dads deli; so many years I missed on just  devouring everything he used to sell.  Luckily that all changed in my late teens and it was not unto I had to work my gap year at the deli that I started to really appreciate food. You can say I was a late developer (when it came to taste). The thought of eating fish and olives 20 years ago would have made me gag, how thinges have changed.
