This winter, The Secret History of Art encourages the cooking of slow-braised meats.

You’re welcome to have a look at a pair of articles of mine in Honest Cooking Magazine. The first is an introduction to the art of braising. The second is a recipe and cultural history of peposo, a slow-cooked dish linked to Brunelleschi’s dome.
