Renaissance Recipes, Winter Braising, Brunelleschi’s Dome

This winter, The Secret History of Art encourages the cooking of slow-braised meats.  Not only are these dishes easy to make, they are delicious and warming and, best of all, have a rich cultural history behind them.  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.
