Remember those tantalizing smells coming from Grandma's kitchen as she made her treasured, slow-cooked meals? Braises and Stews brings modern convenience and style to good old-fashioned comfort food.

Organized by main ingredient, this handy cookbook dishes up the secrets for making such savory one-pot meals as Classic Pot Roast or Pub Short Ribs. Lighter fare like Coq au Vin prepared with white wine or a Roman-inspired Spring Stew of Favas, Artichokes, and Fresh Peas will appeal to those with smaller appetites.

With color photographs to guide your creations and a recipe pairing chart to make it easy to decide what accompaniments to choose, this book will let you make fun and delicious no-fret meals!
