Here at Food52, we love to make things easy for you. We’re all about the one-pot meal, the kitchen hack that will cut your prep time in half, the sheet pan dinner that dirties just one dish. People lead busy lives and we’re committed to making sure you don’t have to sacrifice a hearty, home-cooked meal to a hectic schedule—we quite literally wrote a book on the subject.

But for all our talk of efficiency, we realize that every once in a while, a laborious kitchen project is in order. We’re talking an afternoon-long, grab a good book, simmer-for-four-hours kind of meal. As consuming as it may seem set aside the time and devote yourself to a recipe that doesn’t flaunt its pithiness, but rather a commitment to cooking at its slowest. It’s in these moments that the joys of being in the kitchen emerge.
