Celebrated cookbook author and beloved teacher Lydie Marshall presents 120 comforting, simple, and delicious recipes for succulent one-dish meals in this natural follow-up to her acclaimed Soup of the Day.

In this latest collection, Lydie focuses on fish, poultry, meat, and vegetables that have been simmered in aromatic broths and sauces. Unparalleled in flavor, these dishes resonate with the coziness of family suppers, hearth, and home. Although these meals epitomize the pleasures of comfort food, the recipes are simple and direct, often requiring just one pot. These make-ahead dishes actually improve with time and are perfect for busy home cooks who want maximum flavor with minimal fuss. Featuring Provencal Beef Stew, which will warm you on the coldest winter day, or a light and satisfying Zucchini and Tomato Custard, featuring the flavors of late summer, Slow-Cooked Comfort is a year-round source of delight.
