Peppery Tuscan Beef Stew 'Peposo'

Peppery Tuscan Beef Stew ‘Peposo’

The origin of this stew goes back to the 15th century in Florence. Infact it was cooked in the same oven used to bake the terracotta tiles for the Brunelleschi’s famous Duomo. The furnace workers (fornaciai) would simply let it all bake slowly in a corner of their furnace until it was time to eat. It is still very popular in Tuscany today. Notwithstanding the term “peposo”, which refers to the black pepper used for flavouring, it is not a spicy dish.
