Modern cooks are realizing that grandma's had it right when she cooked with the big cast iron skillet. Cast iron has the incredible ability to spread heat quickly and evenly to create a crispy, seared surface that locks in freshness and flavor.
Author Lucy Vaserfirer knows how to work magic on cast iron, and in Not Your Mother's Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook she shows you how to prepare more than 150 recipes that are definitely not the kind of fares your grandmother cooked up. You'll get to see how to cook up vegetables (something previously thought to not be possible on cast iron); see how cast iron is the perfect vessel for cooking all types of fish and shellfish; and even how you can use your skillet for baking.
Not Your Mother's Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook is loaded with recipes that keep up with specialty diets like paleo and no meat, and even includes unique ways to bring your cast iron directly to the table as a serving vessel. So don't wait, just because your grandmother swore by her cast iron doesn't mean it's boring!
|This was a good book with a lot of information at the beginning of the book about how to take care of the cast iron. I myself have been cooking with cast iron my whole life. My father cooked with them I got his when he passed. I added those to what we already had. Different sixes liked she spoke of in the book. I will say not all of her recipes were ones that I might try but I did like her desserts and some of her breakfast ideas. I just found that this is a good book for those who want to start using cast iron. The people like myself who have been using them for close to 50 years I will try new things but Brussel sprouts still never touch any of my cooking wear I don’t how you want to cook them. Cooking s’mores in cast iron I do and have done for my children and they love it. Overall not a bad book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
