Now, it has been revised, extended, made a little more contemporary, and friendly to those who favor veggies on their plate... And here these two experts are rolling out more cast iron gems. There's a need to stop, look, and listen. Oh, to cook and taste and relish, too!"
--Cooking by the Book

 

"Without reservation, I can say that if this is typical of how cast iron food tastes, then these authors have made a believer out of me.... It's an amazing book which has made me a bona fide cast iron skillet user. Our copy, already marked from ingredients - the sign of a great cookbook - is going right on the shelf in our kitchen near our cast iron pan where it belongs."
--Lessons Learned from the Flock

 

"Kramis and Hearne helpfully preface their recipes with a cast iron maintenance debriefing. You'll really start to warm to cast iron when you picture a puffed Dutch baby, a golden Dungeness crab quesadilla, hearty beef stew, or tender baked halibut...So dig out that cast iron cookware from the back of the cupboard--you'll find out it's more than a relic of the woodstove era."
--Northwest Palate magazine
