Prized for its perfect heat distribution and outstanding thermal efficiency, cast iron represents chef-cred status for today's cooking enthusiasts. Cast iron is perhaps best known as the "natural non-stick" alternative to commercial non-stick cookware. Some non-stick coatings may emit toxic chemicals, while cast iron offers potential health benefits such as supplementing dietary iron intake.
Inside this book, you'll learn how to use a Dutch oven in your kitchen or over hot coals to bake breads and desserts, simmer soups, or roast meats and vegetables! You'll also find an informative foreword written by Pat Sloan (author of Log Cabin Dutch Oven) that briefly delves into the interesting history of cast iron cookware.
With flavorful meal ideas and crisp color photography, Dutch Oven & Cast Iron Cooking, Revised & Expanded Third Edition, offers complete easy-to-follow instructions for using the classic Dutch oven to cook mouthwatering food that practically slides out of the pan. Make delicious pot pies, stews, sandwiches, casseroles—and even cakes, biscuits, and brownies!
More than 125 recipes are provided to serve up tasty dishes everyone will love, from breakfast and breads to dinners, side dishes, and desserts. Also included are valuable insights on seasoning, cleaning, drying, and storing your cast iron cookware, plus the pros and cons of bare cast iron versus cast iron with an enamel coating. You'll even find 22 camping hacks, tips, and tricks, as well as know exactly what to bring on your next outdoor adventure with a helpful packing checklist!
Cast iron skillets, Dutch ovens, and griddles are so durable, they can be passed down through generations of cooks. Versatile enough to go from stovetop to oven, cast iron works equally well on grills and over campfires—and cleanup is a breeze.

Whether you're at home, in the wilderness, staying in a cabin or lodge, or indulging in some well-deserved glamping, cast iron has got your meals covered!
Perfect for any camping or cooking enthusiast, most of the recipes in this comprehensive cookbook include instructions for both indoor and outdoor cooking methods, including recipes especially for pie irons, so you can expect great results no matter how—or where—you're cooking!
