Everything you ever wanted to know about cast iron and more! That’s what you’ll get in Ashley L. Jones’ Modern Cast Iron: The Complete Guide to Selecting, Seasoning, Cooking, and More. Cast iron cooking is enjoying a surge of popularity nowadays, and with good reason; it is one of the best ways to cook for those who want foods to turn out like the foods we remember fondly from our mothers and grandmothers, as opposed to dishes made with unhealthy (and substandard) convenience items or tasteless dishes that have been overcooked in the pressure cooker or slow cooker.

This excellent cookbook is “Cast Iron 101” and should be sitting on everyone’s cookbook shelf. The recipes are excellent, they work well (at least the Peach Dutch Baby, Robby’s Quiche (yum), and Shirley’s Rice were perfect so far), and the instructions are easy-to-follow. A good cookbook should have lots of beautiful photographs, not only of the food, but also of the step-by-step information in the primer sections. This cookbook has all of those aspects and more. In fact, the early chapters with the “how to” information are well-written and worth reading thoroughly; following Jones’ advice will help you create great food.

You’ll want to pick up a good set of cast iron cookware to start cooking; the book will tell you what you need, and then when you get it, start using it, and find you love it, the book will tell you how to take care of it so that it will last several lifetimes.

Highly Recommended.
