Cast iron might be the most sacred of all Southern cookware, but cooks around the world have been preparing their most cherished recipes in it for centuries. Many of the South’s best recipes are cooked in well-seasoned cast-iron skillets that are handed down from generation to generation. For making traditional buttermilk cornbread, fried chicken, cobblers, and decadent cakes, cast iron is the workhouse of kitchens everywhere. Heavy with history, each piece carries around glorious cooking traditions as readily as it sops up seasoning.
This collection of more than 65 recipes will inspire meals that connect family and friends. Whip up an Old-Fashioned Chicken Pot Pie for supper one night, then a Country Ham and Gruyére Dutch Baby the next. The kids will love Patty Melts with Secret Sauce, and Pecan Sticky Rolls will soon become your Sunday go-to. The possibilities truly are endless with the Southern Cast Iron book from Taste of the South.
