"There's no one better to offer instruction on how to use the most essential, versatile item in your kitchen." - Grub Street

The cast-iron skillet has been a humble workhorse used for generations to crisp bacon perfectly and fry chicken; now use it to turn out tender scones, cakes, and breads. A curious home cook, Charlotte Druckman has figured out every trick for this versatile pan. Heat the skillet for a few minutes, add some butter to sizzle, and you can brown cheesy arepas, get a crunchy crust on a kimchi-topped hoecake, or blister naan right on the stovetop. Or preheat the pan in the oven and you're ready to bake no-knead pizza, the gooiest sticky buns, and even a cornflake-milk layer cake.

With beautiful photographs, tips for seasoning cast iron, and info on collecting vintage pieces, this book makes cooking so much fun that your skillet will never see the cupboard.

I'm a sucker for a recipe book with exciting color photos and especially when each recipe is accompanied by a short story about where it came from or who eats it. I was excited to get this book and try some recipes. Sadly, I tried 10 recipes and none was worth keeping. Some were terrible. The only reasonable one was for arepas (using special corn flour which I was able to get downtown). Whereas I was expecting some exciting spices because many of the recipes were for South American or Mediterranean, I found the food to be uniformly bland. At the end of the experience, my kids said "Get rid of that book dad" so that is how it ended.
