Book Description

In this follow-up to their successful Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook, Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne show off the many virtues of that kitchen standby, the Dutch oven. Whether the model in hand is a well-used and blackened garage-sale find, or the latest celery-green item from La Creuset, this thing really cooks. This is the pot for slow cooking, simmering pot roats and chicken stews. It works on the stovetop and in the oven.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoyingly poor editing and proofreading January 25, 2008
We sure agree with the other comment about lousy editing. All three of the recipes that we tried had steps omitted. In the Wild Mushroom Soup you reconstitute the dried mushrooms, and add their water, but never actually put the mushrooms in.

In the introduction, they stress to never run the stovetop heat above medium on an enameled dutch oven, but then the recipe says "bring to boil over medium-high heat.

There are some recipes that look good, but we'll double-check them on the Internet before trying them. We were really hoping this would be a great cookbook, but are very disappointed with it. We'll shopping for a replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice book but poor editing and proofreading. January 20, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While the recipes in this book are very nice I found some errors. For example, the Roasted Beet soup doesn't indicate at which point you are to add the diced, roasted beets to the soup. An experienced cook could figure this out well enough but an omission of this magnitude does not speak well of the publisher. I emailed customer service at the publisher and never received a response. Perhaps I will research the authors and communicate with them.

3.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY Dutch Oven Cookbook February 14, 2009
"The Dutch Oven Cookbook: Recipes for the Best Pot in Your Kitchen" is one of only three dutch oven cookbooks I am aware of on Amazon that provides recipes for indoor cooking with dutch ovens. I found this cookbook locally after recently buying my first cast iron dutch oven. Along with many promising recipes come a number of shortcomings, which I didn't fully appreciate until I got the book home.

First off, although the author initially writes that they use both cast iron and enameled cast iron, she goes on later in the book to recommend enameled cast iron, and, indeed, the care instructions at the beginning of the book are geared toward that preference too. Consequently, this book will not replace the likes of "Cast Iron Cooking for Dummies", a popular title that I was hoping to bypass due to its lack of applicable recipes for a dutch oven (most are geared toward a skillet, and the few dutch oven recipes that appear in that book are for the 7 quart size). Secondly, while the capacities called for in the recipes that appear in "The Dutch Oven Cookbook" range from 2-quarts to 5.5-quarts, most are geared toward a 5.5-quart dutch oven. I have two issues with this: First, I only own one dutch oven, not the variety of sizes called for in this cookbook. Secondly, the dutch oven I own is cast iron of the non-enameled type and because it is built by Lodge it is an even 5-quarts, with the next size being the 7-quart size (and there are no 7-quart recipes in this book).

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Cookbooks March 8, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best cookbooks that I have ever purchased. The recipes are simple to follow and do not call for exotic ingredients. The recipes we tried have all come out excellent and I wouldn't adjust any of the ingredients, cooking times or amounts. Well worth the money! It looks like it will get plenty of use in our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great cookbook! February 18, 2008
There is a recipe in this book for just about every occasion. Most recipes are pretty simple with easily found ingredients. I've used several already (delicious!!) and would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys cooking in a dutch oven. If you don't have a dutch oven...I suggest you buy one so you don't miss out on one of the best pots you can have in your kitchen! All of the recipes are written for a 5 1/2 qt., so for those of you who are shopping for a good all around size, a 5 1/2 would be a good choice. Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cover, but . . . September 13, 2009
The photographer who created the cover should win a prize . . . It's beautiful . . . the recipes not so much. I have returned this book because the recipes were simply not my cup of tea. When I buy a new cookbook, the first thing I do is page through every page, attaching "flags" to those recipes that sound good to me. There were no flags when I finished going through this book! Although less classy looking, I would recommend instead "Cooking the Dutch Oven Way" by Woody Woodruff. .Cooking the Dutch Oven Way Although the cover gives the impression that it is meant strictly for outdoor cooking, the recipes all include oven temperatures and can be made in your kitchen. and what's more, the ingredients are simple items you'll find at your local grocery store or in your cupboard. You won't have to be heading for a specialty market to find what you need. . . and the recipes sound yummy. I can's wait to try them . . . and it won't be hard - I have almost every page flagged!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's ok.... but September 9, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dutch Ovens are superior for their ability to transform common food into something exquisite. This book has a few recipes that exploit on that quality, but, for the most part, the recipes in this book could be made in any pot in the kitchen.
The ones I tried were very good, however I was hoping for more that would make the most out of what a Dutch Oven does best.
