The cookbook makes NO recommendations (in the recipes)about the different methods needed for cooking in cast iron. There is a fairly obligatory section on cleaning and seasoning cast iron at the beginning. But, that's it.
It really looks like the author had written a very nice cookbook, but her publisher said "Cookbooks are a dime a dozen. We need a HOOK. How about Cast Iron? That's all trendy now..."
Take every recipe. Remove the words "Cast Iron" from the instructions, and you'll have a perfectly nice recipe. Oh, except for the Corn Sticks. I think that must have been the recipe that gave the publisher the idea. The author actually includes a nice recipe for corn sticks, with a discussion about corn stick pans.
This book gets 2 stars, because the recipes are very nice. They just have absolutely NOTHING to do with Cast Iron. If you're lookiing for good recipes that utilize the great qualities of Cast Iron, this is NOT the book to buy.
The recipes range from the simple "monte cristo" to more complex historical fare. This book will be used over and over as more exotic cookbooks simply decorate you kitchen.
