About the Book:
Beloved by home cooks and professionals alike, the cast-iron skillet is one of the most versatile and cost-effective pieces of equipment in your kitchen. Perfect for every meal of the day, it can be used to cook eggs, sear steaks, roast whole dinners, and serve dessert warm from the oven.
Unlike artificially nonstick pans that contain harmful chemicals, the cast-iron pan is naturally nonstick. So go ahead and let the pan work its magic to sear, sizzle, roast, fry, and caramelize — introducing big and bold restaurant-quality flavors into your one-pan meals.
