Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook - Cast Iron Nation


The long-awaited release of Lodge Cast Iron Nation: Great American Cooking from Coast to Coast is finally here!

Cast Iron Nation reveals that cast iron is so much more than cornbread’s best friend and the perfect tool for frying chicken. This versatile cookware is the base for 175 easy-to-use recipes that represent a cross-section of American regional cuisine, including Pan Fried Rocky Mountain Trout from the West, Toasted Chile-Cumin Marinated Skirt Steak Tacos from the Southwest, Smoked Salmon & Scallion Frittata from the Northeast, Country Ham & Fig Pizza from the South – and even a Hawaiian-Style Beef Stew.

The book includes forewards and special introductions by chefs John Currence and Elizabeth Karmel, and highlights additional recipes from notable chefs like, Lidia Bastianich, John Besh, Mark Bittman and Sean Brock. Additional contributors include other cast iron enthusiasts such as writers Hunter Lewis, blogger Susan Benton and cookbook author Jennifer Chandler, as well as members of the Lodge family. The chapters, packed with everything from egg dishes and French toast, soups and stews, casseroles and desserts, also offer step-by-step cooking sidebars and heartfelt stories.

Compiled and edited by Pam Hoenig and published by Oxmoor House, Cast Iron Nation is now available at many retailers and e-commerce sites.
