Overall, the recipes are good but do use more bacon fat and butter than I would like. Every recipe is accompanied by its nutritional information so you can decide if you need to substitute some of the ingredients or not. The hushpuppies recipe has slightly more than 50% of its calories come from fat so let the cook beware.
Definitely buy this book if your are new to cast iron cooking. If you are a pro, I might hold off as the book will probably be too introductory.
After purchasing "Cast Iron Cooking for Dummies", which addresses the care and use of cast iron cookware in addition to recipes, and in-door/out-door use suggestions, my husband has become the guru of cast iron... and has prepared many delectible food dishes.
The book has 305 pages of information, extensively covering meats - poultry and fowl - fish and seafood - stews, chowders, and gumbos - vegetables and side dishes - desserts - cornbreads - biscuits and muffins - other breads - sauces, condiments, and marinades - outdoor cooking - game animals - and fun foods.
I haven't read this book myself, but my husband did... and has amazed me, even reminded me - of how good food cooked in cast iron can taste.
This must be an amazing book.Cast Iron Cooking for Dummies
Very few recipes call for processed pre-packaged foods (mostly just a few of the desserts).
Its a good starter book for both the info and the recipes.
