Today we’re welcoming a special guest, Doug, to the blog! We both have our own cast iron pieces in our kitchens (Bre loves her Dutch oven, and Ree can’t get enough of her skillet), but had no idea the versatility they offer. So Doug, who’s a bit of an expert on the subject, has kindly put together this post full of tips and info all on cast iron. Thanks so much Doug!!!
Doug blogs at The Kitchen Professor, and while his degree is honorary (bestowed upon him by his wife), he has enjoyed cooking his whole life, and especially likes the science of cooking. He is partial to cast iron, barbecuing (especially with a smoker), and loves eating at as many restaurants as he can to try new things.
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you should definitely have at least one piece of cast iron. It is versatile, has health benefits, and, in my house, is an essential piece of cookware.
