—The Bookwatch

"Sharon Kramis and Julie Kramis Hearne are cast iron skillet mavens. This book, Cast Iron Skillet, was a best seller in its first edition. Now, it has been revised, extended, made a little more contemporary, and friendly to those who favor veggies on their plate... And here these two experts are rolling out more cast iron gems. There’s a need to stop, look, and listen. Oh, to cook and taste and relish, too!"
—Cooking by the Book  

"Without reservation, I can say that if this is typical of how cast iron food tastes, then these authors have made a believer out of me.... It’s an amazing book which has made me a bona fide cast iron skillet user.  Our copy, already marked from ingredients – the sign of a great cookbook – is going right on the shelf in our kitchen near our cast iron pan where it belongs."
Lessons Learned from the Flock 

"Kramis and Hearne helpfully preface their recipes with a cast iron maintenance debriefing. You'll really start to warm to cast iron when you picture a puffed Dutch baby, a golden Dungeness crab quesadilla, hearty beef stew, or tender baked halibut…So dig out that cast iron cookware from the back of the cupboard—you'll find out it's more than a relic of the woodstove era."
—Northwest Palate magazine
