Crash Course in Cast Iron Cooking

Herbs and Their Uses 101

Have you heard that food cooked in cast iron tastes better than using other materials? Do you have a new or heirloom cast iron skillet in your kitchen cabinet but aren’t sure how or what to cook in it? Unsure how to clean, season, or store your cast iron cookware? This class will touch on these topics, do’s and don’t for using cast iron, and offer tried and true recipes from our instructor, Amy Currence.

Amy has been preparing healthy homemade dishes in cast iron since she was a small child, learning from her mom's culinary skills. She'll share how a single cast iron piece can aid a simplistic lifestyle - from omelets to desserts, stove tops to oven, and even campfire to picnic table. You’ll be experimenting with this healthful sustainable cookware in no time!
