A Dutch Oven, Two Guys,and A Cookbook!


Meet the world of Dutch Oven along with Matt Pelton and Omar Alvarez. Matt is the author of From Mountaintop To Tabletop, which is no small feat (hence the title). While Mr. Alvarez is literally the World Champion in Dutch Oven Competition 2008. In Mr. Alavarez' own words..."Dian Mayfield & myself , have been competing together for 5 years. We had never cooked in a dutch Oven until 2005, in 2007 we placed fourth place at the World's, then in 2008 we won it all"


This is Matt Pelton's third book The Cast Iron Chef. Looking through the book, the evolution of the journey completely amazes me. The book begins with the science of Dutch Oven Cooking and advances to the balance between simple and complex. A wide array of dishes to experiment with- from "A Basic Roast" to "Etife". C'mon now, you know you want to cook this stuff without electricity. If you desire to be schooled on Cast Iron, please check out this book!
