Modern Cast Iron Book Launch

Mark your calendar to join Ashley L. Jones on Saturday, August 22nd from 1-3pm for a full cast-iron experience at Hearth & Soul in Tallahassee, FL celebrating the much-anticipated launch of Modern Cast Iron: The Complete Guide to Selecting, Seasoning, Cooking, and More.

Modern Cast Iron explores the countless ways that cast iron can benefit health and happiness. In addition to providing maintenance tips, advice on purchasing cast iron, and some historical context, Jones tells readers how to cook with it, too. This book features over 50 tantalizing recipes—from Layered Nachos to Peach Dutch Babies and everything in between. And while it might seem like the rich Southern food found in Modern Cast Iron isn’t compatible with your dietary restrictions, Jones proves it can be. With an allergy to gluten and processed sugar herself, Jones encourages readers to substitute ingredients as needed and even gives recommendations on how to make the most out of their dietary needs. Rather than a cookbook with strict, take-it-or-leave-it recipes, Modern Cast Iron is a guidebook intended to inspire home cooks to explore the world of cast iron on their own terms.

“Ashley’s is a much-needed work for beginners and experienced cast-iron cooks. Many of the recipes are updated classics, with Ashley lending her experience and application of ingredients to craft healthier and more enjoyable results,” says Mark H. Kelly, PR and advertising manager at Lodge Manufacturing Company.
