Our friends at Winnetka Farms are teaching a cast iron cookware class. I can’t say enough good things about cast iron–we ditched our Teflon years ago. Here’s the 411 on the class:
Cast Iron Cookware
How to use, maintain and restore.
We’ll start with a short history of cast iron cookware.
Techniques and use of cast iron
There will be cooking demonstrations (tastings) and discussion of the special techniques and uses of this timeless kitchen tool.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Very importantly the cleaning and maintenance of your cast iron cookware. While there are many theories regarding cleaning and maintaining cast Iron, I’ll discuss and demonstrate the system I adhere to after many years of experience.
Restoring cast iron
Either you found an old rusty pan in a thrift shop or after years of use your skillet needs more then a cleaning, you’ll learn how and what to do to restore that favorite piece in your collection.
If you have a problem piece of cast iron you can’t “fix,” bring it to class so I can make a recommendation to restore your item.
Thirty dollars per student to be paid upon arrival. Check or cash only. This class has a limit of 12 students. Light foods and beverages will be served.
