There is a nice picture of this stalwart of cookware, the Dutch Oven, on the cover of the book. You can cook with it in or out of the house. Best of all you can cook any part of your meal using this busy pot. When you buy one for yourself the book tells you how to check out that the insides are smooth any bumps in the pot can cause hot spots and you do not want that. Also they tell you to check that lid sits flat. Now you are ready to go. Wait…not yet. This appliance is usually shipped with a wax coat on it so you have to scrub and heat it off before you can use it. Now you have seasoned your new oven and it will be a non-stick delight. There are more instruction in how to keep the oven in top shape. Now you can move onto some amazing recipes. I got stopped on page two. “Sticky Buns” sounds like a recipe I could do and I did. There are lots more bread recipes and just about anything you might want to try in your own patio or kitchen. This is one of the easiest little cookbooks to enjoy. It is spiral bound and has a clear plastic cover to protect it from the perils of pastry making.
