The Dutch oven may well be the perfect cooking vessel—its heavy bottom and tall sides make it ideal for everything from braising and stewing to simmering and casseroles. Soups and roasting cry out for the even, universal heat. Most warming, comforting dishes reserve the Dutch oven as a savior, and these award-winning authors are here to show you how it’s done.

In How to Cook Anything in Your Dutch Oven, you'll find recipes like:

  • Vampire-proof meatballs
  • Islander sweet and sour beef ribs
  • Ratatouille
  • Lamb vindaloo
  • One-pot ramen
  • Giant maqlubah eggplant casserole 
  • Grown-up mac and cheese
  • Choco-bacon Bundt cake
  • And way more!

In these pages exist everything from chicken soup and gumbo to mac and cheese and brownies. The dish names and ideas may be familiar, but the techniques and results will make you a Dutch oven devotee. And the flavor combinations and unique applications will also make you the star of any upcoming neighborhood potluck, to boot.
