The Staub CookbookOctober 12, 2018 by Jenny
The Staub Cookbook: Modern Recipes for Classic Cast Iron pays tribute to the enameled cast-iron cookware of Staub, with 100 achievable, modern recipes from top chefs and bloggers from around the country.
The beautiful photography that fills this book will surely tempt you to try the recipes as well as purchase more cookware. I had a difficult time choosing which recipes I wanted to try first as they all are appealing and perfect for weeknight dinners and lovely enough for entertaining. I ended up making the Chocolate babka rolls last weekend and the Gingery Vietnamese chicken this week. Note: Flourless chocolate orange cake lists 1 1/2 cups of flour as an ingredient. We are determining if this is a recipe title error or an ingredient error.
The rolls are now my son’s favorite thing ever. They were easy to make and came out wonderfully. Be sure to follow the instructions and use all the sugar syrup as it does add shelf life to these coiled treats. I saved them for my son who couldn’t get enough of them and even by day four they were great. My husband and I loved the chicken dish. The ginger, garlic and fish sauce in this recipe packs a punch and the marinade resulted in tender, juicy meat (even the chicken breast I tossed in with the thigh meat).
As I have mentioned before, my passion for cookbooks extends itself to other cooking related items, including French cookware. Staub cookware is sturdy, will last a lifetime and their colors are gorgeous making oven to table serving not only efficient but beautiful. Plus, Staub’s black interior prevents discoloration and every piece I own looks as new as the day I purchased it.
For this promotion Staub provided me with a 12-inch skillet in
basil (one of my favorite colors). In my photo below, you will
see how pretty the rolls presented. These rolls are perfect for
Sunday morning brunch or holiday breakfasts.
I also used this pan to sear the chicken in lieu of a grill pan. The grill pan would have made lovely markings but the dish was delicious with or without the grill marks.
