Easter Tips and Techniques

Starting the roast at a high heat forms a deep brown crust; finishing it at a lower temperature cooks the roast slowly for tender results.
A cast iron roasting pan stands up to the initial high-heat sear, and transitions easily to stovetop use for making the red wine sauce.
Roast beef is an amazing showpiece, and a nice change from carved turkey or ham. And it’s great for entertaining, since the roast can rest up to 45 minutes and still retain its heat.

Easter Horseradish Risotto

NEW! Sauteuse

The wide, flat base of the cast iron sauteuse is perfect for toasting the rice and then absorbing the liquid. The curved edges allow for easier stirring and shaking to develop the starch in the rice. Buy Now

Cast iron is an excellent material for cooking risotto: It maintains a consistent temperature so you don’t have to constantly adjust the heat. The thick bottom helps prevent scorching.
