PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT CHOOSING THE RIGHT CAST IRON Whether seasoned or enamel-coated, we love to use any kind of cast iron in our kitchen. While both finishes are versatile, each has its strengths. We turn to seasoned skillets for their sturdy, nonstick properties. Black iron is our go-to for perennial favorites like steaks, cornbread, and biscuits. Enameled pans shine when cooking more acidic or liquid-heavy recipes like tomato-based sauces and chilis or long-cooking soups, stews, and braises that can threaten all the hard work put into building up the seasoning on other pans. So next time you reach for your cast iron, let your cravings help decide which variety works best for your needs. SEASONED OR ENAMEL-COATED? TASTES & TOOLS 1.

After taking second place at the 2018 National Cornbread Festival Cook-Off, Lidia Haddadian returned to South Pittsburg, Tennessee, in 2019 with this cast iron-cooked creation and took home the top prize, adding to her more than 40 food competition victories. Inspiration for this recipe struck Lidia during her first encounter with Lodge’s cast-iron baking pan during the 2018 festival. The California-based chef tested and tweaked her blend of cornmeal and yeast several times to perfect the crispy crust that holds the Cajun-inspired toppings. Give the recipe a go to taste why her pizza achieved blue-ribbon status, and visit for more festival recipes.
