a berry good season

Summer has always been my favorite season—especially the first few months when temperatures aren’t as punishing. Fruits are sweeter, vegetables are brighter, and the garden is the place to be. Come late-June, you’ll find me plucking pound after pound of plump, juicy blueberries at my favorite u-pick farm until my freezer is stocked for making batches of jam and baking sweet treats like our cover star Blueberry Buckle (page 93). I just love it.We have lots more features, though, that are sure to bring fun to your kitchen lineup.

field company 12-inch skillet

The skillets that come out of this family-owned foundry are staples in any modern cast iron enthusiast’s collection. The Field Company got its start after two brothers noticed that the well-used antique skillets they inherited from their grandmother were of higher quality than their modern pans. They set off to create functional and stylish cast-iron pieces using the long-lost techniques of forgotten foundries. Today, the company has mastered their unique casting method and has expanded their product line with this smooth-to-the-touch and surprisingly lightweight 12-inch skillet. With a sturdy handle and plenty of room, this skillet is the perfect size to handle everything from roasted chicken fit for company to a family-size one-pan weeknight supper. $215; fieldcompany.com…

If you ask acclaimed Alabama chef David Bancroft, there’s never been a time when he didn’t love to eat. Since he was raised in a food-loving family, he was hooked from the start. His grandfather was a cattleman, fish farmer, peanut farmer, cotton gin owner, and avid gardener; his mother and grandmother were both amazing cooks, and he was a child with an infectious curiosity for good-tasting food.“My grandfather was a part of all of the major crops in Alabama,” David remembers. “I was accustomed to lots of fresh vegetables and meals around a long family table, but the best thing my mother did was hot water cornbread—little crispy, crunchy cornbread pancakes she fried in a cast-iron skillet.
