Wanted: Cast iron cooking classes or competitions

Kenneth Porter has a couple of cast iron pots.

“I make a Creole pork stew. I use the smaller one for that,” said the Spokane Valley home cook. “The bigger one I use to cook up tomato mac and cheese.”

But he wants to hone his cast iron cooking skills and try out new recipes.

So he's wondering if anyone offers cast iron cooking classes in the Spokane area. He also wants to know if there are any local cast iron cooking competitions.

At 80, he doesn't want to compete, but he thinks it would be fun to watch.

“It'd keep me off the street,” he said, with a laugh.

If you know of a cast iron cooking class or competition, or plan to hold one soon, let Too Many Cooks know or send an email to Spokesman-Review Food editor Adriana Janovich at or (509) 459-5446.
