Tortuga has been exploring the Pacific Northwest through the winter and now into spring. It has been a delightful and busy time – and it’s time to bring this picture book up to date!
First, however … it’s time to diet!
But … 20 lbs. (9 kg) made up of a couple of skillets (nice to serve “hot off the flames” steaks, etc.); a pot for soups; a frying pan, cover … and it holds the heat ever so nicely.
Losing 20 pounds is always good! The question is: can it live up to the awesome reputation and experience of cast iron cooking? Can it cook up breakfast, soups, stir fry, steaks, and everything else. Is it a miracle device replacing all those special purpose and weighty things?? Let’s see!
Without a lot of repetitive pictures, Tortuga can assure all that this wok is indeed a very special tool. Of course it handles stir-fry easily … an area where regular cast iron pots and pans struggled.
The decision is: lose the 20 pounds!
