What should be first in the latest Saveur 100, a yearly list of favorite things, than a Lodge cast iron Dutch oven with a flat, lipped lid?
It's one of several items on the list for cooking in the fireplace. Great concept, hmm? I'm further tempted by this fireplace grill (#58 on the Saveau 100). And this coming just after we figured out that the second chimney on the house must be for a fireplace that used to be in the kitchen, but is now covered up with plaster and tile. Pity. I wonder what Foodgoat would think of opening up the wall and restoring the kitchen hearth?
Fortunately, now we have a big pot of stew as incentive for fixing up the living room fireplace.
