Cast Iron Cook-Off Eating Well and Healthy

The Cast Iron Cook-Off® is organized around the belief that

Eating Well and Healthy is important and deserves our full attention Eating well and healthily is important and deserves our full attention. We are continually learning more about healthy eating and finding that we need to adapt our mountain ancestors’ food traditions to make them more nutritious.
At the Cast Iron Cook-Off®, we are creating a New Appalachian Cuisine™ that builds on our cultural roots in terms of recipes, folklore, utensils and ingredients but that also takes into account recent findings about nutritious eating and healthy lifestyles.
