PAIRED: Slow-cooked food and Lodge Cast Iron


SEATTLE, October 14, 2014 — For the first time on Paried, we’re excited to announce a giveaway sponsored by our friends at Lodge. One caller will win a 5 quart dutch oven, cook book and silicone handle holders, shipped directly to them from Lodge*! Listeners can dial (914) 803-4460 to ask your questions and for a chance to win.

There’s no time of the year quite like the Fall to prepare delicious, easy and comforting slow-cooked meals. Few cooking vessels handle the heat like cast iron and nobody does it better than Lodge Manufacturing located in South Pittsburg, Tennesse.

Lodge PR Manager, Mark Kelly, joins us live on Monday at 6:30pm EDT to talk with us about all things cast iron, the incredible story of Lodge and to take your questions as well!

Chef Mary Moran will offer some amazing slow-cooked recipes that are both tasty and easy. She’ll provide all the tips you need to ensure you have a successful meal.

CDN’s wine guru, Duane Pemberton, has two incredible wines that are a bit on the higher price points but pair extremely well with Mary’s recipes. In this show, we look at the Duckhorn 2011 Napa valley Merlot and the Long Shadows 2012 Sequel Syrah.
