As interest continues to grow nationwide in all things Southern food — restaurants, chefs, cookbooks — there's a "natural curiosity" about the humble yet celebrated cast-iron skillet, says Virginia Willis, the Atlanta-based authority on the region's cooking. The cast-iron skillet's virtues, and utility, can't be underestimated, in her view. "If you have a cast-iron skillet, you can make so many things in it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner," says Willis, author of Basic to Brilliant Y'all (Ten Speed, $35)

Sweet scallops touched by a dusting of curry are the centerpiece of a light and quick meal. There's no chopping or slicing. Most scallops are frozen. Instead of buying those that are defrosted at the fish counter, I buy a bag from the freezer case and keep it until I am ready to use them. They take about 5 minutes to defrost. Curry crusted scallops Makes 2 servings 12 ounces sea scallops 11/2 tablespoons curry powder 1 teaspoon canola oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup water 2 tablespoons apricot jam 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream 2 tablespoons sliced scallions 1.

The most rewarding part of teaching kids to cook is watching them progress. They not only build very practical skills in the kitchen - learning how to hold a knife, chop onions, peel carrots, sauté and roast - they also learn to keep an open mind. They learn to be willing to try something new. And they are often surprised at how much they enjoy things they never thought they would. Two weeks ago, when we were making honey mustard chicken wings with eighth graders at Roberto Clemente Middle School, Emily Gonzalez lamented: "I don't like mustard, can I have mine plain?"
