Overview

Heartland is a culinary celebration of the bounty of the Midwest, where farm-to-table isn't a movement, it's a way of life. 150 delicious recipes, stories, literary references, and photography take the reader on a journey layered with sensory experiences through the heart of American cooking.

Although much of the nation is only beginning to embrace the farm-to-table movement, residents of the Midwest have been living off the bounty of the land since the pioneer days. Judith Fertig's Heartland melds contemporary cooking with an authentic and appreciative approach to the land, presenting 150 recipes for farm-bounty fare with a modern twist. With a focus on ethnic food traditions as well as seasonal and local flavors of artisan producers, heirloom ingredients, and heritage meats, Heartland embraces the spirit and flavors of the modern farmhouse. Inside, offerings such as Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blackberry Syrup, No-Knead Caraway Rye Bread, and Brew Pub Planked Cheeses comingle with recipes such as Wild Rice Soup with Flyover Duck Confit, Heartland Daube with White Cheddar Polenta, and Italian Fig Cookies.

In addition to the mouthwatering recipes and time-proven wisdom, Heartland includes an ample mix of humorous storytelling, literary and cooking references, and lush full-color landscape and food photography that showcases the heart of American cooking from the nation's heartland.

Library Journal
Fertig (Prairie Home Cooking; Prairie Home Breads) includes 150 Midwestern recipes inspired by Amish, Scandinavian, and Czech cooking. She presents traditional meals with short cooking times, such as Farmhouse Egg Pasta, which cooks in a matter of minutes. Following chapters on breakfast, breads, and appetizers and drinks (Farm Girl Cosmo calls for vodka, rhubarb syrup, orange extract, and lime), main dishes include tasty Minnesota Wild Rice Soup (with ham, carrots, and cheese), and the desserts section features Root Beer Funnel Cakes. Recipes are written for the beginning cook. Fertig also lists websites for Midwestern food companies. Highly recommended.
