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.

Editorial Reviews

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.

    Loving the Heartland!

    I was born and raised in the big city, but I now live in a small town in a rural area and it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I like to think of myself as a country person now and I am so honored to do so. Heartland: The Cookbook, written by Judith Fertig, is a large coffee table style book that is overflowing with country recipes, as well as literary quotes and real life facts that celebrate the appeal of living the wonderful country life.

    Heartland: The Cookbook starts with breakfast and leads right up to dessert, frequently stating what state or region of the Midwest that the recipe is popular in, which was a nice way to learn a little more about the area. Many of the recipes are popular throughout the entire Heartland and range from classic dishes to kicked up, modern versions of farm fare. Sunflowers, which are very commonly seen in growing in Kansas, are a main ingredient in Sunflower Cookie Brittle, a flat cookie that is pressed in a pan and baked, then broken into pieces like peanut brittle, and my kids love it for an after school snack! They also had a recipe for something that I’ve never made, but have been dying to try — a Fresh Pumpkin Pie. I guess I’ll have to wait until Fall and hope I get some good pumpkins this year!

    More Than a Cookbook

    I truly enjoyed reading this book because it was more than a collection of recipes. Heartland is a celebration of the Midwest with beautiful photos, stories, facts, and quotes that pay tribute to not only the food but the land and people as well.

    At first I thought this would be a cookbook I wouldn't use because the first few recipes were for making rendered lard and smoked goat cheese, neither of which I'm likely to make. Thankfully I didn't stop there because there were so many more that I will try such as apricot cream cheese strudel, no-knead sour caraway rye bread, porch swing lemonade, old-fashioned buttermilk chocolate pound cake, rise and shine breakfast casserole, and pan roasted chicken with tarragon creamed corn.

    As a cookbook, Heartland offers updated traditional recipes with an artisan twist for breakfasts, dinners, breads, preserves, desserts and drinks. In between the recipes are the stories of the people and places that define the Midwest, tributes to local farmer's markets, and quotes celebrating a simpler lifestyle. The beautiful photos of landscapes, farms, and food make it a book anyone would enjoy even if they don't cook.

    I received a copy of this book for review by the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
