"If Lenny Russo didn't exist, we'd have to invent him...." - Lynne Rossetto Kasper

Heartland is the story of an exceptional American restaurant and the passionate, politically active chef behind it. Inspired by the undersung bounty of the Great Midwest, Chef Lenny Russo celebrates family farms, native ingredients, and local culinary traditions page after page—just as he does at his signature restaurant. The 100 beautiful, earthy recipes are drawn from the lakes, fields, farms, and orchards of Russo's adopted homeland. They include Midwestern Cassoulet, Sweet Corn-Black Barley Cakes, Chocolate-Sorghum Custard Tart, Freshwater Bouillabaisse, Wild Rice Salad with Baby Kale and Blue Cheese, Fennel-Cured Whitefish with Danish Brown Bread Salad, and dozens more.

Heartland features photography by Tom Thulen and fine art by the Ojibwe mid-century artist George Morrison.
