Notes about Recipes in this book

  • One-day buttermilk rye

    • emiliang on December 27, 2013

      The buttermilk and long rising times give this bread some good complexity. Overall, this is a better than average whole grain bread, but doesn't approach the flavor of a slowly fermented, sourdough based recipe. It keeps very well, though, for 3-4 days. Baking time was shorter than indicated in the recipe.

  • Cracker-crust pizza

    • emiliang on December 29, 2013

      This is the thin, crackly crust pizza you can find throughout the Midwest. Very easy to prepare and very good.

  • Double chicken soup with rolled noodles

    • Summerlandsky on March 28, 2014

      I love this chicken noodle soup recipe. It's the perfect way to use our butchered farm chickens without using store broth and the homemade noodles are easy and delicious. I usually double the noodles and leave all the chicken meat in.

  • Johnson family Swedish pancakes

    • emiliang on April 04, 2014

      Closer to a crepe than other Swedish pancake recipes, but very good. Best accompaniment is some lingonberry, currant, or other berry jam, thinned with a bit of water and warmed to room temperature.

  • Serious Eats

    So while Thielen's book may not include the most elegant roast or trendiest Brussels sprout preparation, it does offer...hearty, warming food that pleases—the heartland at its best.

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    It’s not every dish that can be spiffed up, repointed, and made new again... But this ardent homage should put to rest some misconceptions and ignite new passion for the heartland’s culinary heritage.

Publishers Text

“The Midwest is rising,” writes Minnesota native Amy Thielen—and her engaging, keenly American debut cookbook, with 200 recipes that herald a revival in heartland cuisine, is delicious proof.

Amy Thielen grew up in rural northern Minnesota, waiting in lines for potluck buffets amid loops of smoked sausages from her uncle’s meat market and in the company of women who could put up jelly without a recipe. She spent years cooking in some of New York City’s best restaurants, but it took moving home in 2008 for her to rediscover the wealth and diversity of the Midwestern table, and to witness its reinvention.

The New Midwestern Table
reveals all that she’s come to love—and learn—about the foods of her native Midwest, through updated classic recipes and numerous encounters with spirited home cooks and some of the region’s most passionate food producers. With 150 color photographs capturing these fresh-from-the-land dishes and the striking beauty of the terrain, this cookbook will cause any home cook to fall in love with the captivating flavors of the American heartland.
