Heartland: The Cookbook


by Judith M. Fertig

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.

Judith Fertig is a food lifestyle writer and cookbook author.  She has written for Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Saveur, Vegetarian Times, and the New York Times.  Her previous books include 'Prairie Home Cooking' and 'Prairie Home Breads', as well as six BBQ titles she coauthored with Karen Adler. She resides in Overland Park, Kansas.
