Editorial Reviews

Review

"With this book Beth Dooley has squelched that old, out-of-touch snobbery that claimed, ‘There's no Food there.’ Food is alive and thriving here in the upper Midwest in more ways than most of us can count, and Beth has captured it all on these pages. So if you want to revel in the seasons and in the ingenuity and brilliance of local artisanship, sit back and start reading—then head for the kitchen." —Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of public radio's national food show The Splendid Table® from American Public Media




"The Northern Heartland Kitchen is a truly impressive book—thorough, smart, and enticing on so many levels. Beth Dooley has convinced me that there is indeed a delicious regional cuisine in the Northern Heartland, one informed by those farmers and crafters who fuel the new culinary world everywhere." —Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America's Farmers’ Markets




"Beth Dooley just the wrote the book I wish I had written. The Northern Heartland Kitchen is more than just a cookbook.  It is a food literacy manual that guides the reader through the diversity of the seasons with well chosen and easy to follow recipes that draw on the very best our region has to offer. While doing so, she also educates us in many of today’s most vital issues as they relate to food, nutrition, the environment, the economy and our future as omnivores in a shrinking world dominated by industrial agriculture. This book doesn’t just reflect the deep seated pride of place that all of us in the Northern Heartland feel; it revels in it." —Lenny Russo, Executive Chef, Heartland


"Happily, what The Northern Heartland Kitchen does best is provide many tasty answers to the question, What to do with all these vegetables—or as winter would have it—the lack thereof? Organized by the seasons, the book takes locavores from autumn’s cabbage, apples, and greens to winter’s hearty squash and potatoes, spring’s bright sorrel and herbs, and ?nally, as Dooley says, summer’s ‘conspiracy of ripeness.’ Along the way, it makes ample use of local meat and dairy and replaces imported olive oil and other ingredients with goods produced closer to home." —The Heavy Table

I made Dooley's chestnut soup for Christmas and it generated more excitement than the pies and homemade chocolate ice cream! The book is so intimate, it's like Beth is right there in the kitchen teaching me.

This cookbook is focused on regional, locally-sourced cooking in Minnesota and surrounding states. For each recipe, the ingredients can found in the Northern Midwest in each appropriate season, i.e. several rhubarb recipes for spring. In the introduction for each recipe, she suggests complementary recipes for complete meal planning.

So far, I have made five of the recipes: Prosciutto-wrapped tilapia with sage, Beer-braised pork chops with pears (although I used the suggested red wine variation), Silky chard, Pork tenderloin with lemon and herbs, and Green bean, corn, and fennel saute. All were excellent tasting, and Dooley's directions were easy to follow.

The only negative about this cookbook is that it doesn't have any pictures. (I like pictures to inspire me ... now I have to rely on my imagination.)

This is a great book to own if you live in the upper midwest. Beth Dooley does a great job in providing and dividing recipes that belong into their own rightful season (rather than lumped together and taken for granted the mixed-blessing of having produce available to us year round.

I have tried a number of the recipes. Some I really like and some I'm a bit disappointed in simply by the choice of ingredients used. I understand the uses of refined flours and sugars, but for the involvement B. Dooley has in the local and sustainable food movement, it would be much more exciting to see more creativity in the recipes that would promote more sustainable grain or sweetener-based "crops."

Overall, a very handy reference guide that you can also make ingredient replacements to make it work for you!
