"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
"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
