The Heartland of America, the Midwest, is still the agricultural core of our country, its "pastoral face," where amber grain waves and the deer and a few antelope still play. Many Midwesterners are only a generation or two removed from the family farm, and their deep roots are reflected in the food they love and share. Heartland: The Cookbook, Judith Fertig's culinary ode to the Midwestern kitchen, celebrates its farm-to-table traditions, grounded in the bounty of the land and laced with the ethnic accents and pioneering spirit of the settlers. With its beautiful full-color photos of vistas and vittles, the collection also serves as a visual ode to the heart and soul of middle America. The recipes run the gastronomic gamut, from Winterberry Breakfast Pudding, Haymaker's Hash and Prairie Panzanella to Sunflower Cookie Brittle and Shaker-inspired Ohio Lemon Tart. Judith has made sure that prep techniques and cooking methods are streamlined for our time-challenged lives--Farmhouse Butter is "churned" in a Cuisinart, Rosy Rhubarb Syrup will keep, unsealed (and without canning hassles) in the fridge for a year and No-Knead Clover Honey Dough turns itself into coffee cake, yeast rolls and challah. --Book Page

At first I thought this would be a cookbook I wouldn't use because the first few recipes were for making rendered lard and smoked goat cheese, neither of which I'm likely to make. Thankfully I didn't stop there because there were so many more that I will try such as apricot cream cheese strudel, no-knead sour caraway rye bread, porch swing lemonade, old-fashioned buttermilk chocolate pound cake, rise and shine breakfast casserole, and pan roasted chicken with tarragon creamed corn.
As a cookbook, Heartland offers updated traditional recipes with an artisan twist for breakfasts, dinners, breads, preserves, desserts and drinks. In between the recipes are the stories of the people and places that define the Midwest, tributes to local farmer's markets, and quotes celebrating a simpler lifestyle. The beautiful photos of landscapes, farms, and food make it a book anyone would enjoy even if they don't cook.
I received a copy of this book for review by the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
There is the fine description of the mid west pantry, comparing the home canned goods of yesteryear with methods of today. Where the book shines is in the pictures of the mid west, the people, the food, the land.
There are not many pictures of the recipes themselves, but they are more focused on the bits and pieces of Midwest cooking.
Included recipes are; breakfast and brunch, breads, appetizers and drinks, salads and soups and desserts. Some of our family favorites have been, baked eggs with prosciutto and asiago cream, summer sangria and hunter's pie with buttery mashed potatoes.
This is a book for a cookbook collection, to use or to give as a gift to show off the heart of America
