Plot Synopsis

Host Amy Thielen, a James Beard Award-winning food writer, shares recipes for lake-cabin food, as she cooks in her cabin kitchen and introduces viewers to Minnesota's and Wisconsin's locals at their rural homes or restaurants, lakeside kitchens and working farms. Each 30-minute episode of this series has its own theme, including: "Butter," as Amy visits Nordin Creamery in Westby, WI, and returns home to prepare blueberry lemon pie, new potatoes with grilled onion butter, and greens with spiced butter and fresh ricotta; "Bologna Days," with Amy taking a trip to Thielen Meats, her cousin's business, and then making Midwestern fried bologna, fried onion dip, and peppered pork loin and parmesan sandwiches on grilled flatbread; "Granny Style Chicken," as Amy roasts a local chicken granny style together with a plain, natural gravy and bread stuffing which is prepared with a medley of Swiss chard, caramelized onions, some mashed giblets cooked with sherry and lots of parsley and chives; and many more Midwestern motifs. Ten days after HEARTLAND TABLE premiered on Food Network, Amy's book, "The New Midwestern Table," was released in stores.
HEARTLAND TABLE returned for its second season on March 8, 2014 at 10am ET/PT on Food Network. In the Season 2 premiere, Amy prepared a warm meal of Midwestern Fried Chicken and Gravy With Whipped Potatoes and Swiss Chard With Honey-Roasted Garlic, followed by Indoor Buttercup S'mores made bruschetta-style with roasted marshmallows and dark chocolate.
