Amy Thielen on Heartland Table

America’s middle may be known for its lush green pastures and rolling hills, but it’s also home to some of the most comforting and creative food in the country, thanks to its focus on farming and rural, rustic living. On her all-new upcoming series, Heartland Table (Saturday, Sept. 14 at 10:30am/9:30c), Amy Thielen, a born-and-raised Minnesotan, is on a mission to introduce her Midwest to viewers through her signature takes on the classic dishes of the area.

Amy is a chef and a former restaurant cook who enjoyed a stint in some of New York City’s most revered eateries, but after years in the Big Apple, she moved home to Minnesota with her husband to raise their family. On Heartland Table, she’ll showcase some of her region’s most comforting and authentic dishes using only the freshest goods available, like straight-from-the-garden greens, locally sourced eggs and meat, and neighborhood produce. Now a cookbook author and blogger, Amy knows what it takes to turn out the hearty, family-focused food for which the heartland is famous, and she’ll show audiences how deliciously simple it is to make these meals in their homes, no matter which part of the country they’re in.

When she’s not cooking in her log cabin, Amy will be scouring the area to find the local businesses and meet the purveyors that specialize in producing some of the Midwest’s most traditional eats and drinks, like just-made butter and microbrews. She’ll learn the secrets of their trade and even taste some of their signature products while giving viewers an insider’s look at the hows and wheres of these goods.

Don’t miss the premiere of Heartland Table on Saturday, September 14 at 10:30am/9:30c.

    I wish the show was back on Saturday mornings! I miss it!! I hope new shows are coming! I made the peppered Pork, Delicious!!!

    I was hooked on Pioneer Woman until Heartland Kitchen came along. I love a show where the ingredients come from your garden and are ALL HOME MADE.
    A show about how to be more self sufficient and how to be frugal in the kitchen would be a good idea. It seems all you give us is competition shows. Thats boring.

    The enormous Canadians tuning in the Super Bowl on Sunday night are usually more willing to absorb the luxurious tv advertisements compared to the football sport in itself, a fresh survey implies.
    That doesn’t mean, however, that probable ad-watchers will likely be turning on their tv screens to do so. Of the people who wish to look at the big-budget commercials which may have develop into a hallmark of the event, the study discovered 45 per cent want to view them on the internet instead of at the time of the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
