Heartland Table

Heartland Table

While waiting to see images from the Céline FW15 collection, I was watching the Food Network–my Sunday mornings with Ina Garten. Following Ina was a show I’d never seen, Heartland Table with chef Amy Thielen. Young, cool, and after having spent nearly a decade cooking under David Bouley, Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the northern Minnesota native moved home with her husband and 1-year-old son into a cabin on a dirt road. I’m obsessed with Thielen’s local and seasonal approach to food and have ordered her cookbook.

  • Thanks for the tip, Preston! I still adore Ina, but the Food Network just isn’t what it used to be. I’ll have to check Amy’s show out.

  • Hi Preston, I agree with Kim, FN seems to have lost its magic. But I will check it out again and watch Amy.

  • I agree with Kathy and Kim. With a few exceptions, FN has become one long reality show–drama, angst, tears, competitions. I remember the first ‘cooking video’ that launched the idea of the Food Network–Martha Stewart’s ‘Thanksgiving’ special, when she took us all to the cranberry bog. And of course Julia Child’s amazing run on public television . . . no nonsense with those pros! Can’t wait to see the new cookbook!

  • I have seen Amy’s show and agree she is a serious professional, not likely to go the “celebrity” route. She has an obvious love for her native state and a simple lifestyle, which is enhanced by her impressive, worldly resume. Unlike the Pioneer Woman, which is an amusing blog, but translated terribly into a cooking show, in my opinion.

  • I was just perusing your site and realized that I somehow missed this post back in March (this blog is typically a daily read). I too stumbled upon Amy’s show early one morning (I’m West Coast) and quickly fell in love. I still have every episode on the DVR. I got the cookbook as a Christmas gift last year and read it like a novel. Keeping my fingers crossed for more episodes.
