A frequent guest on Appetites, author Amy Thielen celebrates Midwestern cuisine in her book The New Midwestern Table: 200 Heartland Recipes.

From the publisher about The New Midwestern Table:200 Heartland Recipes:

Amy Thielen grew up in rural northern Minnesota, waiting in lines for potluck buffets amid loops of smoked sausages from her uncle’s meat market and in the company of women who could put up jelly without a recipe. She spent years cooking in some of New York City’s best restaurants, but it took moving home in 2008 for her to rediscover the wealth and diversity of the Midwestern table, and to witness its reinvention.

The New Midwestern Table reveals all that she’s come to love–and learn–about the foods of her native Midwest, through updated classic recipes and numerous encounters with spirited home cooks and some of the region’s most passionate food producers. With 150 color photographs capturing these fresh-from-the-land dishes and the striking beauty of the terrain, this cookbook will cause any home cook to fall in love with the captivating flavors of the American heartland.

  • SIGNED BOOK: Tom Weber - 100 Things to Do in the Twin Cities Before You Die
  • $10 per month

Enjoyed Jim McGuinn’s interview with Keith Richards? Follow it up with the long-awaited autobiography from the Rolling Stone’s frontman.

From the publisher about Keith Richards – Life:

With The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the songs that roused the world, and he lived the original rock and roll life.

Now, at last, the man himself tells his story of life in the crossfire hurricane. Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records, learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones. The Rolling Stones’s first fame and the notorious drug busts that led to his enduring image as an outlaw folk hero. Creating immortal riffs like the ones in ‘Jumping Jack Flash’ and ‘Honky Tonk Women.’ His relationship with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones. Tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the U.S., isolation and addiction. Falling in love with Patti Hansen. Estrangement from Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. Marriage, family, solo albums and Xpensive Winos, and the road that goes on forever.

With his trademark disarming honesty, Keith Richard brings us the story of a life we have all longed to know more of, unfettered, fearless, and true.
