Heartland Table - a new cooking show

EM23 | Sep 21, 2013 10:42 AM

I caught this new cooking show on FN this morning and really enjoyed it. The host, Amy Thielen, is an experienced chef who worked professionally for several years in the kitchens of some pretty big names--Boulud, Vongerichten and Bouley—before returning to her native Minnesota, where the show is filmed. Her extended family featured heavily in the episode that I saw, but not in a cutesy or annoying way, and Thielen herself is a natural and engaging host. Today she made fried bologna, ghee, a pepper-crusted pork loin, fresh onion dip and grilled flatbreads. The show repeats tomorrow morning at 9:30.
