Book Signing with Amy Thielen: The New Midwestern Table

“In hybridizing her northern prairie–übercool grandma meets modernist-craftsman gastronaut, [Amy Thielen] has defined the food of our ‘place’ in a way that’s never been done before.”
—Andrew Zimmern

Join modern-day homesteader Amy Thielen, host of the Food Network’s “Heartland Table,” at the Walker Shop, where she’ll sign copies of her new book The New Midwestern Table: 200 Heartland Recipes.

Chef and connoisseur of all things authentically Midwestern, Thielen applies her professionally honed cooking skills to the classic dishes she grew up with in northern Minnesota, while also unearthing local gems across the region. The cuisine is generous, thrifty, intuitive, seasonal, and intimate. With 150 color photographs capturing these fresh-from-the-land dishes and the striking beauty of the terrain, her cookbook will cause any home cook to fall in love with the captivating flavors of the American heartland.

This special Walker Shop author event includes a cash bar. In addition, the Shop, Gather by D’Amico, and the galleries are open until 9 pm.

On March 6, join Thielen at Gather, where she’ll make an appearance and share tastes from her special menu for the month as the Walker’s guest chef-in-residence.
