Reviews

"Thoughtful, addicting."--Christopher Borrelli, Chicago Tribune --Christopher Borrelli"Chicago Tribune" (10/23/2013)
"This anthology of essays on the Midwest's best and most unpretentious foods should go a long way toward regaining the respect the heartland's cuisine ought to enjoy."--Mark Knoblauch, Booklist--Mark Knoblauch"Booklist" (10/01/2013)
"A delectable read, sprinkled with recipes and generous helpings of fun and plenty of food for thought."--Graciela Monday, Library Journal--Graciela Monday"Library Journal" (09/15/2013)
"Heartland natives will embrace the recipes, if not the remembrances of State Fair corn dogs and Lake Michigan fish boils, German kuchen and tamales eaten on Chicago's Maxwell Street, a.k.a. "the Ellis Island of the Midwest.""--Jenny Rosenstrach, New York Times-- (12/13/2013)
"A brilliant collection of Heartland food stories."--Publishers Weekly--Publishers Weekly (08/19/2013)
"Fried Walleye and Cherry Pie reads like a feast and roundtrip combined taking in Iowa . . . and skirting the "tan landscape" of the "Corn Belt". The books ends in a selection of desserts, allowing Peggy Woolf to reminisce about pie, stuffed with fruits of Wisconsin . . . plucked from the tops of sunbathed trees."--Times Literary Supplement--Times Literary Supplement
