Picks and Pans Review: Heartland
by Marcia Adams
Yes, Virginia, there is a Midwest cuisine, as Adams's rosy-cheeked book amply demonstrates. A Hoosier and the host of the PBS series Amish Cooking from Quilt Country, Adams has scoured Minnesota to Missouri for heirloom "attic" recipes as well as the best from contemporary restaurants. Here are elderberry blossom fritters and wild rice soup, and wonderful surprises like a chocolate cake made with mashed potatoes and one made with, yikes, sauerkraut. Both are delicious—and much moistened by the unlikely ingredients. (Clarkson Potter, $30)
