  • NEW PRAIRIE KITCHEN

    New Prairie Kitchen profiles 25 of the most exciting and groundbreaking chefs, farmers and producers of artisanal goods from Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota and Missouri. Their personal stories are interspersed with more than 50 chef-contributed recipes that range from refreshingly simple to exquisitely gourmet. Organized by season, New Prairie Kitchen will transport you to a revitalized Midwestern heartland where traditional favorites interweave with inspiring new flavors and techniques.

    The Great Plains are often maligned as "flyover" country, or perhaps only known as bulk producers of corn, soybeans, beef and pork. But spend any time in these heartland cities or farms and you'll quickly discover a burgeoning "good food" movement and top-notch farm-to-fork dining. Nebraska can still grill a mean flat iron steak and Iowa can grow corn as high as an elephant's eye, but New Prairie Kitchen introduces readers to the phenomenal talent emerging from America’s breadbasket: farms that grow asparagus thick as your thumb and tender as a strawberry; dairies that produce fresh, natural milks and cheeses; and nationally recognized restaurants that make these mouthwatering ingredients into edible art. Pioneering chefs across the prairie have taken an old-meets-new approach to their cuisine, sourcing traditional staples, such as bison and ground cherries, from local sustainable farms, and incorporating them into recipes in new and thrilling ways.

  • PAWPAW: IN SEARCH OF AMERICA'S FORGOTTEN FRUIT

    The largest edible fruit native to the United States tastes like a cross between a banana and a mango. The trees are an organic grower’s dream, requiring no pesticides or herbicides to thrive, and containing compounds that are among the most potent anticancer agents yet discovered.

    In Pawpaw (a 2016 James Beard Foundation Award nominee in the Writing & Literature category), author Andrew Moore explores the past, present, and future of this unique fruit, traveling from the Ozarks to Monticello; canoeing the lower Mississippi in search of wild fruit; drinking pawpaw beer in Durham, North Carolina; tracking down lost cultivars in Appalachian hollers; and helping out during harvest season in a Maryland orchard. Along the way, he gathers pawpaw lore and knowledge not only from the plant breeders and horticulturists working to bring pawpaws into the mainstream (including Neal Peterson, known in pawpaw circles as the fruit’s own “Johnny Pawpawseed”), but also regular folks who remember eating them in the woods as kids, but haven’t had one in more than 50 years.
