Full Episode Guide
  • As the weather breaks after a long, bitter winter in Northern Minnesota, tradition calls for the start of road trips. Amy Theilen heads to Madison, Wis., where she meets with local butcher and friend Johnny, who sends her home with delectable beef spare ribs from Fountain Prairie Farm. At her favorite cheese shop, Fromagination, Amy picks some of Wisconsin's best cheeses before stopping at Karben4, a new brewery that will supply her a smoked Porter used both as an ingredient and accompaniment to her recipes. Back at home, uses her collected ingredients to prepare Oven Baked Ribs, Smoked Sardine Caesar and Maple Bread With Washed Rind Cheese.

  • Amy Thielen celebrates everything outdoors as her neighbors bring back the freshest catch in order to prepare a crispy Skinned Trout With Butter Sauce. Amy's garden provides the inspiration behind a Green Salad With Brown Butter Balsamic Walnut Vinaigrette and Sheep's Milk Cheese. On the grill, Amy enjoys grilling skewers of tomatoes, onion, bacon and bread, served with a ripe Cheddar aged in a cave by cheesemaker friend, Willi Lehner of Blue Mont Dairy.
