Amy Thielen presents Give a Girl a Knife
In conversation with Matt Weiland

Before Amy Thielen was the host of the James Beard-nominated Heartland Table on the Food Network, and before her richly woven cookbook The New Midwestern Table was chosen as one of Food & Wine’s best of the year, and before she was cooking in some of New York City’s finest kitchens—for chefs David Bouley, Daniel Boulud, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten—she grew up in a northern Minnesota town: home to the nation's largest French fry factory, the headwaters of the fast food nation, inspired by the cooking of her mother and grandmother. Her literary debut Give a Girl a Knife is a food memoir, a pulsing coming-of-age story, a vivid view into New York’s high-end restaurants and ultimately a journey toward home. Thielen presents her memoir, followed by a discussion with Greenlight neighbor Matt Weiland, Vice President and Senior Editor at W.W. Norton.
