French Taste in Atlantic Canada
by Chantal Vechambre / AM Lane Jonah
Description

The book is an exploration of how the first generations of French who settled in the region learned about, reacted to and began to work with local food knowledge and ingredients. Understanding how people used the food around them, how they combined it with imported foods and techniques, and how they adapted and shared that knowledge, opens a door to the everyday world of the French explorers and colonists in what would become Atlantic Canada. For 21st-century readers, a book about food and culture would be incomplete without the means to experience them; the authors and consultants behind French Taste in Atlantic Canada have studied, recreated and tested dozens of recipes and menus to suit every taste and interest to make this book a treasured addition to historians and foodies alike.
