Journalist Simon Thibault explores his Acadian roots by scouring old family recipes, ladies’ auxiliary cookbooks, and folk wisdom for 50 of the best-loved recipes of Acadians past and present. Recipes run the gamut from Acadian staples such as potato pancakes, Rappie Pie, Chicken Fricot, and various forms of meat pies; old-fashioned foodways, such as how to render your own lard, and make the most of out a pig’s head; and sumptuous sweets take the form of Rhubarb Custard Pie or a simple Molasses Cake.
This book is really different from other cook books I have read. I felt it went deeper than just here is a recipe, the ingredients the instructions. Maybe it was the layout or maybe the handwritten recipes, or maybe the interesting pictures.
The recipes are interesting, like Johnny Cakes, Fricot, Clam Pie, Cornmeal Sandwich Bread, Rhubarb Pudding and more.
I think this book is perfect for those who really want dig into something different. Those who want to challenge themselves and their family.
