The authors travelled all over Acadia to gather the culinary secrets of traditional Acadian cooks and then adapted more than 150 recipes for today’s kitchens. This popular English translation of the best-selling Cuisine traditionelle en Acadie includes recipes for such things as roast porcupine, fricot, poutine rapée, and pot en pot. A Taste of Acadie is traditional cooking at its best, suffusing contemporary kitchens with country aromas and down-home flavours.
