For centuries, the land and sea have forged the people of this vast land
known as Newfoundland and Labrador. From the earliest inhabitants 10,000 years ago to the most recent generation of European descendants, the table fare has primarily evolved from what was readily available. The food of this easternmost province reflects the land and the people who live on it: hearty, solid and down to earth, and Wilson has managed to marry the two marvellously with revealing imagery. The 23 landscape photographs invoke a sense place and tantalize the palette with a full spectrum. More than 25 recipes, several with accompanying photographs, whet the appetitie and let us revel. This is a unique recipe book bound to complement the coffee table or kitchen, and is as colourful as the people who inspired it.
