Book Description
Curious cures and delicious recipes from the 17th century are to be found within these pages. With syllabub and loblolly, pottage and spiced bread, this book describes a way of life long gone. It holds a collection of interesting and tasty tidbits with everything from dream interpretation to diet tips, "use a measure of eating that thou mayst live long and if thou wilt be in health, then hold thine handes."

Excerpts from old English manuscripts and Newfoundland letters paint a vivid picture of how Newfoundland's earliest settlers might have lived.

"Imaginative, learned, passionate, this uniquely displayed book re-connects the olde New Found Land culture with its new -whilst teaching us how to cook. I love this book." - Donna Morrissey, author of Kit's Law and Downhill Chance
