By Elisabeth Bailey
Contemporary Maritime cuisine reflects both a rich history of seasonal home-cooking with fresh, local ingredients as well as modern flavour influences from around the world. A Taste of the Maritimes is a collection of vibrant new recipes that showcase the best on offer from our fields, orchards, and waters throughout the year. Author Elisabeth Bailey illuminates the joys of local, seasonal eating, presenting each recipe in a casual yet cordial style, with photographs that capture the essence of local flavour.
Broken into five chapters–spring, early and late summer, fall, and winter–the book’s easy-to-follow recipes are interspersed with profiles of local farmers and suppliers including Fox Hill Cheese, Ironworks Distillery, and Speerville Flour Mill. With recipes such as Fiddleheads and Bacon in spring, Balsamic Honey Fruit Salad and Inside-Out Dragn Burgers in summer, Heritage Bean Chili in fall, and Slow-Roasted Turkey in Juniper Brine for the holidays, A Taste of the Maritimes celebrates the seasons in delectable style.
