From the Publisher
The idea for a book of recipes and poems was conceived by Geraldine Chafe Rubia in 1969. Being enthusiastic about both cooking and poetry, she thought it only natural to combine the two in one book. This book also includes Newfoundland expressions and folklore; it is a co-operative work involving dozens of the author''s friends, relatives, and acquaintances from scattered parts of Newfoundland and Labrador . In the case of some St. John''s contributors, the author has listed their hometowns to indicate that they brought their recipes and folklore from other parts of the province. Also included are a few recipes that have been brought from other countries by people who have chosen to live in Newfoundland and Labrador . Accompanying the recipes and Newfoundland witticisms are original works of poetry by Geraldine Chafe Rubia.
