Maritime cooking starts with great local produce--lobster, scallops, oysters, blueberries, apples, cranberries, maple syrup, and more. There are treasured traditional dishes--hodge podge, baked beans, gingerbread, blueberry grunt--as well as the simple but delicious lobster boil. Leading chefs like Craig Flinn of Halifax''s Chives restaurant, Michael Howell of The Tempest in Wolfville, and many others have come up with wonderful new ways of cooking with fresh, local ingredients. Best Recipes of the Maritime Provinces brings the traditional and the contemporary together in one great collection.

During her many years as Canadian Living magazine''s food editor, Elizabeth Baird was a great fan of Maritime cooking. She has visited every corner of the region to research and write about great local producers and cooks and their recipes. To prepare this collection, she started with well over 1,000 recipes published in cookbooks over the past three decades. From those, she has selected 400+ recipes by over fifty of the region''s leading chefs, including Elaine Elliot and Virginia Lee, whose bestselling Maritime Flavours has sold more than 30,000 copies. Also included are tasty recipes from healthy eating champions Maureen Tilley and Sandra Nowlan.

This is the book that every Maritime cook will want--and that visitors will take home so they can explore the region''s rich culinary traditions.
