In Pantry and Palate, journalist Simon Thibault explores his Acadian roots by scouring old family recipes, ladies'' auxiliary cookbooks, and folk wisdom for 50 of the best-loved recipes of Acadians past and present. Recipes run the gamut from Acadian staples such as potato pancakes called Fring Frangs, Rappie Pie, Chicken Fricot, and various forms of meat pies; old-fashioned foodways, such as how to render your own lard, and make the most of out a pig''s head; and sumptuous sweets take the form of Rhubarb Custard Pie or a simple Molasses Cake.
