  Simple Pleasure From Our Maritime Kitchens by Julie V Watson
Simple Pleasures
From Our
Maritime Kitchens

 by Julie V Watson

“If I have a wish for readers it is that they create a kitchen that is the heart of the home — you can give your family and friends no greater gift than that of kinship, warmth and caring: simple pleasures from your kitchen.” 

Historically the kitchen is the heart of the Maritime home.  For, in the kitchen, homemakers, mothers and housekeepers — along with putting three square meals on the table a day — fashioned clothing, hooked mats, made candles, oversaw lessons and balanced household accounts.  And, most importantly, they provided a warm, welcome haven for kith and kin.

 Full of recipes and kitchen lore, Simple Pleasures from our Maritimes Kitchens is a celebration of good, old-fashioned home cooking as well as a loving account of Atlantic Canada’s rich culinary heritage.  With a chapter for each month, this book takes the reader through a year in the life of a Maritime kitchen.  Watson also brings the area’s history to life with excerpts from authentic regional cookbooks from the early 20th century.  Simple Pleasures features simple, wholesome and delicious dishes for every kind of meal and occasion — year round.
