Pam Freir’s encounters with food bring a fresh new perspectiveto a familiar and ever-popular subject: with Freir, food is fun. She forages forfiddleheads, wrestles with an artichoke, celebrates the egg and hosts the firstannual do-it-yourself Cornish Hen Stuffathon. She assembles a haggis, meets achef with twelve toes, survives several meals with small children and feasts onlobster under the watchful eye of the US Secret Service. From the Nova Scotia ofher childhood she takes us, via her culinary coming of-age in Toronto, to thebucolic Gulf Islands in BC where she now lives―a cheerful journey of discoveryfrom Blueberry Grunt to catch-as-catchcan bouillabaisse and a tea party in therainforest. Sprinkled throughout are some of Freir’s favourite recipes.
