Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens (revised edition)
Now an established regional classic, Out of Old Nova Scotia Kitchens was first published in 1970 and became an instant hit, selling more copies than any cookbook ever published in the province. A collection of traditional Nova Scotia recipes, the book remains extremely popular today and has proven to be a practical guide as well as a delight for armchair cooks. Besides providing easy-to-use recipes for the province's traditional dishes, Marie Nightingale also tells the stories of the people who prepared this unique cuisine.
