Fiddleheads, Fricot & Frittata evolved from a Canada 150 project at the Albert County Museum in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick. The goal is to celebrate the foods of Atlantic Canada and, in doing so, honour the people of this region – people who lived here centuries ago, current residents whose ancestors cleared our farmlands, and people “from away” who now call Atlantic Canada home.

This book is about sharing – the sharing of recipes and stories, cultures and communities. Most of the recipes have been gathered from people in Albert County, NB, but they aren’t necessarily traditional New Brunswick foods. Although many recipes have been handed down from one generation to another, other recipes were discovered while living on another continent or created from scratch in an Albert County kitchen.

The eclectic nature of this collection of more than 200 recipes exemplifies the beauty of a potluck, as opposed to a melting pot, approach to cultural relationships.
