Canadian Food Words by Bill Casselman

Canadas bestselling word wizard is back, with a gustatory gallivant across Canada! Learn about and enjoy some of the food words Canadians use and have used - many of these words as tangy and succulent as the foods they name. Casselman sets the gastric juices flowing and helps us savour the etymological flavour of our hearty Canadian fare as well.The gastromonic grand tour begins in Newfoundland aftera Jiggs dinner with scrunchins, washed down with a stain o rum, and then we light out for the West Coast to lap up a foaming bowl of soapahollie ice cream. Along the way there are stops and mug-ups for Maritime fungy and bangbelly, bakeapple jam and blueberry grunt, fricko on PEI, rappie pie in New Brunswick, drepsley soup in Southern Ontario, bannock in Manitoba, Saskatoonberry turnovers along the Qu-Appelle River, backed wind pills in Alberta, and moose-muffle soup in Tuktoyaktuk.Foodies and word buffs alike will enjoy this book, written as it is in true Casselman form - scholarly, entertaining and often hilarious.
