TAKE ONE CURIOUS AND FEISTY LITTLE GIRL from New Brunswick, transplant her to Montreal, dress her in a Red River coat, add a dollop of St. Urbain Street (including a stink bomb throwing Mordecai Richler), mix in Jewish and Protestant neighbours and the stern Catholic nuns and you have a recipe for adventure and more than a few hijinks. Before Sliced Bread will take you across Canada on the journey of a lifetime, a lifetime of family, friends, history and food - Acadian, Newfoundland and Quebecois. This memoir is enriched with traditional recipes, which will delight both the palate and the eye, with beautifully rendered professional photographs by the author. Before Sliced Bread is a tour de force by a dynamic woman who engages life fully and reminds us all to carpe diem - seize the day.
