Ás an Abhainn Mhóir: English-Gaelic Recipes from Pictou County

This bilingual cookbook contains over 50 recipes both modern and traditional, in English and Scottish Gaelic, from Pictou County, Nova Scotia. Interspersed with the recipes are traditional Gaelic proverbs, tales, and songs, along with photos of the region’s natural beauty and Gaelic cultural heritage. The contents are presented in a bilingual format with English on one side and Gaelic on the facing page. “Ás an Abhainn Mhóir” means “From the Big River.” An t-Abhainn Mhór, the Big River, is what Gaels in Pictou County call the East River.
