Without a country, what defines a people? Simon Thibault takes us to his Acadia, where family and homely food give a sense of place.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.
– Evangeline, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The first film from our adventures in Nova Scotia takes a whimsical path to Acadia through the eyes of cookbook author Simon Thibault who celebrates the perseverance of food culture despite a history of hardship and “being dispersed, but still fervently of where you are.”
