A Wicked Scoff...Recipes and Food with Newfoundland and New England Influences.
This blog is dedicated to bring recipes, photographs, anecdotes, reviews and other insights on everything food related. As the name suggests, "A Wicked Scoff" will have a regional flare, a fusion if you will, of both Newfoundland and New England perspectives of the culinary world around me. Thanks for visiting and please come back often as updates will be frequent. Oh yeah, I also like tasting and cooking with regional beers. Expect a beer of the month, often paired with recipes.

New Posts Coming This Weekend
Due to a crash of my laptop last night, there was no new posting to the blog as I had hoped. Stay tuned tomorrow for a new post on some upcoming inspiration from two old cookbooks. One is an LL Bean cookbook of New England recipies and the other is Recipes of the Atlantoc Provinces, which was a series of small books and a binder put out by Ultramar gas stations some years ago. Many great recipes in these books that I will be making and sharing. There are a lot of similar common ingredients and techniquies between the two regions, molasses, fat back, dried fruit, root vegetables, wild game and seafood, etc, but with totally different results. Where I can, I'll be putting my own little twist on the recipes, and will try to both recreate and reinvent some of the classics. I'm excited to make a New England cookie called Hermits. When I first had one last week I said, "Newfoundlander's would love these!"
