Geraldine 'Gerry' Rubia, née Chafe .(b. July 4, 1929, Brooklyn, New York [of Newfoundland parents] - d. October 22, 2016, St. John's)
"As early as 1969, I conceived the idea of putting together a book of recipes and poems. Being enthusiastic about both cooking and poetry, I thought it a natural combination. However it was not until after an encouraging conversation with Ivan Jesperson in January 1979 that I finally went to work on it.
"With the decision to include traditional Newfoundland recipes, expressions, and folklore the project turned out to be a co-operative one involving dozens of friends, relatives. and acquaintances from scattered parts of Newfoundland and Labrador. With regard to the poetry, I stuck to my original intention of including only poems that I wrote myself." - p.[viii].
