How to Cook a Jiggs Dinner

A Jigg's Dinner is a traditional Newfoundland meal.  Growing up in Newfoundland, we would usually have this meal every week on Sunday. 

The wonderful smell of this meal would hit you as soon as you entered the door on your way back from mass.  Family, and often friends, would gather to eat and chat about whatever went on the week before.

Jokes, stories and great conversation was the mainstay of this midday meal and, of course, the star of the show was the Jigg's Dinner.

While every little community and town has their own spin on how to make this meal, my course will teach you how to make a Jigg's Dinner as I enjoyed it with my family growing up on the Bonavista Peninsula.
