GUEST,Geordie BS: Irish food question ? (134* d) RE: BS: Irish food question ? 19 Mar 02


I believe they were called saltbanker dinners because they were often served on sailing ships going from Nova Scotia to fish on the Grand Banks off Nfld. I may be wrong, but that seems to be the general opinion round here. If anyone has another explanation, I would love to hear more. PS I am Not an American..I am an Atlantic Canadian, I find the other assumption offensive, even it twisted logic is applied, it seems a rather silly thing to say.
