The Rappie Pie is very famous with the french ppl here. They are so famous.. that if they had any gathering.. one cannot do without the Rappie Pie. The Rappie pie is made of grated potatoes, chicken (or whatever meat) patates râpées, hence the name “rappie” pie. Once the potatoes are grated and the water removed, hot broth is added along with meat , onions and pork fat to make a delicious all-in-one meal that some prefer to eat with a little butter or molasses! It is one of the most favorite meal amongst the Acadians of Southwest Nova Scotia.
