A Taste of Nova Scotia
But it’s not just seafood that will have you inquiring about seconds. Nova Scotians have long enjoyed the bounty of both land and sea, and our rich fisheries is complemented by fertile farmland that fills a cupboard’s worth of culinary inspiration at more than 1,300 restaurants across the province.

If you want to cook yourself, many communities have farmers’ markets bursting with local fruits and vegetables, handcrafted cheeses, and ethically raised meats.

From traditional fare such as fish cakes & chow to avant-garde fusion like pan-seared scallops with oxtail ravioli, Nova Scotia’s reputation as an award-winning destination for food is spreading. Many restaurants use locally-source and in-season ingredients to create one-of-a-kind dishes.
