In Nova Scotia, they like to say “You haven’t seen Nova Scotia until you’ve tasted Nova Scotia!” 

Nova Scotia’s vibrant food and drink scene makes it the perfect destination for those seeking culinary adventure. They have internationally recognized chefs and restaurants, an award-winning wine industry, thriving fisheries, with lobster, scallops, oysters, and more, diverse agricultural products, a booming craft beverage industry with beer, cider, spirits, and mead, coupled with breathtaking scenery and world-renowned hospitality. 

Their love language is food. They open their communities, their homes, and their kitchens, to share food and tell stories. Every bowl of chowder, every glass of wine, every fresh shucked oyster, every piece of apple pie, tells the story of who they are and where they’re from. It tells the story of their coastal climate and unique geography. It tells the story of their fishing communities and rich agricultural landscapes. It tells the story of their diverse cultures and traditions. It tells the story of their chefs and artisans, their winemakers, brewers and distillers, their farmers and fishers. It tells the story of their passion, innovation, talent and commitment to place. 

From our land, from our sea, from our hands, visitors are encouraged to eat, drink and explore their way through Nova Scotia. Looking for some guidance? Let Taste of Nova Scotia be your guide.
