CULINARY AMBASSADORS OF THE YEAR OF THE YEAR
Chris and Melissa Velden (of The Flying Apron Inn & Cookery), and the experiences they offer, exemplify Nova Scotia as an international culinary destination.
They are Nova Scotia culinary ambassadors in every sense of the word. They chose to make their home in Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia continues to be at the forefront of everything they do. They offer exceptional local food at their restaurant, hospitality at their inn, ongoing education through their cookery school and unique experiences like Dining on the Ocean Floor that are now attracting the world’s attention.
