What’s Cooking in Nova Scotia September 27 to October 4, 2016?

Nova Scotia Oysters Rockefeller

Feel that chill in the air? That late-September nippy weather is the only signal you need to allow yourself to indulge in your most lavish cravings. This week holds promises of decadence- from chocolate and oysters, to five course meals and fine wines. Whatever your kryptonite, one thing is for sure: It’s the perfect time to treat yourself!

September 27: Chocolate Class with Chocolate Hackers

This sweet workshop will teach you how to satisfy your chocolate cravings without having to leave the house. We’ll let you decide if that’s a good thing or not. At The Flying Apron Inn & Cookery, take a crash course in cocoa with the Chocolate Hackers. You can even take your creations home afterwards, if they last that long. Tickets: $60 + tax More Info: Chocolate Class with Chocolate Hackers
