Bring a Taste of Nova Scotia to You

Nova Scotia is loved by locals and tourists for so many reasons – our beautiful landscapes, friendly communities, incredible culinary experiences, and more. We can’t wait for the day where we can safely welcome visitors to our province and share all it has to offer once again. Until then, we’re sharing a few ways that you or your loved ones can enjoy a Taste of Nova Scotia, wherever your home may be.

Taste of Nova Scotia Gift Boxes

Our Taste of Nova Scotia Gift Shop features an array of Gift Boxes filled with handpicked, artisanal food and beverage products from Taste of Nova Scotia members across the province. Order your gift box of choice online and have it shipped to you no matter where you are!

Nova Scotia Cookbooks

The Nova Scotia Cookery, Then & Now cookbook brings together Nova Scotia’s multicultural heritage with generations of culinary traditions to create over 80 modernized recipes. Every time you try a new recipe you’ll be celebrating Nova Scotia’s culinary history, culture and traditions.

Chef Alain Bossé  (The Kilted Chef) shares his Acadian heritage and undeniable passion for cooking in his wide selection of cookbooks. Bonus – many of his latest releases come in E-Book versions, allowing easy access for our friends outside the province!

We don’t blame you if you miss summer days spent in Nova Scotia vineyards – take yourself back to those precious moments and savour Nova Scotia wine right at home! Many Nova wineries offer Wine Club subscriptions, allowing you to host your own tastings with your favourite local wines and exclusive releases!
