Let Us Give Thanks
Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the harvest and to remember everything we’re grateful for. At Taste of Nova Scotia, we’re grateful for the fresh and delicious ingredients that are available locally from our home land. Feel good about choosing local products while enjoying your Thanksgiving feast this year. However you choose to celebrate, we’ve got you covered for ideas from start to finish.
A Decorative Welcoming
A Bubbly Start
An impressive start to the evening does not have to be complex. An offering of Selkie Frizzante from Devonian Coast Winery will have everyone feeling bubbly in no time. Pair with stuffed local mushrooms for a bite-size appetizer combo.
Turkey, Ham or Neither?
Try something different this year. You may have heard of turducken, but how about turkporken from the Pork Shop? Not feeling that adventurous? Try glazing your turkey or ham with Haskapa jam or make a squash soup as a vegetarian option.
White, red, rose. Dry, sweet or crisp. Raise your glasses for a thankful toast with your favourite Nova Scotian beverage. Blomidon Estate Winery, Benjamin Bridge and Ironworks offer a large selection just to name a few!
A Harvest-full Serving
Potatoes, turnip, beets, squash, carrots, corn – the list goes on. Pick up all your favourite veggies at Noggins Corner Farm Market, Masstown Market or local farmers’ markets for a taste of Nova Scotia you can’t beat.
The Side Scoop
Ending on a Sweet Note
Be thankful for the room left in your belly to indulge in one last thing: dessert. Pie, in particular. Make your own using local pumpkin or apples, pick one up from Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet, Stirling Fruit Farm Ltd or Masstown Market OR try Domaine de Grand Pre’s Pomme d’Or dessert wine – it’s apple pie in a glass!
No Dishes Option
Make your holiday a little more relaxing by letting someone else do the cooking (and dishes!). Pre-order a local dinner-to-go from Kitchen Door Catering or Scanway Catering or make reservations to enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner at Elliot’s Dining Room at White Point Beach.
