Comfort food is defined as food that is satisfying because it is prepared in a simple or traditional way and reminds you of home, family, or friends. It makes you feel good. It takes you back, rekindles warm memories, and reminds you who you are and where you come from. It’s simple, honest and delicious. Local food shares many of the same connections, so it’s really no wonder that comfort food and local ingredients go hand in hand.
It’s March. Maple, meat and more local fun.

They don’t call Nova Scotia the lobster capital of Canada for no reason. We’re home to one of the largest fleets in the world, and lobster is the lifeblood of many Nova Scotian communities. When you make it part of your holiday eating, you support this important industry and the hard-working fishermen and processors who earn their living from the sea.
The holidays are in full swing and when it comes to shopping local, a lot of folks are focused on finding the perfect gifts for the people on our list. But, let’s not forget about how much we do at home during the festive season. From your Christmas tree to your Christmas dinner, everything you buy locally does as much good for local producers and your community as the local gifts you buy.
