Phone App Links Foodies to N.S. Adventures


HALIFAX — Consumers looking to book a restaurant table, tour a distillery or hunt for chanterelles in Nova Scotia can now tap into their smartphones for information.  

The initiative is due to the combined efforts of  Taste of Nova Scotia, the Winery Association of Nova Scotia and The Nova Scotia Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage who have pooled resources to create Adventures in Taste,  a new app that helps consumers plan their food and wine fun in Nova Scotia.   

Downloading the free Adventures in Taste app (available on the website or at the Apple App Store) gets consumers an interactive, location-aware travel guide with a culinary focus.

According to a story in the Canadian Tourism Commission newsletter, the collection of restaurants, local producers, specialty food shops, farmers’ markets, u-picks, breweries and wineries listed numbers approximately 100.

Among the culinary tours and packages offered are chanterelle foraging on Cape Breton Island, a distillery tour that wraps up with the song and dance of a traditional ceilidah, a 100-mile diet tour of Nova Scotia’s southwest, an introduction to French New World cuisine, cooking classes, tasting menus, brewery tours and a variety of wine adventures, including a night in a vineyard.
