Mussels NormandyThere’s a good reason that mussels are a standard appetizer in Nova Scotia. Simply steamed and dipped in butter or topped with one of the many sauces that show up on creative menus, sweet and briny mussels stand the test of time. I’m a fan of this recipe that also showcases local fall apples, along with shallots, butter, rosemary and full cream. The smell reminds me of a dish from Northern France, hence the name — and my suggestion that you serve it with a chewy homemade baguette that you can tear up by hand, as though you’re in a French bistro by the sea. The sauce is too good to waste a drop, so use the bread for dipping!Apple Cranberry ChutneyThis simple condiment is a classic around Christmas as a side to turkey or turkey leftovers but works equally well year-round for roast chicken dishes, roast pork, or on a sandwich.
"Cooking locally and seasonally isn't a trend. It's the way it's always been. And this will always be true of great food.
