Canada: Three Nova Scotia Comfort Foods

Posted by on Nov 5, 2015 in Canada, Destinations, Food, Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 35 comments

It’s week 253 of Travel Photo Thursday, welcome! I’m still moaning over essays, but on a positive note, I am on schedule to be 100% essay free by Sunday! All this marking and the cold weather has me thinking of comfort food, and not just any comfort food. I’m craving three of my favorite Nova Scotia comfort foods.

First there’s fishcakes and seafood chowder. I grew up on mom’s and dad’s, and, at 92, my dad still makes both of these dishes once in a while, and they are amazing. After my Dad’s, the best fishcakes and seafood chowder I’ve had in recent years was at the Train Station Inn in rural Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. I did not want this meal to end. Both the chowder and the fishcakes were seasoned perfectly, and the fish used in both dishes was over the top delicious.

Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia for Travel Back Saturday

If you think trains are romantic, a visit to the Tatamagouche Train Station Inn in historic Tatmagouche, Nova Scotia is a must. The historic B & B offers the opportunity to eat, sleep, and drink in any number of refurbished CN rail cars. The last time I was home I went on a road trip with a friend. While we didn’t stay at the Inn we did take the time to wander the grounds, and enjoy a fab lunch in the dining car.

This is the second week of Travel Back Saturday. If you like, you can have a peek at last week’s travel inspiration here…
