Sippin ‘n’ Shuckin’, 2011

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about Sip’ n’ Shuck a couple weeks ago. I was so pumped to have another opportunity to try some of the newer Nova Scotian wines, the always incredible ice wines and, some fresh, clean and salt watery goodness of Nova Scotian oysters. As you’ll see, I definitely took advantage of the crustaceans, but at Sip’ n’ Shuck, there is so much more to take in!
Along with the freshly-shucked oysters, there were hors d’oeuvres prepared with oysters; mussels steamed with bacon and leeks and saffron-vanilla; a luxurious cheese board, an enormous selection of chocolates from the Sweet Spot Chocolate Shop (my fave chocolate spot in the province) and a wine presence from almost all of Nova Scotia’s wineries.
Make sure to keep your eye out for this event next year, at $35/ticket, it’s a great value, and a wonderful opportunity to check out some of NS’s best products from vine and sea!
