Executive Chef Les Stevens
Restaurant: Harbour City Bar & Grill, Halifax
What is your favourite item on your menu?
Always something that features Nova Scotia Pork. It is so versatile and underrated.
What is the best thing about being a chef?
The lifestyle. Each day allows a new experience. Never a set routine.
What is the one Taste of Nova Scotia product that you can’t live without?
Smeltzer’s Honey…..I use it everywhere.
Why is it important to support local businesses?
I grew up in rural New Brunswick and we always were mostly self-supported. The freshness and quality differs greatly from imported products from foreign countries. Also the environmental impact of trucking and shipping comes into question. Bottom line, support your local communities! more…

All of the people I’ve met care deeply about the success of their respective businesses, but they also care about sustaining our provincial economy – and they each do it in amazing and innovative ways. Many are also focused on operating with a great deal of respect for the land and the people around them. This province is full of amazing small businesses. more…
