A super moist apple cake made with Fox Hill yogurt and Annapolis Valley apples.
Jeanita Rand from Fox Hill Cheese House initially found a version of this recipe in the newspaper and it’s now a family favourite. This is perfect for Christmas morning breakfast with a slice of caraway Gouda as a snack with a cup of java or for dessert with either plain yogurt or vanilla gelato.

It’s easy to imagine sitting down to a great meal of your favourite Nova Scotian seafood paired with your favourite wine or beer. Now, imagine being able to test-drive different pairings, while peppering the producers with questions. Discovering new ways to eat and serve Nova Scotia’s amazing seafood is at the heart of the Sip ‘n Shuck experience.

Decadent… have you ever actually looked up the word? I took a spin on the web and Miriam Webster provided me with a little guidance:
dec•a•dent adj. characterized by or appealing to self-indulgence <decadent pleasures>
Now to many the act of self-indulgence, the very act of being decadent, would be thought of as being something special. Something you treat yourself to; a thing to be savored. Now I certainly subscribe to the belief that there are somethings that should be kept for special occasions – that 18 year old scotch we bought 2 years ago that my husband has squirreled away in the liquor cabinet – but I do think we place too many wonderful things in the “decadent” category.
So here is my recommendation: take a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, head down to the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market and spend a few minutes in front of the cases at Gourmandises Avenue Chocolaterie. Trust me – the desire to treat yourself will be overwhelming.
