Nova Scotia is one of Canada's three Maritime provinces. Nova Scotia holds a lot of historical sites. Quite a few well known singers originate from Nova Scotia such as Anne Murray, Rita MacNeil, April Wine, Sarah McLachlan just to name a few!!

This is a rich chowder packed with plenty of lobster. It can be served in small cups for a very special first course or in larger bowls as the centerpiece of an informal supper. The sour cream adds an unexpected and delicious tartness.
