Digby Scallop Days - 43th year for this Event.

The Digby Scallop Days run from August 11 - 13, 2017 in Digby Nova Scotia. As you know, every chef loves scallops. From yours truly to Gordon Ramsay, cooking the perfect scallop is tantamount to paradise on a plate.  This is the longest running festival on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, celebrating the scallops, the scallop fishing industry and the people who brave the highest tides in the world to harvest them. Three days of family friendly events and food in the Scallop Capital of the World. If you want more information click here.

How to get there.

You can get to Digby very easily. On the Highway about 2 hours from Halifax, on the 101 Highway, and 4 hours on the 103/101. From New Brunswick you can take the ferry from Saint John to Digby.  Once in Digby, you can park and walk almost anywhere in the downtown core.

I'm Going to Cook Scallops

Ever wonder what a scallop look like? What parts do you eat? You will be able to see the pro's shuck a scallop and put it right on the grill for some delicious scallop rolls. The Digby Scallop Days BBQ takes place from 11 am til 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Admiral's Walk next to the Lighthouse. I've been invited to join the folks and cook some scallops from 11:00 til 1:00 on Saturday.  I can't wait.  I'll also take some time to learn how to shuck an oyster, without cutting my hands off, and visit the fleet.  All with my video camera in hand.  If you visit my Family Personal Chef video channel on Youtube, and subscribe, you'l get notified when I upload the video.  Just click here.

See you in Digby Next weekend!
