I’m going to start it off with a favorite food of mine that I only just recently found out was a food specific to Nova Scotia. It seems like such a simple food and I was surprised when friends visiting from out of town had no idea what I was talking about. Of course I then forced all of them to try these delicious garlic fingers.

In this photo Candice, Andy, Carlo and Jeannie are all enjoying garlic fingers at a favorite place of mine in called called Rogues Roost, but garlic fingers from anywhere, even cooked in your own stove can be amazing when done just right.

Best eaten with donair sauce another Nova Scotian favorite (not to be confused with doner, kebabs or anything else like that) here is a great recipe for you to make your very own garlic fingers from scratch:
