Tourism Nova Scotia is teaming up with The Food Network, as they're sponsoring one of their new shows, plus some local cuisine will be featured.

TNS is sponsoring Big Food Bucket List - the show features host and comedian John Catucci as he travels across North America - in search of highly recommended food he can check off his bucket list.

Three episodes of the show will feature Nova Scotia eateries with Sugar Moon Farm and The Canteen episodes airing this Fiiday and King of Donair on July 5th

Tanya Johnson is the marketing manager of Tourism Nova Scotia, and she tells NEWS 95.7 - Sugar Moon Farms is more than just maple syrup - as they have a log cabin restaurant on site

"They do these really cool chef nights where they bring in a celebrity chef, and do a whole maple themed restaurant dining night," explains Johnson. "They have lots of products there that are of the maple variety."

She adds the host, Catucci, really wanted to make sure he hit Dartmouth's The Canteen restaurant.

"We really wanted to showcase some local seafood, so The Crobster Roll which is a lobster roll featuring crab is one of the food dishes that the show will feature," says Johnson.

In addition, Johnson says the team at King of Donair is excited to show off Halifax's official food.

"They were so happy, they've been talking to us for a while about marketing the donair as a tourism product, so this was an opportunity that really aligned nicely with that partner," says Johnson.

Nova Scotia will also promote itself through commercials aired during the show - with provincial advertising also popping up on The Food Network's digital platforms.
