Fellow foodie friends, we’re in for a treat at this year’s Right Some Good pop-up series. From August 23 to August 31, 2013, we’ll be hosting yet another amazing group of world-renowned master chefs.
“We’re really excited about the calibre of chefs coming this August,” says Pearleen Mofford, event founder. “This year’s high-profile lineup will impress even the biggest food enthusiast. Our chefs include Michelin Star award-winning chefs, members of the association of the Bocuse d’Or, consultants in the Chaine des Rotisseurs, Rosette appointed and celebrity chefs.”
The culinary talent travelling to Cape Breton this August include:
- Chef Chris Bell (Antrim, North Ireland)
- Chef Martin Blunos (London, England)
- Chef George De Costa (Edmunston, Canada)
- Chef Daniel Galmiche (Stockcross, England)
- Chef Carl Heinrich (Toronto, Canada)
- Chef Achim Loppert (Frankfurt, Germany)
- Chef Dennis McIntosh (Runaway Bay, Jamaica)
- Chef Vicky Ratnani (Mumbai, India)
- Chef Andy Rea (Belfast, Ireland)
- Chef Michael Reidt (Miami, USA)
- Chef Gilles Troump (Lyon, France)
- Chef Patricia Yeo (Chicago, USA)
We’ve added a few interesting twists to this year’s festivities. Two culinary workshops will be led by award-winning American Chef Michael Reidt. The key tricks of the trade will be revealed in a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal and learn from a master in the business.
Another exciting addition is the live Master Chef Face Off, Cape Breton’s own black box reveal. A popular cooking competition on TV now comes to Right Some Good. Not knowing the food contents of the box prior to the event, each chef devises a main course from the black box by using only the foods the box contains. Considered the most challenging of culinary competitions, the Right Some Good Master Chef Face Off will demonstrate the creative talents of these world-class chefs live before an audience.
Detailed chef’s bios are now online at RightSomeGood.ca. Tickets will be on sale soon!
With nine days to go, Right Some Good 2012 is preparing to bring exclusive dining to Cape Breton by popping up at locations the public would least expect. After its widely successful campaign last year, pop-up dining is returning this year with new internationally renowned chefs being featured at varying venues from August 18 – 26, 2012. From the oceanside view at Le Noir Landing in Arichat to gazing at the stars on the roof top of Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck, fine dining and extraordinary entertainment will be popping up all around Cape Breton.
“We are very excited to be featuring six pop-up dining locations this year as venues across Cape Breton Island,” says Pearleen Mofford, event founder. “Pop-up dining is a way to bring the culture of Cape Breton alive for participants through feasting on top notch food at some of the Island’s most beautiful locations.”
Right Some Good participants will have the chance to experience the versatility and intricate skill level of these chefs who will produce the highest quality menus, each time in a unique setting. Pop-up dining is a short-lived dining event and growing trend across the globe. It provides chefs the chance to serve their most creative cuisine at exclusive and unconventional locations.
“It’s exciting to be part of this innovative culinary event,” says Matthew MacKenze, general manager, Keltic Lodge Resort and Spa located in Ingonish Beach. “After last year’s success, and the opportunity for our executive chef to be a part of the culinary brigade in 2011, it made our decision to surrender operations of our iconic Purple Thistle Dining Room for a night an easy one for us. Our entire culinary team is thrilled to have Chef Jolly taking the helm in our kitchen for a night. It will be a great night for our team and our guests.”
The pop-up dining locations for Right Some Good 2012 include:
Aug. 18 & 19, in Port Hawkesbury at the Civic Centre Arena
