This summer visitors can experience tastes from around the world at Right Some Good. Find your place at the table from August 18 to August 26, 2012, on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and experience Canada’s ultimate foodie adventure. This extraordinary island-wide celebration highlights all that is special about Cape Breton: its extensive quality ingredient offering, spectacular scenery and renowned down-home hospitality. This sophisticated innovative series of events brings world-class chefs from around the globe to showcase creative culinary practices and plate outstanding dinners.

Pearleen Mofford RIGHT SOME GOOD Event Founder“We are delighted to bring this incredible event back to Cape Breton. We know after last year’s success staging pop-up dining rooms in unexpected locations, is unlike any other culinary event anywhere else in the world. This shows an entirely new side of the Island and brings people from near and far to share in the foodie adventure,” says Pearleen Mofford, event founder. “This will give Cape Breton a chance to shine again and let the world see just how good our ingredients are to cook with and I can’t wait to see what the international chefs will come up with this year.”

Expect the unexpected at Right Some Good as it stages seven unique events in communities around the island named as the number one island destination in North America. Guests will dine in exquisite locations and feast on carefully prepared menus.


This year the event is adding a Right Some Good Marketplace to run over two days, a black box chefs competition and a reveal dinner where four international chefs will learn their ingredients in the morning, shop at the Right Some Good Marketplace and be teamed up with an extensive brigade to stage dinner the same night. This is Iron Chef Cape Breton style.

All host communities showcase natural beauty alongside the culture and heritage of the Island. The locations include Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre Arena, Le Noir Landing in Arichat, Keltic Lodge Resort and Spa in Ingonish, Cabot Links in Inverness, the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck and Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site, in Louisbourg.


“It’s great news for Cape Breton to host a culinary event of this calibre that brings together agriculture, industry and our rich culture is very exciting,” says Mary Tulle, CEO of Destination Cape Breton Association. “This creates opportunities for Cape Breton to ensure its place when it comes to culinary tourism, the one sector that continues to grow and expand. Right Some Good creates many opportunities for the island’s marketing to reach new travellers to come and visit all that is Cape Breton.”

Each event will be spearheaded by an innovative culinary team; consisting of a world-class international Chef, an inspired local Chef and a promising apprentice Chef. The custom menus will focus on ingredients that are indigenous to Cape Breton, creating a demand for local products and exposing suppliers to new local and international markets.


Competitions have already begun to select the finest apprentice Chefs from across Canada and the most innovative local chefs from around the Island. Applications can be found online at rightsomegood.ca.

    CHEF ALAIN BOSSE Right Some Good 2012“After experiencing the Right Some Good movable kitchen last year, I personally learned more in twelve days than what I’ve accumulated in a career,” said Alain Bosse, The Kilted Chef and this year’s International Culinary Director for Right Some Good.
