Another new big addition is the live Master Chef Face Off, Cape Breton’s own black box reveal where seven chefs will compete for the Right Some Good Master Chef title. A popular cooking competition on TV now comes to Right Some Good.

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.
