Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

HAL­I­FAX — A Syd­ney chef will put his best dish for­ward at province-wide com­pe­ti­tion that cel­e­brates culi­nary ex­cel­lence. Ar­don Mof­ford, chef and owner of Gover­nors Pub and Eatery, is one of eight com­pet­ing chefs from across Nova Sco­tia in the 2015 Gold Medal Plates that will take place in Hal­i­fax in late Oc- to­ber. Among Mof­ford’s com­peti­tors are Thomas Carey, Pic­tou Lodge Beach Re­sort; David Haynes, the Press Gang Res­tau­rant and Oys­ter Bar in Hal­i­fax; and Martin Ruiz Salvador, Fleur de Sel in Lunenburg. The win­ner of the Hal­i­fax com­pe­ti­tion will move on to the Cana­dian Culi­nary Cham­pi­onships in Fe­bru­ary in Kelowna, B.C. The chefs will cre­ate dishes that will be pre­sented with a Cana­dian wine, beer or spirit of their choice. The event also in­cludes a silent auc­tion of rare wines and travel ex­pe­ri­ences. The culi­nary event, which will fea­ture a per­for­mance from Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy, also serves as a fundraiser for the Cana­dian Olympic Foun­da­tion.
