Meet Our Kitchen Team

Chef Nelson Penner

Chef Nelson Penner started his culinary career at Kingstec Community College under the tutelage of Chefs Don Mailman and Werner Bassen. From there he went on to work in numerous restaurants in the province most prominently at the Blomidon Inn with Chef Sean Laceby.

In the spring of 2009 the Penners bought the Rising Sun Health Food store which featured an existing kitchen and dining area. With some upgrades to the kitchen and revamping of the dining room the Black Trumpet Cafe was born. The Black Trumpet Cafe was voted runner up in best restaurant outside Halifax in 2011 by Bill Spurr, Chronicle Herald.

Nelson can often be found foraging the wilds of Nova Scotia in search of nature’s culinary bounty, and usually features a dish or two on his menus, based on his finds.


Donna Jackson

DONNA JACKSONDonna Jackson’s culinary experience began long before she started working at the Blomidon Inn, almost 10 years ago. As the daughter of a former cook in the Navy, and the mother of three children, she has always enjoyed cooking meals for her family and friends. Pictured here, to the left, is Donna baking at home with her grandson, during the holidays.

Donna began her career in the culinary field, attaining employment as a cook at a local restaurant, as well as managing and cooking at a local café. Donna has always been known for coming up with new ideas and doesn’t always care to follow an original recipe; as she enjoys experimenting in the kitchen. She appreciates the use of fresh, local ingredients as much as possible when cooking; and says that the Blomidon Inn’s desserts, especially the cheesecakes, are some of her favorite items on the menu to make. Since joining the Blomidon Inn’s culinary team, Donna said she has learned many new skills from former Inn chef Sean Laceby.
