Delicious Food Show


Chuck Hughes, Host of Food Network Canada’s Chuck’s Week Off

Chuck is the multi-talented star of Food Network Canada’s Chuck’s Week Off and the owner and chef of Montreal hot-spot, Garde Manger. His unbridled passion for entertaining translates into both unforgettable food and captivating television. Chuck loves food.  So much so his favourites are tattooed on his arms: bacon, lemon meringue pie, lobster and arugula just to name a few. After going to culinary school and working in some of the hottest restaurants in town he partnered with his two best friends and opened Garde Manger to rave reviews and packed seating.  In August 2011, he and his partners opened his second restaurant in Montreal – Le Bremner.

For Chuck, one of the highlights of the last few years took place when he walked into New York City’s Kitchen Stadium and became the youngest Canadian chef to win on Iron Chef America.  He also became the only Canadian chef to beat the legendary Bobby Flay.  Following that win, Chuck was asked to join nine other celebrity chefs including Robert Irvine and Anne Burrell to battle it out on season four of Food Network’s The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs.  Last year, Harpercollins Canada released his first English cookbook “Garde Manger” and it immediately became a best-seller.  This June, they released Chuck’s second cookbook based on his popular TV series Chuck’s Day Off, which airs weekdays at 11:30am ET/8:30am PT on Food Network Canada. Recently he launched DeepDishMTL, Canada’s first multi-chef recipe iPad/iPhone app, that features recipes from some of Montreal’s finest chefs and currently, his stars in Chuck’s Eat The Street, which airs on the Cooking Channel in the U.S.  Chuck will also be joining an all-star panel of expert judges on Chopped Canada, coming soon to Food Network Canada.

“This October 2013 I’ll be at Toronto’s Delicious Food Show, shaking hands, kissing babies and most importantly showing you how to whip up some mouth-watering meals.”
