Chuck Hughes is the star of Food Network Canada’s and The Cooking Channel’s (US) “Chuck’s Day Off”, a show featuring the charismatic chef cooking for friends and family on his day off at one of his Montreal restaurants, Garde-Manger. Fabulously energetic, fun and a skilled chef, Chuck definitely has star quality and “splash factor”. His star is on the rise in the US: “Chuck’s Week Off” and “Chuck’s Eat the Street”, along with “Chuckmas” (Chuck’s Christmas special) are all popular shows on The Cooking Channel; he took down Bobby Flay in Iron Chef competition, and was one of the participants in The Next Iron Chef in 2012.
The cookbook features recipes from his restaurant and his show, and they are down-to-earth but festive, yet never fussy. What’s wonderful about the book is the energy the design brings-it matches Chuck’s own style and approach to cooking and to life. One can only assume this is the first of many cookbooks from Chuck Hughes.
The French edition of Garde Manger won a silver medal at Taste Canada in 2012.
