About Chuck Hughes
Chuck is the co-owner and executive chef of Montreal hot-spot Garde Manger. He is also the talented star of such shows as Chuck’s Day Off, Chuck’s Week Off, Chuck’s Eat the Street and Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip. His unbridled passion for entertaining translates into both memorable food and captivating television.
After going to culinary school and working in some of Montreal’s best restaurants, he partnered with his two best friends and opened Garde Manger to rave reviews and packed seating.
Since 2010, Chuck and the team at Crown Salts cater the VIP Artist World at Osheaga, Montreal’s renowned 3- day music and arts festival. Every year Chuck and his team create an unforgettable dining experience for the over 100 appearing bands at the festival.
Some of the other highlights of Chuck’s celebrity cooking career include becoming the youngest Canadian chef to win on Iron Chef America; starring with nine other celebrity chefs on The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs; joining an all-star panel of judges on Chopped Canada and starring in five Quebec series À couteaux tirés, La Relève, Le monde selon Chuck, L’atelier culinaire, and Bienvenue chez Chuck. He also produced two best-selling cookbooks for Harper Collins Canada, “Garde Manger” and “Chuck’s Day Off.”
In 2015, he launched a line of highly anticipated food products. My Kitchen Staples are delicious essential items such as olive oils, vinegars, cocktail sauce, maple syrup and antipastos that Chuck uses in both his restaurants and at home.
My Kitchen Staples are currently available in stores across Canada. Go to www.chuckhughes.ca to find the nearest one.
