A Day Off with Chuck Hughes – Cooking Demonstration at AFC Studio

HFB had a surreal up-close and personal encounter with Chef Chuck Hughes of Chuck’s Day Off on the Asian Food Channel.

You see, HFB has always been a huge fan of the television programme and it somehow felt strange, in a nice way, to see his supposed tv idol come alive.

Chef Chuck Hughes was so approachable and really funny, and the crowd was thoroughly entertained by both his humour and his cooking skills.

There’s also no denying of Chef Chuck Hughes’ passion for food – so intensely, he has his favourites ingredients tattooed on his arms – bacon, lemon meringue pie, lobster and arugula leaves just to name a few! How sexy is that?!?

His most defining moment of his career was when he walked into the Iron Chef’s Kitchen Stadium in New York City and became the youngest Canadian chef to win the popular show, Iron Chef America.

With his delicious lobster recipes, he became the only Canadian chef to beat the legendary (not anymore...heh) Chef Bobby Flay (No wonder HFB never like Bobby Flay’s show, heh).

For his cooking demonstration, he presented three dishes – Jerk Atlantic Lobster (Yes, this is THE winning dish that wow the judges at Iron Chef America), Pan-seared Canadian Beef Carpaccio with Potato Chips, Fried Capers and Lemon Aioli, and Chocolate Tapioca Arancini. HFB’s verdict: really simple yet yummy – the perfect HFB kind of food.
