A few years ago, Chuck and two friends decided to turn their love of good food into a business, opening Garde-Manger. Life has never been the same. Chuck hit the ground running, turning the restaurant into a hot Montreal hangout, becoming a television sensation with his shows Chuck' s Day Off and Chuck' s Week Off and a star of Canadian and Qu?b?cois cuisine. His shows now air to adoring fans in over twenty countries worldwide. Garde-Manger features recipes from Chuck' s shows and restaurant that are down-to-earth but festive, and never fussy. From sublime comfort food (beef short ribs with Cambozola, pan-roasted halibut with garden tomatoes, and rock shrimp risotto) to incredibly addictive treats (salt cod fritters with jerk mayonnaise, Chuck' s mom' s pecan pie, and the famous lobster poutine), Chuck Hughes' s cooking always hits the mark. What' s wonderful about the book is the energy of the design-- it matches Chuck' s own joie de vivre and his carefree approach to both cooking and life. All the best Garde-Manger recipes are collected here: they' re easy, they' re special, and they' re completely delicious. As Chuck says, " Amaaazing!"
