Food Network Canada’s new series Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip brings together two best buds – Chuck Hughes and Danny Smiles – on one epic Canadian culinary adventure. In this six-part series kicking off Friday, March 3 at 9 ET/PT, these two chefs hit the open road in a fully loaded RV visiting Canada’s most spectacular regions with stops at national parks from Vancouver Island to Prince Edward Island.
At each destination they have a wild time sourcing local ingredients, from bagging seaweed in wet suits to digging for quahogs, harvesting wild rice in a canoe or foraging for juniper on ATV’s. Chuck and Danny then take these ingredients and cook up an unforgettable campground feast for the local chefs, farmers and artisans that introduced them to the region’s bounty.
Off the road, Chuck Hughes and Danny Smiles are a Montreal-based culinary duo creating amazing dining experiences at Hughes’ critically acclaimed restaurant Le Bremner. This is Chuck Hughes’s return to Food Network Canada after appearing on the premiere season of Chopped Canada, and his series Chuck’s Day Off and Chuck’s Week Off. Danny Smiles was previously on the third season of Top Chef Canada, claiming the title of first runner up.
