We hope everyone is all caught up on the season premiere of Top Chef Canada. We sat down with this week’s guest judge, the one and only Chef Chuck Hughes, who talked to us about his childhood, his favourite dishes from the episode, and what he feels the contestants should bring to the competition.

Check it out!

We also put Chef Chuck Hughes In the Hot Seat to learn more about him outside of the kitchen. Find out how many tattoos he has, what he was like as a teenager and more!
