Chuck Hughes’ Tomato and Prosciutto Tart


  
         As regular readers know, we’re big fans of the Canadian Chef Chuck Hughes, whose recipes we’ve shared here before and whose Le Bremner restaurant was one of the highlights of last fall’s culinary adventures in Montreal.  His food is uncomplicated, fresh as can be and his personality is truly winning.  So when I decided to make lunch the other day and one of his recipes came to mind, I jumped on it.

To Montreal again and to Iron Chef Chuck Hughes' newest hit “Le Bremner” plus his incredible recipe for Beef Short Ribs with Cambozola




  
         Andrew and I felt as if we already knew Chuck Hughes before we even arrived at his latest Montreal venue, “Le Bremner”  (361 Rue St. Paul East, Montreal H2Y 1H2 Tel: 514-544-0466 ) in the heart of Old Montreal.  We’d been following Chuck for months on his Cooking Channel Show “Chuck’s Day Off”.  The premise, if you haven’t had the pleasure, is that Chuck, a extremely affable (and extremely attractive) chef invites all manner of people he knows to eat a lunch he’s prepared specifically for them at his other Montreal hot spot, “Le Garde Manger” (408 Rue St. Francois Xavier, Tel:514-687-5044).  We get to watch the cooking. His guests ranging from his fellow amateur Hockey team players to the local firemen to the guy who delivers the linen to the restaurant get to do the eating.  It’s great television cooking because Chuck exudes energy and passion and infuses his cooking with ‘lick the screen’ dishes you salivate over just watching.  To say that Andrew and I both had mancrushes on Chuck would likely be an understatement.  And meeting him up close and personal just sealed the deal.
