Chuck Hughes, Star of Cooking Channel’s “Chuck’s Day Off,” Eats Roni Sue’s Pig Candy & Soler Pupusas & Loves Momofuku & Zak Pellacio’s Dungeness Crab

Montreal native Chuck Hughes wanted to be in a biker gang when he grew up.  He got the tattoos but he traded the motorcycle for the Cooking Channel Ice Cream Truck.  That’s how NYC Food Guy found the star of Cooking Channel’s “Chuck’s Day Off” two Saturdays ago, handing out free People’s Pops and chatting up all passersby about everything from his food-centric tattoos to his popular Montreal restaurant that is at the heart of his TV show.  He may be rolling on four wheels instead of two but he’s doing his best to bring the rock and roll spirit to the world of food.  Check out the video as I introduce Chuck to chocolate covered bacon and pupusas while he waxes poetic about his favorite NYC food.

Chuck’s Day Off airs Saturday at 2pm and Wednesday at 10PM only on the Cooking Channel

    Lawrence, another great video man! I finally made it to Red Hook two weeks ago and got stuffed with some Soler pupusas, roasted corn on the cob, cashew water and a Swingle from Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies. Between you and Serious Eats, I’m gonna chow down til the cows come home!

    BTW, do you know if there is an actual soccer (futbol) and baseball schedcule posted anywhere for the fields in Red Hook? I’d love to get a group of friends to go out there but I know they won’t go just for the food.

    Foodie,

    Thanks Mr. Blount.

    billyboy,
    Awesome man. Thanks for the love and the update. You are a seriously epic eater!
    I’m not sure about the football/baseball schedule. That’s a great question. They’re usually out there playing if its not raining. Who are you hanging out with that food’s not enough for?

    Foodude,
    Thanks for the love Jon.

    eatinqueens,
    This was unfortunately a one-time event but if you want to hit some food trucks, get out to the Red Hook Ball Fields!
