Food: August 2012 Archives

There was no way Chuck Hughes was going to do Mexico on his usual "day off." So he took a week.
Chuck's Week Off premieres on the Food Network Canada on Tuesday, August 28th. The series is about the Montreal's chef's wild and tasty adventures in Mexico, from Barbacoa in Humantla to Chocolate Clams and Salsa in Loreto.
He came into studio to tell Sonali Karnick about his Mexican adventures.

The annual garlic festival in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue starts in less than an hour at the local farmers market. It's a day devoted to tasting, shopping and learning about garlic.
Local farmers will be selling their certified organic garlic bulbs.
The Great Garlic Dessert Challenge asks cooks to come up with a delicious garlic dessert - like last year's Triple Garlic Cheesecake, chosen for its 'garlicocity."
And there are workshops about garlic braiding, the curative powers of garlic -- and of course, cooking with garlic.
That last one is led by a woman known as Madame Taco at the farmers market.
Everywhere else, she's Patti Murphy. (photo, above, courtesy of Patti Murphy)
Elizabeth Robertson spoke with her about cooking with garlic and Patti gave us some of her favourite recipes. (For her delicious spicy Roasted Red Salsa, click on "Read More" to get the recipe! )Read more »
