It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…Chuckmas

Chuckmas Turkey

Chuck Hughes has had a big year. After continuing to run a successful restaurant day in and day out, moving into a new house and still finding time to shoot cooking shows on his days off, most people would be ready to curl up for a long winter’s nap. But not Chuck! This year, he’s cooking up a brand new holiday celebration: Chuckmas.

Chuck Highes Turkey

Too bad Chuck never has any fun in the kitchen.

Chuck’s passion for food, family and friends never fades, and the Christmas season is no exception. This year, he is hosting his first ever Christmas dinner with the help of his girlfriend Sabrina (sorry, ladies – he’s taken!).

Chuck and Sabrina blend his French-Canadian background with her Russian and Jewish heritages to create new traditions of their own. And while Sabrina is in charge of decor and ambiance,  Chuck makes some of the most delicious holiday dishes you’ve ever tasted.

Catch Chuckmas tonight at 8PM.  Here’s a peek at what Chuck has in store…

How about a bubbly Cranberry, Orange and Prosecco Cocktail to get the party started?
