Cooking Up an RV Adventure on Food Network Canada’s new Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip
Follow celebrity chefs Chuck Hughes and Danny Smiles as they take to the road in a fifth-wheel RV to cook up tantalizing dishes from some of the country’s amazing local foods.
Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday the Montreal-based chefs travel coast to coast meeting local farmers, fishermen and foragers and cooking up a storm, both in the RV and around the campfire, and having lots of fun along the way. What better way to experience Canada’s stunning landscapes and diverse food offerings and with two of the 6 episodes right here in British Columbia.
The first BC stop is in the second episode on March 10 (the show’s premier episode aired March 3) when Chefs Chuck & Danny take their road trip to Vancouver Island for some Island Time. After setting up camp in Goldstream Provincial Park, not far from the British Columbia capital Victoria, and armed with good advice from local Cowichan Valley Chef Dan Hudson, Chuck & Danny go looking for grass-fed chicken, local seafood and more. Donning wet suits and diving into the ocean, the two chefs try their hand at seaweed harvesting and eating freshly caught sea urchins right on the boat. Then back to the campsite to cook up a feast.
Salt of the Earth
Next it’s over to Salt Spring Island to experience the Salt of the Earth. In this BC episode, which airs March 17, local Chef Brooke Winters who believes in providing local organic food to people in a fresh and affordable way, provides Chuck & Danny with the low down on the very best local vegetables and country’s finest lamb. Chuck tries his hardest to catch a salmon which manages to elude him, but an unexpected catch makes for an excellent Salt Spring seafood feast for the locals.
The fifth-wheel for this trip was provided by Sunwest RV in collaboration with Go RVing Canada. According to Chris Mahony, President of Go RVing Canada, who tagged along for the west coast leg of Chuck and Danny’s RV travels on Vancouver Island, “Chuck and Danny truly embrace the camping lifestyle in this series and experienced RV living during their journey,” recalls Mahony. “And there may have been a few friendly bets and fun chirps between the chefs calling dibs on who got the luxury king-size bed vs. the cozy pull-out sofa in the RV!”
If you love camping and cooking make sure you watch Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip and experience some of the best scenery and freshest ingredients provided by local farmers, fishermen and foragers that Canada offers from coast-to-coast. An impressive and delicious RVing and cooking adventure.
