That time Chef Chuck Hughes taught me how to cook

I’m not a great chef. But I’m trying to be. In fact I’ve made the decision lately that it isn’t too late to learn to cook, improve my tidying skills, de-clutter my house and truly reclaim my home.

Recently I had the opportunity to visit the LG Kitchen in the Chatelaine offices, where I spent the afternoon with celebrity Chef Chuck Hughes and Rick Campanelli, or if you grew up in the 90s in Canada like I did, you’d know him as Rick-The-Temp.

I walked in, looked around and thought, “Be cool Joanna, no one has to know that you are a terrible chef.” It turned out that I wasn’t expected to cook, but instead Chef Chuck Hughes would be teaching us three delicious meals. Dodged that one!

In the midst of learning how to create a delicious spin on bruschetta by grating your tomatoes, yes, you heard me right,

By a simple two knocks, it is easy to check on the items through the transparent window without opening the door.

and LG QuadWash® with TrueSteam® dishwasher.

High-temperature steam removes baked-on, caked-on food from your dishes, sanitizes and reduces excess water spots.

It was an amazing afternoon spent with some very talented and amazing people.
