Season 2, Episode 9

Land of Cod

The easternmost city in North America, St. John's, Newfoundland, sits right where Arctic currents meet the warm Gulf Stream. That combination produces some nasty weather, the greatest fishing ground the world has ever known and some killer restaurants all located on Water Street. And that means good eating for Chuck Hughes. At Aqua, chef Mark McCrowe bakes speckled trout, stuffed with shrimp and topped with lemon-caper beurre noisette and lobster meat. Chef Jeremy Charles blends rustic and refined at Raymonds, where he and Chuck place pan-seared diver scallops and parsnip puree in the scallop shell and drizzle it with sea urchin beurre blanc. It's back to basics, Newfie-style, at The Ship Pub where chef Dianne Glass makes moose bourguignon with toutons (a traditional fried-bread pancake). Last, Chuck meets ninth-generation Newfoundlander Jason Brake, chef at restaurant and boutique hotel, Blue on Water, for tea ... tea made with fish.
