We spoke with Meghan Cole of the Canadian Press recently about cooking at home -- with gas. Here are some excerpts from the story that appeared in the Calgary Herald.

“People are becoming better cooks because of the food networks,” says John Jackson, co-owner and co-chef of Calgary’s Charcut Roast House. “Cooking is fun and trendy. Homeowners are learning about different ingredients and are trying different things. The more homeowners expand their culinary interests, the more need they have for similar setups as a professional kitchen.”

As a chef, picking a stovetop and oven for his home was as important as choosing one for work.

Jackson says because he was trained to cook with a gas cooktop, and is used to using it, he wanted to have a gas stove at home.

“I’m a chef so obviously I have a particular preference,” he says. “Basically I have cooking with gas worked out to a science, and I didn’t want to adapt to another form of cooking.”

Jackson says the reason he prefers gas is that it provides instant heat, and the cook is able to see how high the heat is because of the flame.

Chicago Tribune and CHARCUT's Edge

Chicago Tribune and CHARCUT's Edge

The Chicago Tribune's Josh Noel took a trip through Calgary and came away with a culinary take on the city that may surprise people who've taken a while to visit. CHARCUT took the lead and upped its cred with this positive review from one of America's most-read travel journalists and culinary trendspotters, Noel. He writes: 

"Among the reigning darlings of Calgary dining is ... Charcut which serves an ambitious menu of smart, modern comfort food. Its arugula and tuna conserva, served with shaved celery and lemon preserve, was tangy and bright, while the poutine was devilishly decadent. The steak cut, and preparation, changes regularly. And the pig's-head mortadella is the most complex and comforting cold cut imaginable. Throw in a clever cocktail list and sumptuous dessert menu, and you have a memorable evening. ."
