Host, You Gotta Eat Here!

John Catucci may not be a chef, but he knows a great burger when he eats one! In fact, just talking about the food featured on You Gotta Eat Here! gets John all worked up.

This talented actor-singer-comedian discovered a love for performance as a member of York University’s Vanier College Productions. It was there that he met and teamed up with David Mesiano to form the award winning musical comedy duo, The Doo Wops. What else would a couple of singing Italian-Canadians call themselves? John has also been a member of The Second City Touring Company, where he honed the improv skills he now displays in restaurant kitchens across our country. But John is undaunted as he persists in the pursuit of perfectly-made comfort food.

Canadians Sure Love to Barbecue, Eh?

My friends, you don't have to freeze -- or move across the country -- to eat barbecue all year-round. When sun-starved Canadians crave that nostalgic taste of summer in the bleary winter months, all we have to do is turn to our favourite local barbecue joint. Problem solved.

You Gotta Eat Here, But You Have to Get Here First

This coming season, in Churchill, MB, we visit the Tundra Inn and Pub, where they specialize in Northern comfort food like elk pie. It's the farthest distance we've travelled for the show; it took us two days to get there, but it was totally worth it.

Canadian Restaurants Have a Way of Making You Feel Right at Home

The most rewarding part of my job is all the great people I get to meet. Wait -- it's the food. And also, all the great people I get to meet. I am so lucky to have developed terrific relationships with the restaurant owners we've filmed with over these last three seasons. These folks have become like an extended family to me.

From Coast to Coast, Canada's Burgers Can't Be Beat

When you eat as many burgers as I do, you become thankful for the creativity and ingenuity of chefs across Canada. Canadian restaurants are busy flipping the classic burger on its head. From coast to coast to coast, they take the art of burger making to the next level. As the host of You Gotta Eat Here!, my taste buds are consistently spoiled.
