Through the campaign’s website,, Canadians can access Hughes’ recipes and instructional cooking videos. Hughes emphasizes turkey’s adaptability to various flavors and its availability in different cuts, such as breast, ground, and thighs, making it suitable for everyday meals.

Mark Hubert, President and CEO of Canadian Poultry and Egg Processors, expressed hopes that the digital ads will capture Canadians’ attention, inspiring them to incorporate turkey into their spring cooking repertoire.

For those seeking inspiration and cooking tips, offers a range of recipes by Chef Hughes, alongside turkey cooking techniques.
