From a media release:
Canada’s hottest cooking couple is back! Production begins on He Said She Said with Ken & Mary Jo
Put on your oven mitts because Canada’s hottest cooking couple, Ken Kostick and Mary Jo Eustace, are back in the kitchen.
After five years and 600 episodes of What’s For Dinner, the much-loved duo have reunited with an all-new, fresh, funny and delectable half-hour cooking show on W Network called He Said, She Said with Ken & Mary Jo. Produced by Up Front Entertainment in association with W Network, the show premieres Wednesday, July 2 at noon and airs every Wednesday and Friday at noon and
In He Said, She Said with Ken & Mary Jo, the duo do their usual slicing and dicing of the food (and each other), as they banter on about everything from their relationships to wine to their daily lives. Each episode features Kostick and Eustace making two very different meals using one “star ingredient” that ranges in scope from mushrooms to yogurt to ketchup.
“It’s like a dream come true – or nightmare, depending on how you look at it – to be reunited with the most dependable attractive man I know. Too bad he’s taken and wears more make up than I do,” says Eustace.
“We’re together, we’re divorced, we’re together, we’re divorced. Working with that Man Woman is an emotional roller coaster,” counters Kostick.
During each of the 65 episodes, the pair also prepare one side dish each called the High 5 that uses only five easy ingredients. From time to time, special guests will drop in to spice up the kitchen and keep Kostick and
Eustace on their best behaviour.
Kostick and Eustace can also be heard every day on 103.9 Proud FM in Toronto as the hosts of the morning show What’s for Breakfast?
