Ken Kostick, Mary Jo Eustace return

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
4 p.m.

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?

  9. have to write and tell you that I’m THRILLED that Mary Jo Eustace and Ken Kostick are back in the cooking show business with “He Said, She Said”. These two have become almost a cultish-classique, and let me tell you, cooking show fans have been known to go hunting around the internet for full length “What’s for Dinner” episodes. With the new show, all we have to do is wait for the DVDs! These two characters are priceless; hats off to W-TV for putting them back on the air. Huge fan of Mary Jo’s humour!

  10. Hi, just found Whats for Dinner this summer and LOVE it. I’m a big fan
    from the States – Michigan. These two are priceless – comedy and
    cooking are my two favorites. Not sure if we can get the W Network
    we watch on CBC since we live near Windsor Ont. Hope to see the
    new show someday. Thanks, A Big Fan from the US.

  11. I am from Northern Minnesota and enjoyed watching your program whats for dinner on the CBC channel. Will you be available on the CBC in the future? Good luck on your new show.

  12. I have been watching reruns of what’s for Dinner? this august/08 & was wondering where one can get copies of your episode recipes?
    i.e. episode 4.065 feta fetish pasta (gnocchi).
    Thanks in advance.

  13. He Said She Said is the best ! Mary Jo and Ken, you are so terrific together. I laugh more on your cooking show than when I watch most sitcoms !

  15. I really think the both of you are so great! We have a mutual connection that brings back bad memories….but I have enjoyed watching you both for so many years that I put it behind me and still dig your shows!!! Truly entertaining!!!

  16. Hi Mary Jo and Ken

    Your barbecue Ribs looked fabulous but I have a problem with the preparation, I am a Food Safe Freak and heard you say you could not use the same brush again. Then when the ribs were done you used the same sauce that you contaminated with the first brush. It is a well known fact that crosscontamination of any raw food can spell disaster. Is that really the way you teach people to cook.
    Just curious if this a food safe issue? Oh ya, go easy on Kenny! :>)

  17. Does anyone know where (online or otherwise) Ken’s Miracle Soup Pot can be purchased??????
    Please help!!

  18. To the both of you: I faithfully watched “What’s for Dinner”, great recipes, great hosts and great laughs! The “great hosts” part was my favorite obviously. To the both of you, Ken and Mary Jo you rock!! So glad to see you back..cheers Michele

Because of my work schedule, I’m never home to see them, and it’s very upsetting because I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to see them. You guys are totally awesome. I’ve been busy turning new people on to you. One of the best kept secrets in Canada. You Rock!!!

    Do you still have a cooking show and please tell us on which channel so we can see in in Eastern Ontario.

    We love you both!

  27. Dear Ken and MaryJo
    I know this little note is late but I want to say I have been watching what’s for Dinner since it first aired then I started watching He said She said both shows are awesome I have followed some of the recipes and wow I could not believe how well I did . Both of you are great , the humour ,the jokes and the come backs with one another I watched it today which is October the 10 2013 , I seen something today on the web of cbc about Mr Kostic , it really shocked me is it true that he passed this aweek or so ago
    Thank you
    Dee Reyonlds
    of Nova scotia
    ps if this is true I send my prayers and thoughts to his family
    and to you Ms Eustace

    1. Unfortunately, it’s true. Mr. Kostic passed away in April 2011 from pancreatitis he was 57. But he will live on through his cookbooks & repeats of the show.
