Mary Berg—winner of MasterChef Canada and star of Mary’s Kitchen Crush—shares her most delicious, stress-free recipes, grand enough for special celebrations and easy enough for a regular Tuesday night.
Everyone knows that a good party always ends up in the kitchen, whether you’re grabbing a drink, tasting a dish, or just chatting with the host and other guests. That’s because the kitchen is the heart of every home, big or small. But sometimes entertaining (even casually) can feel daunting or overwhelming, with all the planning, shopping, cooking, and clean up. Enter Mary Berg…
In her first book, TV star and home cook Mary Berg is here to banish any anxiety about preparing food for the people you love. All of Mary’s recipes are meant to be laid down on a table that is groaning under the weight of delicious food and relaxed elbows. Kitchen Party is filled with Mary’s family-style favorites for brunches, dinners, and special occasions—along with some of her famous baked goods and desserts, of course.
Whether you’re cooking for a big crowd of friends or hosting a romantic dinner for two, Mary is here to guide you using the warmth and cooking skills that have already made her a beloved voice of encouragement for all types of home cooks.
MARY BERG is the winner of MasterChef Canada season 3, and the star of Mary’s Kitchen Crush, as well as a cooking expert on CTV’s Your Morning, The Social, and The Marilyn Denis Show.
After degrees in history, English, and information studies, Mary detoured into a career in insurance for 5 years, before being convinced by her family to audition for MasterChef Canada and ultimately stealing the show!
She has since launched her cooking career full time, and never looked back. Mary lives and cooks in Toronto. Her first word was “cheese.”
