MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH makes its debut on CTV featuring Canada’s culinary sweetheart and MASTERCHEF CANADA Season 3 winner, Mary Berg, sharing delicious twists on home-cooked classics inspired by her family and friends.
For Mary, cooking and baking has long been the best way for her to express love to the people in her life, building a strong appreciation for the connective powers of beautiful, home-cooked food. In each episode of MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH, she demonstrates her culinary skill and creativity with three to four original recipes inspired by someone who has made a meaningful impact on her life. The resulting meal acts as an edible love letter for family members and close friends. The guests of honour join Mary when the meal is complete to reminisce and savor in the flavors she’s created.
Each dish is motivated by a story, and is always connected back to Mary’s special guest. With no food off limits, Mary applies her signature spin to staples spanning every cuisine imaginable. Memories of family trips to South Carolina spur a Southern feast; joie de vivre fuels a French-themed menu when Mary and a friend dream of jetting off to Paris. Mary even tackles tradition with her own festive take on holiday favourites. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, a sports game, or just expressing gratitude for a loved one, MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH is chock-full of recipes for every occasion.
As Mary prepares the meal, she guides viewers clearly through the recipe, offering up plenty of illuminating tips and take-aways. Grab a seat at Mary’s table and join in on the fun!
