Mary Jo Eustace

Food and Lifestyle Expert

Mary Jo Eustace’s passion for celebrating food was triggered at any early age after one-too-many pork chop dinners thrown on the table by her time-starved mother. Luckily, her father, a gourmet chef, introduced her to a culinary wonderland on the weekends–fresh lobster, truffles, Baked Alaska and her favorite pastry encrusted escargot.

Armed with a varied palette, Mary Jo attended McGill University, eating her way through Montreal. She followed graduation with a successful career in TV and the modeling industry. Fueled by her obsession with food, she went back to school to get a culinary degree, which launched a successful 20-year career based on her passion.

A two-time Gemini Award nominee for best lifestyle host, Mary Jo has starred in, produced, and created over 600 episodes of cooking shows. Her first show, What’s for Dinner, was a cult classic and remains on air in syndication. Mary Jo and her diminutive co-host, Ken Kostick, bantered and bickered their way into people’s hearts and kitchens. Their second show, He Said, She Said, created by Mary Jo, highlighted the hosts making one ingredient two different ways and bickering over the results. Her programs have played on The Food Network, HGTV, OWN, CBC, Global and The Life Network.

A celebrated author, Mary Jo has penned four bestselling cookbooks: What’s for Dinner?, By My Side, and her most scandalous to date, The Cougar Cookbook: How To Cook for Your Cub. She’s also the author of the new book, Scared Wheatless, a memoir about her family’s journey into gluten-free eating after her daughter was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder. Lastly, she wrote a bestselling book on relationships called Divorce Sucks.

Always passionate about food, Mary Jo was the food expert on a national morning show in the United States. In that role, Mary Jo cooked and chatted with numerous celebrities from George Foreman to John Mayer.

When it’s not about food, Mary Jo has also fostered a passion for design. She was the host of TLC’s Diagnosis Redesign and appeared on Whose Design is it Anyway?, as a host for HGTV US.


Going Gluten Free

Mary Jo Eustace learned first-hand about going gluten free when her daughter was 17 years old and diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Her philosophy — if she can do it, anyone can do it — takes the fear away from eating this way.

Cooking: Fast, Fun, and Delicious

With over 700 episodes of cooking shows on her resume, the resident food expert on Canada AM for many years, and the author of three cookbooks, Mary Jo Eustace knows food inside out, and how to make cooking fast, fun and delicious. Her talk will inspire anyone with even a passing interest in the question, “what’s for dinner”?

Relationship Reboot After Divorce
