Mary Berg, the 2020 Canadian Screen Award-winner for Best Host, Lifestyle, is back with a new batch of episodes of CTV’s MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH, the 2020 Canadian Screen Award winner for Best Lifestyle Program or Series. Canada’s culinary sweetheart joins the summer schedule Sundays at 7 p.m. ET/PT beginning Aug. 9 on CTV and everywhere CTV content can be found, as Berg serves up twists on classic dishes inspired by her family and close friends.
Following episodes of MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH is the new Bell Media Studios Original Series DOUBLE YOUR DISH at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV. Select episodes from the self-filmed cooking series hosted by real-life couple Chef Rodney Bowers and Bell Media Radio personality Meredith Shaw join the CTV schedule. A first of its kind in Canada, DOUBLE YOUR DISH helps viewers make the most of their meals by transforming one base recipe into two completely different dishes.
National best-selling cookbook author of Kitchen Party and MASTERCHEF CANADA winner Mary Berg cooks up new episodes as she creates original recipes inspired by family and friends who have made a meaningful impact on her life. Following each new episode, full written and video recipes featured on the show are available on CTV.ca, which includes a recipe hub highlighting all the delicious details behind Berg’s dishes. CTV.ca also features video extras “Mary in a Minute”, “Mary Crushes”, and “Mary’s Mantras” where Berg dishes on her tastiest meals and kitchen hacks. And from Apples to Zesters, Mary teaches fans her kitchen ABCs with “Mary’s ABCs”, found on CTV’s Instagram account.
MARY’S KITCHEN CRUSH returns with “Tuesday Night” airing Sunday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Tuesdays don’t have to mean take-out, even when entertaining guests midweek! When it’s burger night for her husband Aaron’s friends, Mary Berg impresses them with a no-fuss feast, serving up some juicy bison chorizo smash burgers. There is no meat without potatoes, and Mary’s deliciously warm potato salad packs a punch. As the cherry on top of this fast and flavourful meal, Mary serves up a sweet cherry ice cream sandwich.
