Due to an overwhelming amount of requests, we’re launching our second event with Mary! If you missed out on a ticket to the literary brunch, or if baking for a crowd feels daunting or overwhelming for you, join us at the Literary Cafe where a plate of desserts will be awaiting you at your table!

During this two-hour event, Mary Berg, MasterChef Canada winner, star of Mary’s Kitchen Crush, and author of Kitchen Party will share her insider tips for stress-free cooking. Whether it’s the planning, shopping, cooking, or clean up, during this afternoon cafe, you’ll learn how to banish anxiety about preparing food. Guests will be treated to an intimate onstage interview and Q&A with Mary, a copy of the $32 Kitchen Party book, a gift bag courtesy of Bradshaw’s, desserts inspired by some of Mary’s favourite recipes, and a meet-and-greet and book signing!

About the author

MasterChef Canada winner and star of Mary’s Kitchen Crush, Mary Berg Mary is a beloved voice of encouragement for all types of home cooks. She’s also 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.”

About the book

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, and Kitchen Party is filled with Mary’s family-style favourites for brunches, dinners, and special occasions–along with some of her famous baked goods and desserts, of course.

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. You’ll find over 100 simple, straightforward and mouthwateringly-good recipes for dishes like Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast Bake with Apple Cinnamon Syrup; Ricotta, Roasted Grapes and Hazelnut Tartines; Flank Steak with Horseradish Cream; and Slablova (aka Pavlova for a Crowd). And with Mary’s tips and suggested menu pairings for multiple occasions, from Mother’s Day Brunch to a Low-Key Bridal Shower, you’ll never find yourself short of ideas.

“There’s nothing like a good kitchen party to make you feel excited and at ease at the same time as you eat, and Mary is the definition of charming party host in this delectable book. You will revel in her stories and photos, which bring you right into the kitchen with her, feeling like you’re part of the party and ready to jump in and cook.”
—Anna Olson

“The dream is to be able to cook food we love. Mary is so creative and so full of joy that we are filled with happiness every time we crack open this book and get to work. It’s one of the best ways for us to wind down together.”
—Ben and Jessica Mulroney
