Canadian chef and TV personality Ken Kostick has died, according to a statement issued Saturday by his business team.
The Winnipeg native was best known for hosting What’s For Dinner? on CBC with co-host Mary Jo Eustace. The show featured the pair playfully bickering through their cooking efforts.
Kostick died Thursday at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, the statement said. It said Kostick had successfully battled acute pancreatitis before his health took a turn for the worse earlier this month.
Kostick was 57.
As well as working in TV and radio, including a stint on a morning show on the Pride FM radio station, Kostick wrote a number of best-selling cook books. He most recently appeared in He Said, She Said with Ken & Mary Jo.
“Ken lived a full and wonderful life, with many passions including, food, pets and people,” the statement said.
