Ken Kostick, star of various Canadian cooking shows including the long-running What’s for Dinner, has died from complications due to acute pancreatitis, at 57.
Kostick’s business manager and partner Desi Cabrera confirmed the untimely death at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto on April 21 in a statement online.
Cabrera said Kostick was survived by his long-time best friends Gill Humphreys and Mary Jo Eustace, co-host of What’s for Dinner, and his ‘kids’ Napoleon, Josephine, Hercules, Kasper and Mr.Bigglesworth.
Kostick’s TV cooking shows also included Ken Kostick and Company, Counter Top to Table Cuisine and the most recent project He Said, She Said with Ken & Mary Jo.
What’s for Dinner, produced by Breakthrough Films, bowed on the Life Network in 1995 and eventually passed the 600-episode milestone.
