Kary found her way around a kitchen at a very young age. She was the little kid that ran around her parents Ukrainian Deli trying to help everyone. When her Mom started a catering company, all she wanted to do was help. She’d roll Swedish meatballs, wash and peel all the vegetables and wrap the trays for the parties. After school she would love to come home, sit at the edge of the kitchen island and watch her mom make dinner — that’s where she learned her favourite cooking tips and tricks.
Although she loved to cook, she really didn’t realize how much until she went away to University. She lived with a group of friends and loved to cook for them. So much so, she stopped going to class — fashion marketing was no longer her thing. Her passion really ignited when she started teaching her friends the basics of cooking — and that’s when she was hooked. She loved watching the enjoyment on her friends faces when cooking started to make sense. That’s when the bug to have her own cooking show started.
Kary would stay up all night reading cookbooks, taking cooking science and theory courses at culinary school, and volunteering at a local butcher shop — she wanted to know everything she could so she’s have more to teach. In 2009, she landed her first cooking show BEST RECIPES EVER on CBC, a daily cooking show that teaches the basic fundamentals of cooking. Kary became an instant hit!
