I am a repeat client and worked with Chef Mark for a dinner party for my husband’s 40th birthday. Everything was phenomenal! He worked with me on planning a menu around my husband’s preferences and important memories in our relationship, such as paying homage to noodles we had on our honeymoon with his own unique twist. I appreciate his willingness to test and iterate on recipes prior to the event to ensure that each dish is memorable and in line with our shared vision. He incorporates ingredients that are affordable and accessible, which makes the dining experience all the more enjoyable knowing that these are sublime dishes that I can venture to recreate on my own with his easy to understand explanations and down to earth approach to plant based cooking. He is warm and easy to communicate with and always responds to my questions and requests. I really enjoy working with Mark and look forward to indulging in more of his delicious cooking the next time we have a special occasion to celebrate 🎉

Mark catered food for more than 25 guests for my birthday and it was wonderful. From the initial conversation to the day of the event Mark was very easy to work with, quick to respond to any questions. The menu had dishes from all around the globe, indian, italian, japanese, etc… and the result was better than I could have imagined, rich in flavor and beautiful. My guests were impressed, and liked the opportunity to chat with Mark as he was preparing the food. I highly recommend working with Mark!

If you're questioning if Chef Mark is the right person for you, think no further! Mark is the best of the best and I'll tell you why. Backstory: I was stressed to the max trying to plan my sisters bachelorette party in San Fran and I wanted to make sure we had a special event planned but most importantly good food. After I connected with Mark, he laid out the next steps on how to organize the meal for my sisters party which was super helpful. He quickly provided a variety of options on what we could have for the meal and gave me time to see if it would work with the group! When we landed on a curated menu (vegan tacos!) Mark just ran with it, in preparation for the day. When the day arrived - he provided updates on his eta and he was very much on time. Not only did he prepare a meal for 10 girls, he had to figure out a wonky airbnb oven, which is no small feat! We absolutely loved the energy he brought to our group and the food was absolutely delicious. The best part would be that Mark would take the time to explain what he was making and with what he was using. We learned a lot, like vegan food can be delicious! This was the highlight of our trip and we all would gladly go back immediately to SF and rebook Chef Mark if we could!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • Mexican / Latin American • Asian • Indian • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Halal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.
