Cooking with Chef Mark was a fantastic experience. He is very knowledgeable about food and food preparation- everyone in our group learned at least a few things. Mark has a perfectly personality for this type of work- he goes with the flow and adjusts on the fly when required, but best of all, he ensures that everyone has a great time while making delicious food together.

Mark helped my daughter and I plan Christmas dinner and did a fabulous job. He helped us make the menu and brought prepared spices and even got us a deal on one of the items. I later had a lesson with him on plant based cooking and I learned a lot and he made some dishes I don’t normally like taste good! Thank you Mark!

Chef Mark is absolutely the best! My 7 and 8 year old thoroughly enjoyed his cooking classes at school. We especially loved our personal cooking lesson as a family in the comfort of our own kitchen. Chef Mark really inspires people of all ages to love cooking.

Mark is very professional and accommodating. His culinary skills are excellent, and the food he creates is thoughtful and inspired. He delivered on all our requests and exceeded our expectations. Mark will be a welcome addition to anybody looking for a private chef. His food is beautiful and nutritious, and he cares deeply about his work. He is dedicated to his craft, and actively welcomes feedback and opportunities for improvement. Beyond the food he creates, he is calm, kind, organized, and a pleasure to work with. I give Mark my highest recommendation to anyone considering working with him.
