Chef Mark is an amazing chef and host. Be prepared to laugh while learning how to cook delicious food. His Curried Fruit Couscous and Beef Lettuce Wraps were my favorite. I highly recommend taking his cooking class.

Chef Mark was awesome. My mother, sister, and I took his Vietnamese cooking class, and we learned a lot about both food culture and technique. It's clear he has a real passion for food and cooking. Highly recommend his class. 5 stars!

Chef Mark was so much fun to work with and also just an all around great person. We learned a lot and the food was absolutely incredible! It was such a unique experience to go into a chef’s home and have an intimate cooking class with my mom and brother. I HIGHLY recommend this as a fun night with a couple friends, family or even a date night! Thank you Chef Mark for a wonderful time!
