We had a wonderful night with Ched Mark! My husband and I, recently exploring the world without meat and dairy, thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make this meat-free Bolognese sauce. Chef Mark was super accommodating with our annoying vegan restrictions and offered great information on how to incorporate flavor into our cooking. His house is beautiful and very inviting. Truly an unforgettable experience!
