Mark first developed a respect and passion for food at home where his father was the family’s primary cook. Despite having spent much of his formative years sweating over grills and prep stations; he still has a love for kitchens and the culinary arts. Some of Mark’s favourite things are his pots, pans and various kitchen gadgets. Known affectionately as Mr. Stitches, Mark is also fond of his collection of knives, which he frequently uses to nip the end of his fingers with - so be careful if he makes you a “red sauce”.
Mark has observed how many fellow artists and designers share a passion for creating, discovering and enjoying good food and wine. He compares cooking to fine art,
with the palate serving as canvas and fresh ingredients as paint. Interested
in all aspects of the culinary arts, Mark travels as often as possible, exploring
different cultures and their cuisine with the joy of discovery. Favourite food
style so far? Anything Asian. Or French. Or, wait, Italian.
