‘My wife set up a private one to one cooking class for my birthday. This was extra special as the class took place in my own kitchen using a combination of both Mark’s and our tools. Mark created an awesome three-course menu, brought high quality food and wine. I consider myself a relatively good cook but Mark’s techniques and skills were impressive, I learnt so much and had a lot fun too. I felt like I was cooking with a friend. Thank you,Mark.’ Glenn Coleman, cooking lesson, July 2016.

Home made and perfectly fresh ingredients. Thank you!’ Rilke Ballero, Mudchute Park and Farm, September 2017.
‘We organised a dinner as part of a hen do ‘glamping’ weekend and Mark was absolutely great. He cooked using the fire pit and utensils which were there and did an amazing job with limited equipment! The food was delicious and just what we wanted, perfect for the situation. Mark took our suggestions on board and incorporated them as requested. Presentation was also great.’ Victoria Bark, outdoor dinner, Surrey, July 2017

I’ve never had a chef cook for me in my own home before and the process was really easy – Mark arrived, set up and got on with everything seamlessly while we enjoyed the evening. The wines he paired to the courses were also a really nice treat.’ Luke Brodie, engagement dinner party, Southwark, April 2016.

We have saved your details for the future when we have another party as we would love you to come again.’ Jimmy and Mike, civil partnership celebration, Wandsworth, August 2015.
