Could your stress-filled days use some stress-free meals?
Have you been putting off trying to eat a healthier diet because you don't know where to start?
Too busy to cook for yourself or your family?
Just don't like to cook?

Invite a natural foods chef, The Duke of Fork, into your home to answer the question, "What's for dinner?"

I offer meals customized to your individual tastes featuring a variety of healthful, plant-based ingredients prepared in your home.  Your refrigerator and freezer is fully stocked with meals that only need to be thawed and heated.  How simple is that?  It's a dream come true!

Let me take care of providing you with delicious, nutritious meals using the finest produce and groceries.  I handle all of the details including menu planning, grocery shopping, meal preparation and kitchen cleanup, giving you several hours each week to do the things you would rather be doing.

If you are a do-it-yourselfer; you will be interested in my cooking classes, which will show you how to prepare tasty, plant-based meals.  It's like having a private cooking show in your own kitchen!  Invite some friends over and watch Chef Mark prepare a simply elegant plant-based meal for your enjoyment.

My wife's grandmother would sit down to the feast set out on the table at family dinners and exclaim, "We eat tonight!"  You'll be saying the same thing with The Duke of Fork's Personal Chef Service.  I would be delighted to discuss with you how I can save you time and improve your diet, well-being, and overall happiness.  Contact me at 614-306-6843 or email

Healthy and Happy Dining!
