Yoga Mat to Placemat: Move Well, Eat Well, Be Well: The Duchess and I are excited to offer this special workshop to help you feel terrific all year long through movement and healthy eating. Start off with a great two-hour Fascia Release and Alignment class with registered yoga teacher Loretta Zedella (aka The Duchess of Fork), as we use foam rollers, small therapy balls, bolsters,and yoga postures to release tension from the body, revealing ease of body and peace of mind. Then, learn how a healthy, plant-based diet is a wonderful complement to your yoga practice or any exercise routine with Chef Mark and a two-hour cooking demonstration and sampling! If you are curious about how to get started with a healthier diet or looking to expand your kitchen skills and repertoire, this class is for you! We would love to bring this workshop to your community center, place of employment, church, or other location. Please contact me at Chef@TheDukeofFork.com with questions or for additional information about this workshop.
Saturday, August 9: I will be making an appearance on "Good Day Columbus" on Channel 28 to talk about how simple it is to cook and eat a healthy, plant-based meal. Be sure to tune in or set your DVR. I'll post the time of my appearance as soon as the details are worked out.

Thursday, August 21: Cooking Counts at Lucky's Market in Clintonville. I lived across the street from Lucky's first store in Boulder, Colorado, for a time and was impressed with the selection of fresh, local ingredients. Imagine my delight when they opened a store in Columbus, and I am thrilled to partner with them to offer a Cooking Counts series this summer. My cooking demonstration on August 21 at 6:30PM will be preceded on Tuesday, August 12, by an educational talk with Lucky's nutritionist from Boulder, CO., Tracee Box. . I'll be showing you how a plant-based diet can be very price friendly, healthy, and extraordinarily yummy. Seating is limited, and advanced registration is required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Nutrition talk is free, and cooking demonstration is only $15.
Don't forget that I also offer private, in-home cooking classes that are tailored to your individual needs and questions. Invite a few friends over and we'll make it a cooking party! Contact me for pricing and more information.
