The Duchess and I wish each of you a safe, fun, and healthy holiday season. Thank you to everyone who helped to make 2014 a fun and memorable year by attending a class, sampling some delicious plant-based meals, and most of all made a commitment to enjoy better health and more happiness through food choices.

The Duchess and I recently made an appearance on "Good Day Columbus" , demonstrating a healthy, plant-based dish on a segment called "Couples Cooking." So much fun, and I even taught the host how to zest a lemon! You can watch the complete video clip by clicking here.

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.
