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, health-supportive 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 614-306-6843614-306-6843 or email

Healthy and Happy Dining!

The Duchess and I made an appearance on "Good Day Columbus" on Saturday, August 9, 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 with questions or for additional  information about this workshop.

Thursday, August 28: 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 28 at 6:30PM will show you how a plant-based diet can be very price friendly, healthy, and extraordinarily yummy. Seating is limited, and advanced registration of $15 is required by emailing

I will be taking a little time off from teaching cooking classes in September, so watch for announcements and more information on a cooking demonstration coming up at Humana Health's Guidance Center on October 1, a "Plant-Based 101" class at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens on Wednesday, October 29, and a Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner class on Tuesday, November 18, also at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I will also offer a "Healthy Holidays" class on Saturday, November 8, at the beautiful Dawes Arboretum in Newark, Ohio. More classes and demonstrations are in the works, so keep watching here or on my Facebook page for details.

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.
