Mark was born and raised in So Cal. He learned to love “good” food from his family (especially his Uncle Cliff and Grandma Vera) and started cooking very young. He worked his way through school cooking professionally before spending most of the rest of his life working in an equally glamorous profession—politics. Mark, his wife Melissa, and his sons live in Long Beach.
If you can eat it or drink it near Long Beach, and Mark really likes it, he’ll tell you about it here!
