Pasta Mark Bio

I’m Chef Mark aka Pasta Mark! As a child, I found sanctuary in the kitchen cooking with family. This early experience sparked my passion for cooking, which led me to culinary school. Although I’ve served as a sous-chef and a chef in Michelin-starred restaurants in both Chicago and New York City, it wasn’t until 2020, under the mentorship of chefs Evan Funke and Marc Vetri, that I began to truly hone my craft in making handmade pasta. I’ve also worked with renowned chefs such as Stephanie Izard, Eric Greenspan, and April Bloomfield, and winning a Food Network TV show was a career highlight. Showcasing my ability to blend traditional and modern Italian cooking, I often host engaging pasta pop-up events and classes by bringing delicious handmade pasta with bold flavors to every dish I create.
