“I have used your teas in many dishes over the years. I love the Mountain Berry, it is great for making jellies to serve with desserts, great with chocolate! I have a wood-smoked lamb rack with the chamomile tea, and have used the peppermint in soups and dressings. I use the Japanese tea in green tea mousse.”

Quickly moving up as Commis Chef at the Kilkea Castle and at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin, he then took a position as Sous Chef at the prestigious Soho House in London and later as Executive Chef at the Shanahan’s on the Green.

Chef Mark has won multiple awards of gold and silver medals at the Hotel Olympia, and a silver medal with Irish Culinary Team at the 2006 Culinary Olympics in Berlin 2006.
