AFTER HOURS - HEAD CHEF BIO
Mark used to work in the music industry, but quit on principle to become a Chef when Macklemore won a grammy. He’s worked at some good places but now realises he knew nothing about cooking, humility, or how to be a man until he was taken under the wing of Joe Izzo, the owner of Cafe 1220 and Old Amersham cultural magnate.
His palette swings to the sweet because mum fed him too much Sunny Delight as a child, but is balanced in his food by his acetous manner and general bitterness towards the modern capitalist system. Mark doesn’t understand much at all, but does know people should have fun when they come out to eat. From the music, to the service, to the food, the sincere aim of 1220 After Hours is that you leave with a smile on your face, and a few pound notes less in your pocket.
