“The incredibly talented Mark Lane from Culinary Lane cooked the most outstanding 3 course dinner. He suggested wines to match each course and all I had to do was provide the wine glasses the wine and I added the ivy centerpiece(he provides everything else...and cleans up too... such a treat!). He introduced every course and left the kitchen immaculate after. I highly recommend him, such a memorable evening."

"We had the most awesome experience having Mark cook for us at home for our Dad's 60th Birthday. Everything was absolutely delicious and perfect, and eating at home made it even better as we had little ones running around. Which meant the adults could enjoy a beautiful meal and drink! Thanks so much Mark, we had the best night & the food/ service was exceptional!"

“Last week Mark cooked a 5 course menu for 11 people for my husband’s 40th. Right from the first contact he was very professional and accomodating with changes to the number of people, start time and dietary requirements.
pleasure! It was an ideal way to host a party where the food and clean up was taken care of, all we had to do was sit down and eat and spend time with our friends.

“Mark was an absolute professional. He even allowed me to choose two selections for each part of the courses we had. The food was out of this world presented beautifully. 
Would 100 times infinity have him cook for us again!
