Mark is precise, clear and calm in showing us the way of making absolutely extraordinary vegan meals. Every day is spent in a fun and engaging learning environment. Mahalo Mark!” – Dave Niekerk, Seattle Vegan Fusion Cuisine intensive student

“I cannot put a value on this training. It has and will touch and change every part of my life for the better. I have learned skills I can use cooking for my family of six or in a work environment. I have developed ideas for business and enriched my love of humanity, the environment and myself!” – Lisa Ward, Kaua’i Vegan Fusion Cuisine Intensive student

~~~~~

“The workshop is not only great for experienced vegans and vegetarians, but also for anybody who is just interested in healthy living. Even as a non-vegetarian, I learned so many incredible recipes that I can’t wait to try!” – Aki Morita, Kaua’i Vegan Fusion Cuisine Intensive student

My family has now committed to eating vegetarian at least five times a week and we are now drinking one green smoothie a day. I notice that when we eat out I am also choosing vegetarian food as it is just becoming what my body wants. This is just the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship with vegan foods and flavor-filled cooking.” – Victoria Markham, Kaua’i Vegan Fusion Cuisine Intensive student
