Mark McCrowe was born and raised in St.John's NL. Growing up around simple Newfoundland dishes using fresh seafood and wild game inspired an appreciation of our local style of food and where it comes from. After studying culinary and baking and pastry arts in British Columbia and working in some of Van city's best kitchens he returned home to further his own individual style as a chef. Opening his first restaurant "Aqua"at the age of 26 and his second more casual gastropub "The Club" at the age of 29. Mark is living his dream cooking the food he loves to cook and doing it in the place and for the people that mean so much to him............Happy cooking!!
