Executive Sous Chef
Chef Mark Kowal joined A Divine Event as a transplant from Boston Massachusetts. Mark has worked as a chef in the catering field for the past 15 years, working for some of the best catering companies in the Boston market where he honed his skills as a catering chef. Born in upstate New York where he learned the love of food from his mother’s skills as a cook and baker. Cooking for family gatherings and working in his uncles catering company as a young boy helped mold him towards his career today.
Leaving Buffalo New York at the age of 18 and traveling the country, then the world as a member of the US Navy, Mark got the chance to experience life from many angles. Mark believes the knowledge he learned from owning a blues club and restaurant, working as a traveling chef running large functions at sporting events and touring with Tyler Perry as his personal chef, has given him a great insight on how to give a special touch to any and all events.
“I love the high energy and creative latitudes that come with working for a company that thrives to be the best at what we do. Moving back to Atlanta and working in this market has shown me that people everywhere love great food and exciting events. It makes me smile and extremely proud to know that I am a part of making this happen for our guests!”
