Entertaining expert Mark Addison has had an insatiable curiosity about cooking, designing and entertaining since he was very young. His personal style and love of creating ‘the perfect experience’ has made him a sought after voice on all things chic and clever – from home entertaining and signature drinks to design and cooking. Great living doesn’t have to empty the wallet.
At age 7 Mark mastered donut making and at 13, he began hosting dinner parties for his siblings and neighborhood friends, developing his signature meals that are still requested at family gatherings. A native of Miami, Florida, he enrolled in culinary classes while still in high school and added a hefty dose of theatrics and presentation while studying theater in college and working as a catering chef.
Shortly after moving to NYC, Mark started his own company, EVENTSTYLE, where he merged his talents in entertaining, food, drinks and design. EVENTSTYLE became the “go-to” company for celebrity events, major product launches and huge non-profit galas.
Mark has been graced with a big personality, a wildly creative imagination, and a passion to “make it happen”. He approaches a recipe or design challenge by deconstructing it, then reviving it with his own unique inspiration to create for the viewer a fresh perspective on even the most classic tradition – blue prints are included.
Mark finds unique and unusual ingredients to give his work a special edge; a sample of which can be found on his website http://www.markaddison.com. Here, listed under topics such as Culinary Curiosities, Master Mixology Skills, and Party Engineering, Mark shares his must-haves tools and tricks of the trade to help you “engineer” the perfect party – any time, any place.
Mark admits that he enjoys cooking and entertaining friends at home as much as he does planning huge events. “Things are always more fun to do with loved ones”.
Mark’s content can be found in magazines and online publications, or during TV appearances in which he shares some easy steps, tips and tricks. Everyone is bound to find a new drink recipe or idea to take home. His personal philosophy is based on personal expression with an “anyone can do it” attitude.
