So today was suppose to be the day that the new Urbanfoodguy site went live...but due to a number of issues that isn't going to happen.....sorry, it's all very frustrating, great headway has been made but it is way more work and way more difficult than I could have imagined. My hope is sometime next week I will keep you up to date and in the mean time will still be bogging here.
Urbanfoodguy aka Mark Owen Self taught cook with an environmental/political bent. 28 years of cooking experience. I live in Manhattan on the Lower East Side in an apartment with an amazing kitchen thanks to my partner of 21 + years, Neil. In the last 4 years I have focused more and more on food. It started at the same time as I was about to open up my import/retail business LaoLao Handmade. Over these years I have been a private chef, catering and 4 years of Food Styling. I've worked for most of the major food magazines such as : Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. Check out this site for some photos of my work. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network with Bobby Flay and Paula Dean.
