Chef Mark

A little about ME!

My name is Mark Terry, better known amongst my 4 and under year old clients as Mr. Mark.  I’ve been a member of Emmanuel Lutheran Church since the sixties.  I am a retired Civil Engineers formerly employed by the Department of Defense for 35 years. I have always had a love for cooking and baking.  However, I never thought I would be cooking for folks under 3 feet tall.

I am an avid VA Tech football fan where from where I graduated.  Class of ‘81.  I have traveled to various interesting places over the years to include Japan, Iran and Italy as well as many points of interest within the United States.   I collect shot glasses from every new place I go.  I have well over 100 of these tiny treasures.

Favorite hobbies

My hobbies include youth ministry, volleyball, cooking, baking, music, theater, fine arts, wine tasting and fine dining experiences.

Favorite food

I love anything peanut butter.  And, I’m a meataterian!  My favorite restaurant is Tuscanos Brazilian Grill.

Something else interesting

I also know American Sign Language which I found to be a very interesting language. One of the most rewarding experiences I have had is interpreting for the Deaf in an educational, worship or church performance setting.   However, my current most rewarding job now is to cook for your preschoolers.
