Featured Vancouverite: Mark Tagulao

Hometown: Vancouver, British Columbia

How long have you been a Vancouverite? Born and raised — 31 years and counting.

I’m a Pastry Chef/Consultant and Owner/Operator at MARKED EDIBLE DESIGNS, where I create specialty cakes for birthdays, weddings, and special occasions, along with teaching classes in pastry and other avenues of edible art. You can visit the website above for more information, and follow me @ediblemark for the latest updates. Earlier this year, I also concluded my consultancy and recipe development for the highly publicized Cartems Donuts. I currently offer my services and MARKED products at the Woodland Smokehouse & Commissary.

Best way to spend $50 in Vancouver:
I have an affinity for sweets, but I also enjoy an active lifestyle. A personal training session with Tiz at Tiz Training will get you going for the day. It will keep you motivated to enjoy the outdoors in Vancouver, from running or cycling the seawall, to hiking the Grouse Grind.

Best Vancouver haiku:
I enjoy my sweets
Vancouver is filled with them
But must work it off

Top insider tip for visitors:
There are many interesting places to shop and eat in Vancouver that are off of the beaten path. Don’t be afraid to explore.

  1. I’d love to see our Head Chef Instructor, Dahn Bryan, interviewed for your Featured Vancouverite. She teaches kids, of all ages, how to cook nutritious meals and how to enjoy the process at the same time. She instils a passion within the kids and they leave here feeling good about themselves as well as taking pride and ownership of what they’ve accomplished in our kitchens.

    • Thanks for the suggestion, Debby! I’ll reach out to Dahn this week.

    Should have posted this first…..Mark is simply the best. If you ever have an opportunity to take his Macaron class DO IT! You won’t be disappointed as these are the best Macarons in the city.

    Great interview. I have had a few of the pastries he has made and they’re the best in the city. He’s a seriously talented man.

    Had dinner the last week at The Endless Meal Supper Club. Would be interested to hear more about Kristen (sorry, don’t know her last name) the person who throws the social dinners.

    We had a really great time and it seems like a pretty novel concept, at least for Vancouver.

    • Thanks Karen! I’ll do a bit of investigating and will reach out to Kristen this week.
