Hi, I'm Mark!

I hail from the charming city of Dublin. My adventure started back in '91 when I waved goodbye to school. I roamed from country to country, embracing different cultures and flavors along the way.

London stole my heart for 20 years

I dove headfirst into the culinary universe and had the privilege of working alongside some of the finest chefs in the UK. I even had the honor of gracing the kitchens of 1 & 2 Michelin Star establishments.

Settling down in Stockholm

I landed a position as the head of the Pastry team at the newly opened Haymarket Hotel. I poured my heart and soul into the role for two and a half years until an amazing opportunity came knocking at The Grand Hotel Stockholm.

Then the pandemic hit, giving me time to reflect and figure out my next move…

Et voila! Spongecookies was conceived

So buckle up, my friends, because we're is about to take you on a taste adventure like no other. We're not just baking treats. We're sprinkling happiness, one delicious bite at a time.
