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 moveā€¦

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.
