14 years of experience comes from Chef Mark Ingram. Growing up in Airdrie and Calgary, Mark worked in many restaurants throughout both cities. Getting his formal training through SAIT while working with the Toad N’Turtle Pubhouse group, Mark’s love for fresh and fun food took off. After finishing his apprenticeship, Mark continued his learning for food with opening several restaurants with the Toad N’Turtle group, and also working with the Cactus Club Company. Coming to Distinctive Catering in 2008, Mark has been in love with the broad range of foods and events the catering business has had to offer. With his flair for twisting up classical and modern dishes Chef Mark always aims for the healthy, tasty and freshest dishes his culinary team and himself can provide for you.
