Executive Sous Chef Marck Banagan
Born and raised in Hercules, California, Marck Banagan fell in love with cooking at a very young age. As a child, he spent weekend mornings in his grandmother's kitchen helping her prep for large, elaborate family meals. Her passion for cooking and sharing food was contagious. Marck treasured every moment spent with his grandmother and appreciated learning her techniques and secret recipes. Her Filipino style cuisine made a lasting impression on Marck. He carries that with him today as he creates dishes that are extremely beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. His greatest culinary reward comes when he has made a lasting impression - creating a dining experience that lingers long after the meal has been enjoyed.
