Crisp Cuisine was founded in 2017 by Chef Mark Barahona, born of a desire to share his passion for and knowledge of fine cuisine with the world. Chef Mark’s vision is to create inspired menus and unforgettable culinary experiences.
Born and raised in Vancouver, from Costa Rican heritage, Mark’s love of cooking was evident from a young age. Always one to help in the kitchen, he grew up making empanadas for his family. Drawing on his upbringing in the family’s kitchens, Mark honours loyalty, value, and quality.
He’s passionate about his craft, and eager to share his knowledge. Warm and engaging, with a little bit of an edge, it doesn’t take much to get Chef Mark going on one of his legendary food rants, just ask him about avocados!
