Mark loves to cook simple and surprising dishes, designed to inspire the viewer and get everyone cooking. In the kitchen he is joined by Nadia, who provides enthusiastic ingredient prepping and inquisitive questions about Mark’s cooking .

In each episode Nadia and Mark are joined by a guest chef and a foodie celebrity guest. In one of the recipe items – Guest Chef Challenge – Mark pits himself against that week’s guest chef, in a themed lightly competitive cook off.
