The Fusion of Creativity
An evening of 'gastronomic ease' when myself, Peter Mundy and other Chefs formed together to provide a wonderful evening all coming together at the beautifully restored Upton Barn near Cullompton.

This is mine…
I am proud to launch my long anticipated book 'This is mine' reflecting on a truly starry career while showcasing my recipes that have made my restaurant one of the finest rural eateries in the UK.
The Masons Arms achieved a Michelin Star six months after opening and retains the accolade.
The book showcases fabulous game dishes among an array of 70 recipes all tailored to the domestic kitchen.
This is mine is a title that will delight the home cook with a wonderful forward by Michel Roux OBE
“I look upon Mark as I look upon my son. He is a dear man. He is one of my closest friends. He is honourable and gentlemanly, he is thoughtful and does the right thing. This Is Mine features many of the recipes that feature at The Masons Arms, which is delightful.
“His book is a great achievement. Mark has created food that people like to eat. This Is Mine is beautifully photographed
and the dishes are lovely. I find Mark’s ideas invigorating. I am certain readers will thoroughly enjoy This Is Mine. Like the man himself, it does not disappoint.”
The book is now on sale here at The Masons Arms or via mail order.
£25 and £4.25 p&p if sent within the UK
